Ladies Only

Posted on January 28, 2009


I just finished reading this fab book : A Men’s Guide to the Women’s Bathroom. A light read of course; but i’m inspired.

Turns out there’s a lot you boys don’t know about the goings-on of the ladies loo..the happenings within.

Let me tell you a thing or two about women’s bathrooms gentlemen.
They’re pretty. They’re pretty, smell nice, and have furniture! Yes, cute little mini-sofas in case we get weary from all the in-house activity. The cubicles are so roomy you want to bring in some wall-hangings and call it home. There are full-length mirrors for does-my-bum-look-big-in-this moments, and soap dispensors that actually work. Hand-dryers that double-up as hair-dryers, and even hooks to hang our bags/scarves/ex-boyfriends while we finish our business.

And in case you haven’t noticed, we women almost always visit the potty in groups. This doesn’t mean we all ‘go’ just means we’re either:
(a) headed for an urgent can-not-wait-another-minute gossip session.
(b) going to powder our nose. (And fluff up our hair, lengthen those lashes and gloss’ify those lips).
(c) off to sort out an unaccounted for dilemma (‘I cannot buhlieve he didn’t notice I did my nails!’ ‘ should like so totally dump him.’)
(d) actually going in for a wee (very rare)

So boys, you might be blessed with the ability to relieve yourselves anywhere you please, but we’ve got 5-star lavatories to make up for any discomfort. Sort of like a reward for holding it in for so long. (Gooood bladder! Now have a treat.)

Seems like the scales have been balanced to me.
