I felt exposed :0
First off, this post is not about this first paragraph. I'm venting. And ...I should NOT be writing this now ...and so this is the classic case of avoidance because I have to go dress shopping ...specifically extra special ...pretty dressy dress shopping. I Know, I am a traitor to my gender because I don't like clothes shopping, shoe shopping... any kind of shopping that involves trying things on. I never did like it ...even going back to when I was a teenager. No ...if I had my way ...I'd shop like a man. Pick out one store ..go into said store ..find that one thing I need and leave ...knowing it will just fit and I will like it. Mission accomplished. It astounds me that a man can go into a store for a screwdriver and actually come out with just a screwdriver. How do they do that? Anyway ...I really hope there is a dress for me somewhere in the mall and that I love it and that I find it early. Oh please, oh please, oh please ...let it be so. :)
Okay ...WHY did I scream?. Shriek in mortal embarrASSment actually.
Younger son's friend is home on leave and I figured son was out for the night. I have this habit of not closing the bathroom door if I am home alone or it's just Mr SeaSpray. So I was in there ...tinkling away ...whizzie winkle waterfalls actually when all of a sudden I realized son and friend were coming in and were about a foot from the bathroom door and I shrieked and then in high pitch , another shriek and I exclaimed, "Oh NO! I'm tinkling and your out there and I didn't shut the door! I CAN'T BELIEVE I did this! And at some point during all of that, I had also SLAMMED the bathroom door shut.
They were just busting out laughing ...BWAHAHAHAHAHA! KIND OF LAUGHING and I was inside mortified ...not wanting to come out. So ...I took a shower.
It's not the end of the world, but you really don't want your son's friend hearing you and almost seeing you go to the bathroom. I don't anyway.
They teased me anyway. It's funny. If you heard it ...you'd ve been laughing with them. I don't mean if you heard the tinkling whizzie winkle waterfalls as I'm sure they sound like anyone else's ..but all the commotion with just me reacting as I did.
The thing is ...they were busy talking when they walked in and had I just shut the door quietly ...they wouldn't have noticed at all.
Which brings me to the next part of this post.
What kind of person are you?
Do you leave the bathroom door open ...or close the door if no one is home?
I always leave it open and Mr SeaSpray always closes it. Well ...I wouldn't know what he does when I'm not home, but I bet he does because he always closes the door ..even if it's just me here. He grew up with a lot of girls. I was an only child. That may make a difference.
Or I just like living on the edge ...tempting fate and all that. :)
Anyway, years ago, I saw an article in Psychology Today magazine about this topic. It said something about your personality type, based on what you did with the bathroom door.
But, I don't remember what it said. I did try to google info and still didn't find anything on the topic. I know ...with our world in crisis ...I just want to know what it means if you leave the door open or closed.
Well ...now I'm going to tinkle (TMI?) with the door open and then time-to-go-clothes-shopping.
I think it will go well. I also hate escalators, but that is another post. Ties into the one phobia I have ...but that is also another another post.
GOSH! Can I procrastinate or what?
I am very much looking forward to this family wedding. Candlelight service at the country club - reception to follow. Something HAPPY to celebrate. And I have to say ...the bride is going to be fairy tale BEAUTIFUL.
