    I don't know why the random slashes.

    When the ILs were here Sunday, sFIL picked up a newspaper and wandered into the bathroom.  It seemed overly familiar to me and cleaning the bathrooms this morning reminded me of it.

    It was about the only time he was awake the whole visit.

    I don't think it's vile, but I don't do it.  My father does.  Like it's his job.  Neither H nor I do.  I don't think you should be in the bathroom long enough to read.  JMO.

    I voted for the last one. I don't think it's vile I'm just usually not in there long enough to read a whole page, so it seems silly to me.

    My mom keeps little books of quotes and comics in her bathrooms.  I always go to the Calvin and Hobbes bathroom when I'm there even though it's the furthest away.

    FTR, H will spend 2 hours in the bathroom with a book/DS/magazine. I have to believe not all of that is poop time.

    2 HOURS?!?!  Well, I guess you can save money on furniture since he doesn't have a need to sit anywhere else.

    Yeah, he'd probably sit in there longer but I get annoyed at that point and make him get out. We only have 1 bathroom, after all.

    We were at a restaurant a few weeks ago for breakfast.  There was a girl that looked about 15 or 16 with her family at the table next to us.  Her parents were reading a newspaper.  She asked for a section and then got up and took it to the bathroom with her.  I thought that was weird, especially for a teenage girl.

    Related question:

    If you are going to read while you poop for 2 hrs, do you flush after the poop and sit back down or leave it in the bowl while you read?

    Butter, please be asking the hubs.

    Usually, I bring something in, but I'm typically not in there long enough to really do much reading, so it's silly.

    I will occasionally read a short magazine article or flip through a catalog.   Mostly I do a crossword puzzle or a sudoku puzzle or play on my ipod - - but that's more because I am relishing the alone time.    Alone time is rare and precious.
    DH is in there for at least a good 20 minutes, if not 40 minutes reading a book.   I tell him he's not healthy if it takes that long to get the poop out of you.
    I think the difference is, in general, as women we're busy multitasking and doing "it all" that we wait until the last possible moment to go poop - which means it's ready to come out and it comes out quickly.    Guys have the luxury of being able to take that much time to do something.   And the closest a guy gets to multitasking is reading while pooping so they think they've accomplished something.

    I must be an extraordinarily fast pooper, because I am never in there long enough to ready anything. I poo as fast as I pee. As far as I know, H doesn't read when he poos, but it is somewhat of a procedure - to me at least.
