We're finally settled so I'll blog regularly now. :) We've done a lot of traveling over the last week and a half. The one thing every trip we've ever taken has in common is this: Public bathrooms. There is more than one thing that equates to its significance in regards to suckiness. (Spell check informs me that "suckiness" is not a word, but if it were I imagine that this would be the correct spelling.)
One: They're usually disgusting. That's a given and we probably don't need to spend much time on it, but let's do it anyway. The floors are always yucky and IF they are ever "cleaned", it's with the toilet paper that gets dropped around the rim of the toilet. The toilets smell and have stains from every bodily fluid one can produce. The counters are covered in soap, water, and paper towels, and the mirrors look like they were cleaned with hard water.

Two: The appliances. The sinks, in particular. They're either rusty and hard to turn on, or it's a race to getting your hands lathered and rinsed in the 3-4 seconds it lasts.
Three: I used to always check that there was toilet paper in the stall before actually selecting it, but lately I've gotten out of the habit. And SO! After I use the baño, I turn to reach for the toilet paper and feel a sudden sense of panic as I silently pray that I won't be disappointed. Usually my prayer is answered. Usually.
Public bathrooms suck. But travelling is awesome and I'm so glad we're finally at our final destination!!!
