We All Do It.
When we have toddlers in our life, we talk about it….. often.
When we get older, we visit it….. often.
When we take photos of everything, we have many pictures of it.
I am talking about the loo, the lavatory, the privy, the throne room.
I have been sitting on this story for almost a year.
My post is an excuse to share a few fun photos from some of the bathrooms I have visited over the last few years.
The photos put a smile on my face. I hope they put a smile on yours.
The Laundromat Cafe, Reykjavik, Iceland, 2017
Hokonui, New Zealand
Larnach Castle, New Zealand, 2019. Our lodgings, 140 year-old stables. Shared bathroom facilities.
I Almost Peed Myself Laughing.
Janis, from Retirementally Challenged shared an exceptionally funny and witty post on her blog Sitting on the Deck of Bidet* For the sensitive folk still reading here, I caution you. Janis discusses “nether regions,” and “derrieres.”
I shared with Janis how our house in Nanaimo had a bidet in the ensuite bathroom and a laundry chute. When friends and family came over to visit the first thing they wanted to see was the bidet. Then they would throw something down the laundry chute. Janis brought up a good point. “As long as your guests didn’t get the bidet and laundry chute mixed up.”
Iceland is very windy. Cement filled tires secured to the porta potties.
April Fool’s Day.
I decided April Fool’s Day was a perfect day to make a fool of myself and share some silly and fun photos.
Every day is a perfect day to take care of our mental health.
Yes, life is exceptionally challenging and serious right now.
If laughter is the best medicine, then I choose to distract myself, even temporarily, with something that makes me smile.
I hope it makes you smile, too.
Do you have an April Fool’s Day story or prank to share?
Is there something that can still make you smile?
