    USE OF a and the

    I know "a" is used before a singular countable noun and "the" when we say something or refer to something in specific and for singular and plural countable noun.But I get confused using it can you please elaborate on the use of "a" and "the"
    Please correct these sentences grammatically( Is the use of a correct over here and why)
    1-I'm going to take a shower
    2-I was in the shower when you called.
    3-I'm going for a salsa night
    4-On the way to the exams my bike got punctured.

    1-I'm going to take a shower (I took shower twice today)
    2-I was in the shower when you called. (you know where you were at that time)
    3-I'm going for a salsa night (You are not going for more than one Salsa)
    4-On the way to the exams my bike tyre got punctured.
    ===Not a teacher===

    Further explanation to this by a teacher would be very helpful.
