Working weekends for a CBS station during football season rocks! Often, we don't have our first show until 10p. What does that mean for us field crews? Well, for one it means our last show may not go on until midnight because of the game. But it also means---Dinner!

One of my favorite places to go is Boston Market. On the left is the BM we ate at in Margate, FL on Sunday. Why am I telling you all of this? Well, as it turns out, the most... blogable...thing of the day happened in this restaurant.

My reporter/husband came back from restroom, sat down and said "Ooookay. That was wierd.". Imagine walking into a restroom and finding the stall door wide open, with some guy sitting on the pot taking a bm (this time, bm does not stand for boston market). It made for great dinner conversation.

In keeping with the theme of this post I sought out a link to share with you on the history of toilet paper. I've looked it up before and it's really interesting, scary, funny, disgusting...etc In Rome I think it was, they actually used a public sponge on a stick dipped in salt water. In India they used their left hand. While searching for the link I found the site you see on the right. Notice they say "great gifts for christmas and chanukah!". Can you imagine?? Which is more shocking: Finding some dude taking a bm with the stall wide open or opening your christmas or chanukah gift of toilet paper?

And which is worse: using a public sponge on a stick or having to tell people who ask what you do for a living that you are president of Toiletpaperworld.com.

Food for thought...

I read an article in a magazine recently about a couple of soldiers who's duty in Iraq was to guard Saddam Hussein. They told that even though he was provided with TP he still used his left hand and then just rinsed it off.

I just looked that up on google. It was in GQ magazine July '05 issue... so i guess there are worse things than not closing the stall door...

Wait. You actually looked up the history of toiler paper. BEFORE the BM incident? :-D

Too funny! You've really gotta get out more! :-)
