Monday Mayhem - bathroom musings

Welcome to Monday Mayhem,

the home of Mayhem on a Monday. Every week is something different.Have fun!

Today's meme- Bathroom Musings

For each of the prompts, you may answer with an image, a sentence or however you want to.Simply copy and paste this into a post on your site and answer the prompts. Be sure to list your a direct link to your post and visit the other participants.

1. What do you read when you are sitting on the toilet?

Catalogs. Anytime I get a catalog I put it on the shelf.

2. Do you pee in the shower?

No. That's so gross!

3. Do you always wash your hands after you use the toilet?


4. Do you allow someone to come into the bathroom while you are using the toilet?

It happens all the time. Irish always has to come in and check out what's going on.

5. Do you clean your shower in the nude?

Technically...yes. Shower, spray the glass, exit, (leaving time for the spray to do it's magic), towel off, then back in to squeegee. TMI?

6. When you use the toilet at someone else's house do you go through their medicine cabinet and/or their bathroom cabinets and drawers?

Nah. I try not to use other people's bathrooms.

7. For the Men...Have you ever left the toilet seat up on purpose to irritate the woman in your life?

Son does it rarely. Since he is outnumbered 3 to 1, he pretty much has to comply or he'll hear it from all 3 of us.

8. For the Women...Have you ever fallen into the toilet because someone left the toilet seat up?


9. Do you courtesy flush?

What is that exactly?

10. Do you light a match or a candle or spray an air freshner when you are finished pooping?

No, we have fans in our bathrooms.

11. Have you ever fallen asleep on the toilet?

Actually...yes. When I was working I used to catch an afternoon cat nap.

12. What is the strangest thing you have ever flushed down the toilet?

I've never personally flushed anything strange, but the previous owners of my first house flushed a plastic CTA token keeper down the toilet. That was a nice $200 plumber bill. After that I learned how to take care of such plumbing problems myself. When my kids were toddlers they flushed a plastic apple from their kitchen set down that same toilet. It was wedged in good and wouldn't come out the top or the bottom. I ended up taking a cordless drill and drilling several holes in it and then collapsed it using a pair of pliers. Came right out after that, but of course the kids no longer had an apple for their kitchen. Lol!

Very clever of you figuring out how to do some of that plumbing work yourself.

Thanks for Participating.

I love the apple story! You are a "can-do" gal, Lola!

Lola said...

@ Melissa Mashburn - It was either figure it out or spend another $200 for a plumber.

@ Lin - Either $200 for the plumber or that much for a new toilet. And I'm sure the plumber would have laughed his a** off all the way to the bank. Even if I would have ruined the drill (which I didn't because I shop vac'd out the water in the bowl) I would have only been out $40 for the drill.

Way to solve the apple issue. :) Thankfully my son is now past the dropping things into the toilet time of his life. He typically dropped things like soap. Have a great day!

It just makes sense to spray that stuff in the shower while you're in there.OF course...we are females.

Thanks for playing.

Why you and harriet don't know about courtesy flush? What is that?

It really sucks when the toilet is broken. Good thing you are a plummer, opps no, easily found the solution to fix it.

No one on this planet knows what a "courtesy flush" is. It's official! Have a great day...
