Reading on the 'John'

Good morning everyone,

It looks like today is going to be everything they promised in terms of the weather. It's supposed to be sunny and warm, with a high of 19C. Make sure you enjoy it, because tomorrow and Saturday are both looking at a 70% chance of rain. Sunday and Monday are looking nice though-both days will be sunny with highs around 18C.

Are you one of those people who reads while sitting on the toilet? Or do you know someone who is? I'm not. And I have a hard time understanding people who are.

It seems like the most common reason is that it is the one place in the house where privacy is respected, so some people will use the toilet as a place to escape from the noise and distractions of the other people in the house. You won't catch me doing that-I like to get in there, get my business done and get the heck out. And I was worried that I was alone, but apparently there are lots of people like me who don't like spending any more time on the toilet than they have to.

But I won't judge people-what you do in the privacy of your own home is your choice. However, I couldn't believe the other day when I was at a public toilet (going #1 or 'small' as you say in Japan) and I heard the sound of someone rustling a newspaper in the toilet. What's up with that?! I couldn't believe my ears. Why in the world would you want to go to a public toilet and read the newspaper? Is it because they didn't have enough money for a coffee? Or the toilet there is nicer than the one at their house? Can their home-life really be so bad that they would rather grab a newspaper and head to the nearest mall or shopping centre to get away from it?

I don't know about you, but it made me feel sorry for the guy. I could never imagine relaxing in a toilet in public. I only ever go there as a last resort. But you know what they say...different strokes for different folks.

Have a great day!
