Warm bums on hot seats

February 18, 2008

Basil Fawlty: Madam, I don’t mean to pry, but do you by any chance have a hearing aid?
Mrs Richards: A what?
Basil Fawlty: A HEARING AID.
Mrs Richards: Yes, of course. […] I haven’t got it switched on at the moment.
Basil Fawlty: Why not?
Mrs Richards: The battery runs down.

We have a heated toilet seat. What an indulgent luxury, you’re thinking. Well it would be if we ever switched it on. Which we don’t. “Because it uses too much electricity”.

But there are only so many shocks the system can take. There’s been a revolution. I plugged it in.

I just spent enough time in there to read three chapters. I think I might have burned myself.

    Question (skip) – does your bog have one of those uniquely strange contraptions over ther cistern which resembles a mini-like-italian-fountain?

    that question is for the viewers at home who possibly have not run across a Japanese Home Toilet

    thank you

    Yes, it does. Tastefully draped with plastic plant and plastic rocks, for that essential “Indoor mini-pool on the back of your toilet” look.

    At least you have a seat, and not a hole in the floor that disappears into a dark pit, full of lost slippers and sh## 🙂
