The nicest bathroom I’ve ever been in.

March 10, 2013


Lloyd had some Republican thing in Kearney, Nebraska today, so we drove out there in a tremendous fog. I told Lloyd that I had just been marveling at how my stomach hasn’t bothered me in quite some time, and suddenly the anxiety of driving was making it all icky.

The fog cleared up by the time we reached Kearney, though, and it actually turned into a very nice day. Storms were forecast for later in the day, so it was neat seeing the different parts of the sky.


I dropped Lloyd off at the conference center and then went to McDonald’s to do some work for school. There was a group of farmers talking and it was great listening to them – they all sounded like they could have been uncles of Lloyd.


After that I went dorking around the stores, but then back to the conference center to work until Lloyd finished. I deeply regret not taking a photo of the marble counter where I worked, but I can show the gorgeous, gorgeous bathroom.


I appreciated that they had all the toiletries I could ever need. I thought about taking a bath in the sink and staring fresh.


And lastly, the little lounge, where I should have cozied up to finish writing.


Anything you want to share about the Republican thing, Lloyd?

Lloyd: Our bathroom wasn’t as nice.

    I don’t know about McDonald’s, but having done schoolwork in a conference center lobby before, I can say that it’s a wonderful place to get things done. I should try that here… there are plenty of fancy hotels.

    After traveling 40 hours by car to & from Disney (one hr still to go as I write) with three kids, I can truly appreciate a clean, pretty & EMPTY public bathroom. Although the one I have at home isn’t as opulent as the one in your post I’m looking forward to its familiar flush!

    WOW!! That is a a bathroom to beat all bathrooms. Did you feel underdressed while occupying it?

    I notice they have deoderant on the supply tray? Do people really share that product? I thought it was in the same category as a toothbrush.

      I wondered about that, too. We keep a can of spray deodorant at school fur such emergencies, because of cooties. My guess was that you wipe the top with a tissue before and after you use it?
