crimes against humanity 2

While at the Forum on Children and Literature today, Random Guy preceded me into the necessary room. Talking on his cell phone. Did he pause in the conversation while facing the urinal? Of course not.

It reminded me of one of my old roommates who, on a regular basis, would talk to his girlfriend/fiancee while taking care of business.

Just because you can take a phone in the bathroom doesn't mean you should.

What would you say if I told you that I'm writing this comment while sitting on the pot?

Master Fob said...

I'm not--I don't have a laptop and that would be pretty darn complicated with a desktop--but I'm just wondering what you would say.

FoxyJ said...

Um, I don't even want to think about how that is possible to do. And what happens if you drop your phone??

Bluetooth will be the death of politeness and privacy.

I was only opening a jar of pickles.

And yes, I do eat a lot of pickles.

The Old English monk-type word for the bathroom was necessarium.

One day I was in the “business” room and all of a sudden I hear light tapping sounds. I then realize someone is typing in the stall next to me. I’m glad I have my own bathroom these days.

In this comment I will not admonish you for not writing the next entry of your alphabiography. Instead, I will admonish you for not opening up a vote on whether your official name should be Edgy Killer Bunny or just Edgy, as you promised you would. I mean, c'mon, if I can let my blog readers vote on the legal name of my child then you can certainly let the masses choose your blogonym for you.

I don't see why we need to choose. My name is ambiguous. Why should we have to decide if Edgy is his full name or short for Edgy Killer Bunny. Which is a great name, by the way.

If the former though, will you be getting a new avatar?

By the way, was I the first to call you simply "Edgy"?
