When I was a little girl I once turned on the taps so strongly that I couldn’t remember which way to turn them to make the water stop. I turned and turned the taps each way, but the water kept pouring out of the faucet, quickly filling the sink. I started screaming for my mother, because I didn’t know what else to do. She told me I should only scream like that if someone was badly hurt.
