- Option one must be for Olympic gymnasts ... I mean who has that kind of balance and hamstring dexterity?
- Do you all stand up and face the bowl to flush the paper ... have I been doing it wrong all these years?
- What would the male toilet instructions look like, how would they explain the newspaper?

Late Sunday afternoon as I bid farewell to my parents I pondered … maybe the Congress had more of an affect on me than I thought … see what you think?

Office (noun): A place where business, clerical or professional activities are conducted. Generally found housing a desk, chair, computer, phone, at least one wonky stapler and a plethora of pens. Last week I stumbled across Office on Harrogate, definitely not your average office.
