Toiletries

That there's an "enlarge" option on this drawing of an average American toilet is one of the many odd and/or enjoyable things in the Wall Street Journal's current article about toilets, artwork, and the ways in which they converge.

The Toilet Seat Art Museum, mentioned in the piece, currently has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on Yelp.

Sooo, it's ok to talk about them once they have paint on them, but Americans can never say they're going to the toilet. Always "the bathroom" or "the restroom". (My mum gave me anxious lectures on this topic each time we visited the US when I was a young'un), and then I'd get into the habit and ask for the bathroom in Australia, and puzzled Australians would show me to the room with the sink and the bathtub, which is often next to the tiny room with the toilet in it.

@iceberg I am the queen of euphemistic speech (customer service rep holla!) and the idea of announcing "I'm going to the toilet" makes me feel like I'm breaking into hives.

According to my Russian teacher, the slang word for a toilet in Russian is "Unitas," from the brand of toilet that was originally imported to Russia from Spain. Not to be confused with the word "туалет", which is pronounced similarly to "toilet" but means restroom or lavatory.

One time during a summer barbecue at my brother's house we caught this documentary on TV about the history of the toilet. My sister-in-law and I and a handful of other people were absolutely riveted. The back door was in that room, so people kept coming in and out, asking us what the heck we were watching and why we weren't outside. TOILETS. FASCINATING.

This made me think of a friend of mine, who's working on a giant toilet for some Times Square installation. I have no idea what the purpose is, but it's...interesting?

In my social world we've developed a bit of code. If the time for hanging out is a little squishy we say "7ish" and nobody gets pissed if you're 10 minutes late, or if you're 10 minutes early you're not allowed to make fun of my not wearing pants yet. If I'm hosting a BBQ or something I'll say the start time for the party, and the time we intend to get the main meal out. If they miss the meal, they miss the meal, and I'm not holding a plate for them.Phu Quoc Travel
