The Bathroom

Which room is the only room in your house where you are to yourself and no one will bother you? In my house, there is only one room. My children refer to it as dad's office. I have heard this place referred to as the temple of the porcelain goddess. I have spent countless hours in this room. Have you guessed what room it is?

My bathroom has to be one of the prettiest rooms in our house. The floor and the walls are of white tile, which are shiny and clean. There is a beautiful ocean wave design consisting of three different shades of blue. These waves go around on all four walls and are about a third of the way up the wall from the floor. In the waves, there are blue and yellow striped angelfish and numerous different seashells. There are two windows in the bathroom, both of which have dark blue shades. We have many little porcelain ships placed all over the shelves and a mirror that resembles the steering wheel of a sailboat.

The bathroom has fussboden heizung, a German word that translates to foot floor heater. A thermostat controls the heater. Therefore, in the winter, the room is always the right temperature and the floor is not cold. In the summer, it is always nice and cool due to the tiles, and I can open the windows and let in the breeze.

Sometimes I go in the bathroom and just sit there, and read a book or the paper. I know that no one will disturb me and that it will be quiet. My wife has found me many a morning sound asleep on the bathroom floor. I do this routine a lot in the winter when I get terrible back pains. The heated hard floor relaxes and sooths my back pains. I can sit in the shower with the hot water running for an hour or more, just to relax after a long hard day at work. On the other hand, I can soak in the tub after a good work out on the weekend. Sometimes, I practice giving classes in the mirror just to see what facial expressions I make while describing the subject matter. Here, I do not have to be afraid of how terrible my singing is because it is just the water and me.

I think the reason why I like this room because it makes me feel light. I get the sense that I am some place else. Sometimes, I feel like I am at the beach, while other times, I feel as though I am under the ocean with many fish and boats all around me. It may be the mere fact that I am all alone and that I am away from the sounds of everyday life.

Everyone in the house knows that they do not disturb dad when he is in the bathroom! I bet many of you have spent countless hours in yours. Therefore, now you know the location of my throne, the one place I call my own. Like I said before there are just so many things you can do while you are all alone in the bathroom. You can read, write, and sing, or just be alone. So the next time that you are in the bathroom remember what I have said, it might just be the one place you too can call your throne.
