    3. You know exactly how to manipulate the tap to create the perfect water temperature and when to get in.


    It's an art.

    4. You do your best reading in the tub, and you're not above spending as long as it takes to race to the finish of a page-turner.

    5. Candles are a must, and you have different scents for different times.
