I hope so .... and look ... you're still here now, reading this bit so maybe you will hang around after all. Despite the less than inviting circumstances.
I'm all of a sudden thinking that, after last week's 'Overheard' post - which also featured toilet-themed humour - you're going to get the wrong idea about me. But you know how I'm driven to draw connections between things and sadly, that involves recognising how often I've taken photos in or made note of things I've seen / heard in toilets .
[I am however, resisting the temptation to analyse any of it and reckon we'd both be better off if you do likewise].
Anyway .... here's a quick re-cap of my bathroom escapades:
First there was this layout about a teeny, tiny toilet at work:
[There's a larger image and more details - should you wish for more! - here].
Then there was this sign in the toilets of an antiques fair:I remember that, while taking this photo, I had to cough to cover the sound the camera makes si that noone knew what I was up to! Although the fact that I'm now confessing it all to you kind of defeats that level of cover-up doesn't it?
Then finally here's the reason for this post, here's what I saw in a public toilet today which I couldn't wait to share with you:
I know the photo's not ideal, but it was taken on my phone in something of a hurry. No one wants to be caught taking photos in a public bathroom do they?
In case you can't make it out - that's the mathematic symbol π - as in Pi. So it says:
"I like Pi"
...and it made me smile.
I like to think it was written by really happy mathematician who really wanted to share:
- her love of the geometry of circles;
- her love of pastry-based foodstuffs and
- her capacity to invent corny puns,
... all by pencilling this little message for whomsoever used the facilites after her to enjoy.
In fact, I think it's just the kind of perfect high-brow graffitti you should expect to see on the wall of a university library toilet!
I know that we've now reached the point in a blog post where I'm meant to hand the topic over to my ask readers and ask you to share any similar experiences you may have had.
But, quite frankly, I'm afraid to ask .....
