Potty mouth.

Dear Emi:

You might think this is not a subject for mixed company, and it probably isn't, but do you chat through the door when you or someone in your home is in the bathroom? I happen to do this often, but my boyfriend definitely doesn't and, well, he even gets a little mad that I'm still trying even though he pretends like I'm not talking when I do so. Just a moment ago he ignored a WHOLE conversation about the economy. I happen to know he heard me. He calls it "his 'me' time". Personally, I think it's just a door. And I'm all about efficient use of time.


From New York,

well, let me put it this way, I think I've only locked the door to the bathroom 3 or 4 times through the 9 years we've been together. And I only did that to make it clear that I was really pissed at him.

the rest of the time, I talk.
He doesn't but doesn't mind my talking.

he affectionately calls me the kitchen radio.
it's often on, you don't pay much attention to it, but you don't turn it off either.

i think mark feels the same way about me, but without the affection. and i never lock, and would never shut the door, were it not for SOMEONE else's sensitive nature, not to mention living with a three-year old. what's the point of pretending to have privacy?

Next time you should talk about something really exciting to him (I'm assuming that promises of something happening in the bedroom would be best). When he comes out, act like it never happened - since a conversation had between the bathroom door doesn't exist.

BTW, at least the door is shut. I can't think of the last time I shut the bathroom door unless guests are over.

P.S. I'm really enjoying your blog!
