If you looked at my 6-month recap post you may have noticed that I got some life advice while sitting in a toilet stall in Thailand. You may have also noted that I was practicing my photography while sitting toilet stall in Thailand. I’m not embarrassed to say that I took my fancy Canon camera into that feces cubical on purpose. In fact, I repeated this seemingly juvenile documentation a few times while there. Pictures speak a thousand words, so I am presenting you with these examples….
Exhibit A- an easy to read tutorial on the steps one should take while ridding themselves of waste that was inside a stall in Chiang Mai. This girl really knows how to get in and get out.
Exhibit B- this is just bizarre. For one, I understand that Eastern toilets work very differently than our western thrones, but were there actual toilet accidents caused by people climbing up and popping a squat? Then there is the melodramatic toilet paper disposal instruction. Sure, if a good number of restroom patrons all decided to birth alien babies in a single night this could be an issue for days. But usually if one person flushes the paper down, then the clog is immediate and 1 plunging session away from being remedied. But then there is the grand finale- Ghost? Person wearing a pillowcase? Some kind of toilet monster/man/ghost? What the f*ck is that thing!???? Its only purposes for being in this world are taking over as the new star of my nightmare and repeating the previous bin discussion.
Exhibit C- now this is how you give the public a PSA on toilet etiquette. We have pictures for those of us who can’t read Thai or even begin to understand the logic behind those swirls. On top of that, all the important guidelines for celebrating the porcelain gods are included. And this was all done without a toilet ghost scarring you into using the trashcan. Krabi International Airport has mastered the toilet situation.
Anyways, because there are toilet stalls all over the world that grab my attention, I might make this a semi regular feature. Laurenzo Shulzini is meeting me in May to help gather the remainder of my belongings from storage (aka- my parents’ garage). We’ll be loading up a Uhaul and road tripping back to Denver. So, there will definitely be a good bit of restroom action as we make our way through Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, & Colorado. Stay tuned.
Summary- I have a healthy(?) curiosity with toilet stalls.
