Public Places

I hate using public toilets. There is something simply wrong with the idea of multiple people using the same space for … well you know … especially bathrooms used by unrelated people with very little to connect themselves to each other. I try to avoid public bathrooms at all costs.

Its not just the poo taboo too. There’s a whole mixture of senses in the bathroom that are better left unsaid. I will speak of one however. I think there is nothing so disturbing as going to a public bathroom, sitting on a commode, and finding the seat to still be warm from the previous user’s body heat. At this point the standard journalistic questions of who, what, where, when, and why all flood my mind. Of course with questions comes my imagination trying to fill the gaps, and believe me my mind trying to fill in those blanks … well that’s just something you do not want to glimpse. AGH!

Maybe I can convince the rest of the world to not use public bathrooms and then when I do, I won’t have to worry about these thoughts.
