brain break

I have been working in the art building for over 8 hours. my brain is about to explode.
Therefore, I am taking an intermission from my work in order to tell you about a revelation I had in the shower a few days ago.

Shower thoughts:
People who use the bathrooms in dorms usually do so according to their class. They don't know this, but I do. And anyone could see that it was true if they just watched.

The Breakdown:

Freshmen- The public bathroom is a new place ready to be explored by the curious freshman. She walks in and covers the toilet with toilet paper in order to be clean. She then uses the rest room and washers her hands like a good girl. She takes all of her clothes in to the bathroom when she takes a shower so she won't have to walk out in a bathrobe... or heaven forbid, a towel! She doesn't wear flip flops to the shower either. Her innocent little mind fails to understand that the bathroom rarely gets cleaned, and there are many undiscovered diseases lurking on the cold tiled floor.

Sophomore- Adjusting to the bathroom by now, she stops covering the toilet with toilet paper because it takes too long, and that was a stupid idea anyways. She still takes her clothes with her into the bathroom so no one will see her scantily clad. she notices other girls wearing flip flops and takes in into consideration.

Junior- with little time to even take a shower or use the bathroom, she never covers the toilet, and rarely washes her hands. she stops taking clothes into the bathroom because that is too much of a hassle. She does however cover herself modestly with a bathrobe when finished. When throwing trash away, she never aims for the garbage can but carelessly tosses the trash in the cans general direction. Who wants to pick up that trash so far down on the ground anyways?

Senior- Flip Flops are a must in the bathroom, and taking your clothes in there to change is not a good idea...they get wet and fall on the floor. They use a simple towel to dry and cover themselves. She begins to realize how stupid it was to miss the trash can and not wash hands, so she picks up the habit again. She never uses the first stall since that is where the freshmen opt to go and usually get pee...or other things on the seat. 4th and 5th stall are ideal.

*Please note that this is just a generalization.

I found this stupid thing on facebook this morning and was amused slightly by the questions. So, instead of posting it on facebook for everyone to see, I figured I would show just my family (or sarah and summer since they are the only one who read this)

♥What are your middle names?Ashley and Joseph
♥ How long have you been together? like together as in in the same place? because that would be something like a math problem, it would be like...2.5 day x some amount of weeks. But dating would be 11 months.
♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? 4 months
♥ Who asked who out? he did... what kind of girl would do the asking? and it wasn't "asking out", that has to be the stupidest (is that a word) question. He stated that he wanted to pursue a deeper relationship...or something.
♥ Who's siblings do you see the most? mine
♥ Do you have any children together? minihorse, and it's partial custody because he lives at Joe's.
♥ What about pets?see above
♥ Did you go to the same school?no, but Joe probably wishes he went to such a great school like Montevallo.

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? chick-fil-a, fishtales

♥ Who has the worst temper? neither of us has a bad temper.
♥ Who does the cooking?he likes to think he does...
♥ Who is more social? about the same, but it depends on the place.

♥ Who hogs the bed? I wouldn't know... but in 87 days I will!!!! what what!
♥ Who wakes up earlier? a long shot.
♥ Where was your first date? to olive garden.
♥ Who has the bigger family? what does that matter?
♥ Do you get flowers often? Yes
♥ How long did it take to get serious?we are both rather serious people. (stupid question...)
♥ Who eats more? I think I do.
♥ Who sings better? maybe me, but Joe makes up way funny songs.
♥ Who does the laundry? I'm guessing if we did it together I would do it...but I don't know.
♥ Who’s better with the computer?uhhh
♥ Who drives when you are together? He default.
♥ Who chooses where you go to dinner? usually me, because I make up my mind quickly :0)
♥ Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong? It's usually at the same time, but he is better at it than I am.
♥ Who wears the pants in the relationship? I don't know about everyone else, but I enjoy wearing pants all the time... in about 87 days though, neither of us will be bearing pants ;)
