Basic Instinct#2: Putting the Toilet Seat Down


It began with an act of stupendous revelation in 1997.

I was in my home country of Ghana for the first time-ever with my parents, listening to the radio, and wondering about the stark differences between this rather-rustic part of the country (outside the capital by two hours) and the Belgian suburbia. I can tell you the differences were then very stark!

There was this programme on the state-ownedGhana Broadcasting Corporation "health section" about keeping the home safe,and that's where it struck me.

Like a voice from up-on-high, it was slowly inculcated into me by the voice on the radio that failing to put the toilet seat down was tantamount to having millions of germs crawling throughout your home.

Ick!

From that time on--and it's been a good 9 years now--I have NEVER failed to put the toilet seat down at home.

I still lack discipline on other things, but this I can do well!;-))

So tumultuous is this phenomena, it appears, that there are many sites dedicated to helping men put it down, so-to-speak;-). Read one here, entitled How to Get the Men in Your Household to Put the Toilet Seat Down ...

One of the quirks of the new house (did you know I'm buying a house, moving tomorrow?) is that the toilet pipe blocks the toilet seat somehow and makes it virtually impossible to keep the seat up. I'm with you on the virtues of keeping the seat down, but... the opposite also has some practical applications.

(funny post, Mr. Bensah!)

sisoula--hope you have a good move! wow...did the FBI get in touch with you eventually;-))

btw, I have always wanted to ask you about your eml. Mine is ekbensah at yahoo.co.uk. I would appreciate getting an eml so that I can occasionally correspond. Is that ok?

I trust all will go well!
