crazy bathroom decisions

Tim used this phrase at church yesterday, and I just couldn't let it go without a blog post.

First of all, SO true! Most, if not all of my crazy decisions are made in bathrooms. It is my thinking place. My quiet place. My happy place. Where I can wash my hands and hide in small cubicles.

Secondly, I just love the concept that decisions made in bathrooms are, by default, crazy. There is just something that happens to your head when you are in the bathroom...logic leaves and passionate insanity takes over. Because the world seems smaller and things make more sense. You get away from logic and into your head.

Finally, I like the idea that decisions have genres. You know: business decisions, spontaneous decisions, decisions that require lists, and crazy bathroom decisions.

What other genres of decisions are there?

What crazy bathroom decisions have you made lately?

professional boundaries


i saw a guy in the supermarket.
he looked like someone
i used to know.
it might have been him.
but if it was, he looks different from how he used to be.
he looked at me
like maybe he knew me
but should not (would not)
acknowledge it.
Professional boundaries.

it was just a glance
but if it was him, it was more than a glance.
i felt him look

i don't think he would have seen much.
- though all of a sudden i became very self conscious of my food.
(suck in your stomach.
try to look normal.)

(but not too normal.)
i don't want him to think i'm 'fine'
i want him to notice me.

by now i am in the bakery section.
better not look interested - he may come back
and then what would he think?
"oh look. she eats bread."
how mortifying.
