Adventures in incipient dementia.

Morning ablutions. I wash my face, shave, and clean my teeth. I turn off the tap and at that exact instant I hear an unfamiliar and loud buzzing. What could it be? I remember that during my bathroom refit the plumber fitted a pump to increase my previously pathetic water pressure. Had to be that. I turn off various power supplies to verify my hypothesis. Buzzing continues. Impossible. I am in the twilight zone. But no; I have failed to turn off my toothbrush before standing it down, where it now vibrates merrily against the wall.
