    My dad always read the “Reader’s Digest” in the bathroom.

    Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers. Great books to read anywhere.

    Her choice. In that case she wasn’t going to read it.

    Earl reading the labels – good one. I still do the same, and it’s very – ahem – enlightening. For example, there’s a furniture polish out there that proclaims to the world, “made with real lemon juice.” But the lemonade mixes and so on proclaim just as loudly, “artificially flavored.” So we’re drinking the Gilbert’s chemistry set and spraying the good stuff on the coffee table?

    She won’t touch the paper after Earl has had it in the bathroom?!? How dirty is that bathroom?!? Or… just exactly WHAT is Earl using the newspaper for?!? Nevermind! I don’t want to know!

    I used to turn all the bottles on the counter upside down. Having 2 younger sisters, there were always LOTS of bottles. One day, Mom said, “I fixed you!” All the bottles in the bathroom had round tops.

    Finally someone else finds this habit disgusting. No I am not touching that paper when you come out of the bathroom!

    My Dad’s favorite expression, as he headed to the bathroom, the newspaper in hand, was: " Anyone wants me, I’ll be in the library. "

    When they do invent a time machine, I’m betting it will be a lot like a bathroom. Time inside that room is different than time outside.

    I pictured the famous thought experiment with a pair of twins. One is inside the bathroom for fifty years. The other is outside it. You can bet the outside one is going to look a lot older after fifty years.

    Why the heck do people need to take stuff into the bathroom to read, anyway? Why can’t they just go in, sit, shit, and pee and then get out? OK, maybe if you’re constipated you’ll be in there a while. Maybe then you’ll want to have something to read. I’ve never taken anything in there to read.

    If I were Earl, I’d take Opal’s recipe file box to the bathroom the next time and leave it on the toilet lid.

    I agree with her. I want nothing to do with anything that’s been read in the bathroom.
