Super absorbent

April 27, 2007

Journal, Lloyd

This happened before I went to the hospital, but I didn’t get to write about it, because we couldn’t get to the picture (and it seemed like maybe there were more pressing matters). I don’t have a lot of things that are “my job” to do around the house, but reloading TP is one of them. I’m normally very good about it, and this was my first mishap. I didn’t want to put it in the trash, because it was all wet, so I put it in the tub so it could drain a bit.

This sort of thing doesn't happen in Germany

Now just a minute ago, as I was writing this, I wondered whatever happened to that roll? Sure enough it was still in the tub, and it was only a little bit moldy. Yes, just a little bit.

    HA! I’m always afraid of doing that, ever since reading a snippit in a Christmas letter. This family’s toddler tried to “help” put away the TP and 4 double rolls ended up in the bowl. According to them, that’s all you need to soak up the entire bowl. Too bad you couldn’t have tossed in a few more to test that.

    It doesn’t happen in Germany because they have the “shelf toilets”? They had those in Amsterdam. It’s totally gross!

    Most toilet seats come with lids…it prevents such mishaps…that’s why they’re called lids. I think you’ve been ripped off -- go back to Menards and demand your money back, you should have received a lid with that seat!

    So …. you & Lauren haven’t showered since this mishap?
