All That and the [Bathroom] Sink

Bathrooms are more than just for, you know, taking care of business.   Other “forms” of business are taken care of in there.  I know that I’ve had all sorts of different types of “encounters” in the bathroom.  Too many to go into detail about each and every one.

Butt (hardy-har-har)…

I do remember this one party, that Michael and I attended, for the then-girlfriend of my cousin Mike.  There were all sorts of spirits involved. There was a bathroom sink involved.  There was knocking involved.   Things were definitely upside down.  I guess you had to be there to understand.

While this memory is vivid and insanely interesting, it is just that…a memory!
(One that I won’t soon forget.)

These days, though, the bathroom serves as my mini-escape.  That is unless a certain little person weasels his way in when I seeking ten minutes of solitude.  Then it becomes a game of see how many things I can take out from under the sink before Mama goes crazy.  Oh, and if I’m having a conversation with someone that lasts more than ten minutes, [they] can be guaranteed that I’m “my office.”   The echo probably gives it away.

    Love the picture, and yes, I hear the bathroom is sometimes the only place in the house with any sanity.

    Ahh I wish for the day that I can go into “my office” and be alone. I still have a follower.

    I love the shot though….reminds me I need to clean the bathroom ;) My sink doesn’t shine that well.

    I love that shot and the attendant story. That said – I am secretly aghast at the phallic symbolism – or am I the only one who sees that? In which case, Annie is right and I really am a sick bastard.

    Ah, the life of a Secret Agent Mama. Shouldn’t you have top secret equipment that makes you disappear, and stuff?

    I’m with *A Whole Lot of Nothing*. How did you get your fauset to sparkle like that? I’m so jealous, but not enough so to go actually shine mine.
    Wonderful story. I enjoy *One Minute Writer*. Haven’t been to *Self-Portrait Challenge*.

    Haha! This totally reminds me of a conversation I was having with a girlfriend this weekend. We visiting her new studio/condo in San Diego and on the “grand tour” she pointed out the bathroom as the place where she “takes phone calls” because that’s the only place for any privacy. Hahaha. Good times.

    The bathroom is our gathering place. We’re always honest in the bathroom.

    I love the fact that the bathroom is the great equalizer, we all come there with our shit, but leave clean. But, oh how I get the use of it as a hiding place.

    Amazing picture. I covert your flickr, just so you know.
