Burka Woman was tired of being late all the time.
She couldn't understand why Ned would spend so much time in front of the bathroom mirror before going out at night. He was quite insecure, often asking Burka if he looked strong and handsome in his armour. Such neediness was unsexy.
She decided at last to send him off into the desert, to sort his head out. It was very wise of her. Ned returned after six weeks, fearless and breezy, with restored confidence and zest for life. He and Burka built a new bath-house out of recycled timber and mudbrick, on the riverside lined with giant eucalypts and overlooking the calm water. Outdoor bath-houses are all the go for outlaws.
