Ruth's Wayside



The bathroom may not be a topic may people choose to write about, But…not everyone has my bathroom.

There was a game going around on Facebook where someone gave you a number and you were supposed to write down that many things that people don’t know about you. I’m a fairly open book and don’t have any deep dark secrets. I couldn’t think of ONE thing that people didn’t already know about me let alone nine. So, I turned the game around and had people tell me things that maybe not everyone knew about me. They came up with a couple of good ones. Nothing overly revealing. Except for…”You have a public bathroom in your house.”
Yup, apparently my bathroom is the place to see. Believe it or not, people stop by to my house just to use my bathroom. Is my bathroom uber fancy? No. Is it spotless? Most definitely not. Why do people stop just to use my bathroom?
When you gotta go, you gotta go…I guess.
But then there was the friend who stopped so she could take a shower. It was the middle of the day and she was out shopping around and felt the need for a shower because she felt hot. I kid you not.
My sister-in-law thought this was so funny that she made me a plaque. "Ruth's Wayside." My daughter said I couldn't put it on the front door to the house people would probably take it literally. So on the bathroom door it hangs.
Don’t laugh. You people know exactly who you are. I could name names but I won’t. I will spare all of you the embarrassment.
You just can't make this stuff up!
