I have a serious beef to pick with you men. It's something that has always irked me and frankly, I'm just getting sick of it. It's the amount of time that you spend in the bathroom. I know that this stigma has always been place on women. We're in there forever, we're always doing our hair, blah blah blah. At least you can come in while were hogging the mirror. You're in there for hours with the door closed. What the hell are you doing in there?
When TH gets home from the office, visiting commode is the first stop on his list of things to do. He'll make a beeline for the master bathroom. He sets the mood by putting on a CD or the television at a volume that can be heard across the street even though he is in the next room. He grabs his latest periodical, magazines and such, and ascends the throne. I will be lucky if I see him for the next 45 minutes to and hour. He claims he is truthfully going to the bathroom. I told him that if it takes that long for things to move, we're investing in a case of Fiber bars and making a doctors appointment.
I've heard all the excuses for these leisurely visits to the loo. -- "It gives me a break from the kids, I'm having some "me time", It's the only place I get peace....". -- Well, we don't have any kids, he can have all the "me time" in the world and we live in a house that has 3 bedrooms. If he needs some peace, he has lots of room to move about. If he's taking too long, I just crack the door and send the dogs in. Nothing makes you more uncomfortable than having two dogs stare at you while you're warming the crapper.
Isn't it uncomfortable? Don't your legs fall asleep? Don't you get the imprint of the seat on your legs? Why on earth would you want to relax in there surrounded by your own stink?
I'm not one of those women that pretends that this necessary act is above me. I do it. I just don't make an entire process out of it. I will admit I have brought the phone in there with me a time or too. But, it's a quick trip - in and out. I don't play music, bring literature and pack up like I'm spending a day in another town.
What is it about men and their relationship with "john"?
