Feel Me Up: Letting it all hang out. Whoopsi.

Good Friday, friends. Thanks for all the input re: yesterday's post. It's good to know there's peeps in the same boat, and we all experience the same doubts. For the record, friends, Candyland doesn't know how to quit. I'm way too OCD to let go of something I've started. Especially if I'm sort of in love with it. Hence the hubs, the offspring, NM, and pretty much everything I touch.

Which is why we're going for a quicky today. I've gots me some work to do. Wash your hands with the new caramel apple soap I bought. It makes me want to eat my hands. Mmm.

Random Fact: Word of advice...don't use the bathroom with the door open, even if you think no one is home and/or no one can see you. This is nothing but problems.

Random Fact: I ordered the most amazing cinnamon French toast from Cracker Barrel, but couldn't finish so I got a box. It's possible when I got out of the car, in the rain, said French toast fell from the box and into the driveway...then went into the microwave and into my mouth. Just sayin'.

Okay, friends, tell me: Anyone ever walk in on you in the bathroom? Whoopsi.
Candyland. OUT.

Candy, I have come to adore you in a very short amount of time, but I will tell you this . . . I am never eating dinner at your house. ;o)

Of all the mishaps I've had in my life, I don't think being walked in on in the bathroom is one of them. Go figure.

Anne said...

Oh my goodness. You need a tee that says Candyland's five second rule. Haha I cam totally picture the whole scene too.

Hah! I had an embarrassing walk-in while I was in a bathroom at a restaurant. Um...it was a single bathroom and I was 7 months pregnant. Ugh.

Matthew Rush said...

I never quit, sometimes I just run out (of booze).

Patty Blount said...

EEP! YES!!!!

Twice.

You'd think I learn.

Years ago, I used to have a belly button ring. Son #2 walked into bathroom as I got out of shower. I always left the door open so I could keep an ear on things, you know? He was happily playing in his room. I'd put a gate across the stairs so knew he was safe.

I stepped out of the tub and he says, "Mama, dis?" - which was how he asked, "What is this?" I look down in his hand and he's holding the ring that had been in my belly button.

Ripped it right out.

Mishap #2 occurred last year. My husband works shifts and ends up sleeping all hours of the day. I forgot he brought home a friend of his who'd agreed to help him remodel our bathroom. I was "on the throne" when the friend walked in to start working!

Kill me now.

Kelly said...

I've quit closing the bathroom door, because someone always seems to wander in anyway!

Melissa Gill said...

Love the 5 second rule on French Toast. The microwave kills all the germs doesn't it?

Joanna St. James said...

if i close the door its bcos I dont want to embarrass any guests we might have other wise meh! I dont care, I should have been born in a nudist colony.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

So did the french toast still taste good?

I use the 5 sec rule . . . unless someone is watching. :)

aspiring_x said...

must have been some really good french toast!- well, before the drop that is.
i have a pizza curse- i always drop pizza on the floor at home. - always.
5 seconds and we're good... but is it five seconds each drop or cumulative between multiple drops???

Falen (Sarah Ahiers) said...

eh, i use the bathroom with the door open. The dogs just open it anyway. We're pretty good in our house about asking if anyone is in the bathroom before you enter, but if someone does get caught with their pants down we geneally all scream in an overdramatic fashion. It's fun.

Good random facts.

When we were in Tampa I saw my first streaker, a guy hit by a car and had a dude walk in on me in the ladies room. Yes, I checked. It was the ladies room. Tampa is one interesting place!

Creepy Query Girl said...

LOL candy. Between the nose noodles and the driveway french toast...you remind of that girl in 'Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist' who get drunk, drops her gum in a toilet and fishes it out and eats it. Yum!

Jessica Bell said...

Haha. Many times :o) Have a good weekend honey, and er ... try not to eat things off the road ;o)

Shannon O'Donnell said...

LOL. I have THREE children who don't understand that mothers are allowed a little privacy. Door open, door closed, doesn't matter. If I lock it, they stand outside and whine - and sometimes actually put their hands under the door - until I come out. Argh! :-)

Tina Lynn said...

There isn't a door on my master bathroom, so I actually have to lock the bedroom door. I don't always remember. Yeah...not cool.

Colene Murphy said...

My cats usually wont allow the bathroom door to be shut. Unless they are inside. Then it's all gravy. But cats in the bathroom don't help to cut down the problems.

Nice. French toast is indeed too delicious to waste. And crackerbarrel french toast...sin to waste. You made the right decision.

Linda G. said...

Yes. When we first moved into this house my youngest was a 2-year-old, and of course couldn't stand a closed door between us. So when I went to the bathroom, I left the door open, so he wouldn't stand there and bang on it the whole time.

Our downstairs powder room is right across from the door to the garage. One fine day, as I sat there on the throne, the door from the garage opened and the 7-year-old from across the street walked right in without knocking. Ack! I couldn't just close the bathroom door, because my 2-year-old was making a beeline for the great outdoors. I had to yank my jeans up--fast--and chase him outside. Fun stuff.

I used to work with a guy who routinely just left the door to the bathroom open when he was using it. I don't know why, but he was legit OCD, so maybe that had something to do with it in some way. Now that I think of it, he had a germ thing and when he was using the bathroom, the door was always open and the lights were always off. Maybe he just didn't want to touch the door handle and light switch. I dunno.

It was not unusual to walk into the kennel of an afternoon to grab one random object, glance to your left, and see him standing there, holding his wanger, just like it's nothing.

I was never quite sure how to react.

Apparently, for him, going to the bathroom with the door closed presented more problems than going to the bathroom while leaving the door wide open.

Lisa Potts said...

My dog has an annoying habit of joining everyone in the bathroom if they don't completely close the door. Did I mention she's a crotch sniffer?

Lenny Lee* said...

hi miss candace! wow i bet that french toast was pretty good. some dirt is good for you. ha ha. for that bathroom stuff. when you got 4 brothers and one sister for sure youre gonna get walked in on. ack!
...hugs from lenny
ps home your wrists feeling lots better

KarenG said...

I grew up in a family of girls and we NEVER shut the bathroom door. We liked to keep talking while doing our business. So when I'm home alone I don't shut the door, to bring back those childhood feelings. Weird huh?

Nicole Zoltack said...

As long as the french toast still tasted delicious, then it's all good. :)

Lola Sharp said...

Well, I don't eat floor/road food, but I don't judge anyone who does. And, I certainly appreciate good food enough to understand why you made the call.

As for the bathroom sitch, dude, I have a teen daughter and a husband...they've seen all I have. We have a pretty relaxed bathroom etiquette. Plus we have dogs and a cat that insist on being everywhere one of us goes.
If someone is over, we shut doors...other than that, hey, it's fair game.

Happy weekend! :)
Love,
Lola

Abby Minard said...

Haha, at least you didn't forget said french toast at the place like I usually do! Sitting in the box, on the table..sigh. Oh we're bad about going potty with the door open in our house..sometimes we have guests over and I kinda forget they're guests and kinda forget to close the door. Whoops.

Vicki Rocho said...

Next time I'm near a Cracker Barrel, I'm ordering French Toast, cuz I gotta know if I'd be willing to pick it up off the driveway too...

Jen Daiker said...

There is no way I will fault you for eating said french toast. Breakfast food is nothing to mess with, especially when purchased at Cracker Barrel!

I've missed you! Ahh, it feels so good to be back on your blog! It's been to long *slightly ashamed* and I'm glad to (sort-of) be getting back into the swing of things again!

As a firm believer in closed, & often locked, bathroom doors, I definitely agree w/ you.
