Are they serious? I suppose someone, somewhere, would buy it.

DW still sometimes blushes when I see her undressed. This after 20 years.

Sharing a commode ain't gonna happen.

Nothing makes me want to grab my wife and rush her into the bedroom like hearing her eliminate bodily waste....

What I always found a bit over the boundary were the people who would wait to do their "business" until they got to work and then do it in a restroom with all sorts of other people present.

One of our former lawyers used to take the newpaper into the men's john every morning.

It beats working. By the way, was that billable time?

I confess that from time to time during my submarine sea-duty days I'd come home and announce to my spouse "Hey, honey, you'll never guess what we found in sanitary tank #2 today! Say, what's for dinner?"

Many of us in this part of the world wonder about what they teach as well, but since neither I nor anyone in my immediate* family has has of matriculated at Yale-on-the-Brazos, I can't help you.

You might check with W2R who, to my recollection, is the only poster on the forum who has admitted attending that particular institution.

*OK, a one of my great nephews did graduate from A&M last year. But he promised he'd never do it again.

Showering together was fun.

He liked to brush my hair.

Nice to have someone wash your back.

I have long had waist-length hair, we both liked having him carefully comb it out after shampooing.

Almost as good as a foot massage.

Waitaminnit, I thought she went to school with that nice Barrie Obama kid... was it before or after he graduated?

I think I know more Aggie jokes than lawyer jokes...

Hunh, I never thought of using waxing nostalgic-- I just use elastic bands.
