Bathroom Reader



I'm sure you know someone who does it, right?
I tend to sterotype and assume it is a.....well you know and can tell me!

Someone I know got a book for Christmas called Uncle John's Triumphant 20th Anniversary Bathroom Reader
by The Bathroom Reader Institute

Why couldn't I think up something so genius!

A book dedicated to the avid bathroom reader!


The back cover reads: Jam packed with 600 pages of extra-absorbing material.  As always the contents are divided by length: Quickies for the reader on the go, Medium-length articles for those regular visits, Long if you're staying a little longer, and an Extended-Sitting section for those leg-numbing experiences.

I was cleaning the bathroom and it was staring there beckoning me to take a peek.  Curiosity got the best of me.  What the heck could possibly be in there?  Flipping through the pages it was surprisingly interesting, who knew!

For all my writing bloggy buddies these are for you.  You seriuosly can get good ideas to add in a story with this book.  I have a feeling I might add bits of advice from the batroom reader on a regular basis!

You say "too lazy" for return shopping carts to the market month, I say, "February? Why would you pick one of the coldest and snowiest months to expect carts to be returned?!?!"

Also, bubble wrap day, they actually have a bubble wrap popping website out there somewhere. I mean, don't get me wrong, I found it entertaining when I was younger, and my kids love it too, but virtual popping? I just don't see it giving me the same thrill.
