Too Much Skin in the Bathroom

"Are we heading the right way to the bathroom?" I asked.

"Yes, it's downstairs on the left."

OK. I walked into the bathroom and it was a sort of laundry room/ bathroom combo. A candle was lit. It was clean. They were expecting their guests to use this bathroom.

But guess what they left out? A big ol' stack of Playboys. Yep. Right across from the toilet on the dryer. I couldn't believe my eyes. They were stacked neatly and everything was dusted and clean around them. I thought maybe they were vintage. That would be kind of fun to see Playboys from the 50's. Nope. On the top, the most recent edition. Whoa!

Now, I am not one to really care if someone looks at Playboy. I worked at Waldenbooks in grad school. I saw a lot of pornography sold. Many were sold to people that seemed really normal and conservative looking. I don't want to get into a discussion about pornography. Not my thing. Hopefully not my husband's thing but apparently, our friend's thing.

We were at a clambake. They had about 30 people there. There were friends and relatives and WORK ASSOCIATES. They knew we were all coming. All of the lights were lit leading their guests to this bathroom. Why did they leave out their Playboys? Why did the wife let her husband leave out the Playboys? Just makes you wonder.

As my husband and I giggled our way out of the downstairs, we were both talking about how I had to write about this. If only I would have brought my camera to capture the whole picture. Well, not the whole picture.

You know you are a blogger when your husband is in on what you should blog about. LOL.

OMG - that's insane. Maybe someone brought it as a house warming gift to the hosts, or they have a teenager and mom found it in the backpack, or... oh man, you kind of hope they did it on purpose. Otherwise, if they didn't, you know she'll find it later and be completely MORTIFIED!

It was a STACK of Playboys. Couldn't have been a gift. There were probably 15.

They left them there on purpose so it really makes you wonder how peoples' minds work!

That's so funny. I wonder if they meant to leave them out...or just forgot at the last minute to put them away...or they're just very creative hosts who provide for all guests pleasure...hehe

I keep meaning to buy sexy panties (because I swear, I have none) to leave in people's bathrooms at parties. So when the party is over, they can find them and be shocked and have a good story to tell. I'm nutty like that.

Flea said...

Oh my word. Fer reals? WTH? Maybe you should ask the hostess what was up with that? I probably would have gone straight to her and asked if she knew it was there.

maybe he was proud he lusted after other women...gross.

Hmm. Can't speculate on that one. I once found a stack that presumably belonged to a relative. I was mortified. In fact, I can't even picture the rest of their house anymore except for that bathroom. We didn't visit them much, big surprise.

that is interesting!! i don't know what I would do in that situation, but blogging about it is definitely the way to go! thanks for giving me a laugh:)

She either meant to put them away, totally didn't realize they were there or her husband kept them there as a conversation piece (no pun intended) for the guests. Thank God you didn't touch them and ended up finding pages stuck together!!!!eeewwwwwww!!!!!!! ` kp
