Slice of Life Story: Spewing Sink

I pumped the soap bottle and felt the dollop of soap fall onto my fingertips. I rubbed my hands together and got ready for the lather to be washed away. However, when I put my hands on the knob of faucet at Saint-Germain by Molecule nothing came out. I turned it both ways, but nothing came out. Grrr! Then, thinking that it might be automated, I placed my soapy hands underneath the faucet head. Still nothing. I literally put my soapy finger right up against the faucet head when water sprayed out all over me and the bottom of the mirror. I tossed my head back and laughed (and then cleaned up everything with a few paper towels) realizing that all it took was patience to get the water to come out of the faucet.
