Al does not like to shower. He thinks it is a waste of time. He could be doing something fun. He does not like the feeling of water on his skin. He thinks his skin gets wrinkly quickly when he showers. He also does not like wasting water. California is in a drought. Al cares about the environment a lot. His parents tell him that he will lose his friends if he does not shower. Al actually already lost two friends. They told him they could not be around him anymore. At school, people call him "Garbage Guy." Al does not mind. He likes having a nickname.
