Ad's Rules of the Bathroom
Sunday, October 25, 2009

Those who read my last blog know I've had water on the brain ... er ... mind.

Some Ad H20 History: I was raised on the desert-like high plains of Eastern Colorado, where water was very scarce, and even townspeople (as opposed to farmers) monitored rainfall. Whenever it rained -- and it wasn't very often, let me tell you -- the collective mood of townspeople was raised three or four notches.

Well, I've spent most of my adult life on the much-wetter east coast ... but even if you take the boy out of the desert, you can't take the desert out of the boy. Hence, this rule in our house:

When it comes to toilet use ... "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down."

Seriously, it does no harm to let pee sit for awhile. And think of how much water you'd save in a year.

Ad, I can't tell you how much it grosses me out to open the toilet and see pee in there! Sometimes my husband forgets to flush and I have to flush it before I can go. He says there is a new toilet that has a lighter flush for pee to save water...you should get that.

For Lord's sake, you're not supposed to shut the lid of the toilet when you pee and let it sit there. ....What do you want it to do? Ferment?
