The Bathroom Debate
My friends were laughing about the look on my face when she said that. Apparently it was the same face one might make when finding something seriously disgusting in the back of the refrigerator. I don't get it.
I told her, "I love my husband so much, we have agreed to not put that visual aid in our memory banks." Why would anyone want that? I can't think of anyone who would look even remotely attractive while doing their business.
There are two reasons I feel this way.
1. When I was 11 years old I accidentally walked in our bathroom and found my grandpa standing there buck naked. Two words...Visual Assault. Big time.
My question is this: What on earth is so important that you can not wait a few minutes? What life crisis made talking through the bathroom door unacceptable? What topic is so serious, you don't mind hearing random "sound effects"? It's just so wrong! Ugh.
Then again, maybe it's just me. I'm a talk through the door sort of a gal. Maybe I'm the only one of my kind. Either way, I want few moments in the day to be alone. I beg of you, don't come through that bathroom door unless I died in there and my ghost has given you permission.
