OK, I’ll admit it. I was messing around with my phone in the bathroom. No, dear reader, nothing obscene. I was just sitting there with my Droid, and decided to take a photo of myself. I posted it on Facebook, basically because I could.
Anyway, it led to me to thinking that taking one’s smartphone into the bathroom, is probably more efficient and certainly tidier than the old way of having a magazine rack, which invariably became full of publications that you’d read several times.
This was because every time you sat down, you vowed that you’d have a clear out of the old magazines, and add some new ones, but by the time you got up and left, you’d forgotten all about the task again.
Having one’s smartphone in the restroom, means you get to read up-to-date news, or your email, or tweet, or, even, write blog posts like this one. Perhaps music or podcasts are your thing, or perhaps you like to take in a little YouTube or even TV viewing while doing the doo?
Oh, and come on, it’s the 21st century. I am aware that some folks just go in, do it, and get out, but it’s not exactly a secret that for some of us, a read is a must. I’ve taken something in the loo with me even since I was a young child, and I used to my mother mad because I’d lock the door and sit and read Denis The Menace in my weekly copy of the Beano.
Well do you? Are you an in-and-outer, or a reading lingerer. Let me know your thoughts.
