Warning: This is a Potty Post

For those of you who work in an office, I wonder if you've encountered the same phenomenon I have ... I tend to be in the bathroom at the same time as the same coworker ... frequently.

I first noticed this when I worked at BYU. More often than not, I would walk into the rest room and another female professor there. The thing is that professor was about 70 years old. So, I came to the conclusion that I must have the bladder of, well, you know. I did make myself feel better by figuring out that maybe I only saw her on half of her visits to the restroom!

Well, I've started to see this pattern emerge at my current work place. I have ended up in the restroom with the same coworker up to 3 times in one day. It even got to be so obvious that I had to say something to her. She just laughed.

And, what else is there to do ... but laugh and use the restroom.

A Well-Written Love Letter

Do you remember writing letters to people? Real letters? Well, I still love when I get a real letter in the mail. And, a raise in postage or not, there is something to be said for someone sitting down to write a letter and then get it to a post office.

I read an article today about the writing of love letters. This may just be the uber-romantic in me, but I think there is something wonderful about receiving a love letter. And, I know that I have a couple of letters that I keep with me--to pull out and enjoy over and over.

I can't help but think of the Shakespearean sonnet that talks about how his love would endure because it was captured in words.

So, enjoy the article and then write your love.

A Rose for Emily?

I would suggest doing 2 things.

1. If you've never read Falkner's "A Rose of Emily," do it. If you've already read it, then go straight to #2.

2. Read this article.
