I decided to start this blog because of a thought I had while on the toilet this afternoon.
How did people ever occupy themselves in the bathroom before smartphones?
The only reason this came to mind was because I realized how bored I was, just sitting, waiting <insert the rest of Jack Johnson’s lyrics> for my body to complete it’s daily afternoon ritual. Or, as I like to call it: my afternoon poo. Yup, that’s what I really call this ritual.
Really, am I so addicted to my technology that I have to bring it with me into one of the most disgusting and contaminated places to exist, the public restroom?
I was bored enough to think that in the future, I won’t forget my phone.
The next problem is, how do I sneak it into the bathroom? You know literally (read in the voice of Chris Trager) everyone (okay, not literally) is on their phone when they’re in the john. You can even see them with their lit up screens if you’re a creeper and look through the cracks of the door on a bathroom stall… Which I definitely do NOT do…
Anyway, I feel as though I should not be that dependent on my phone and yet at the same time, not embarrassed that I want to do a little social media catch up, or pinning, or even the occasional news headline surfing, while I’m on the pot. I mean in reality, it’s the best way to multi-task and in our fast-paced 21st century world, every moment is precious and if you can shoot out a quick email while you’re shooting out a quick deuce. why not?
