If you’ve ever found yourself randomly having a sudden but striking realization about something totally random… well, you’re not alone. They are known as ‘shower thoughts’, and as the name suggests, they tend to happen to a lot of people while they’re in the shower. Here are a selection of some of our favorite tweets of things people have thought about.
