So Many Butts

It’s Friday and I’m feelin’ sassy. So I thought I’d share my butt story with you!

We live in a very rural area. As in, the town two miles down the road has 300 people in it. If I drive 10 minutes, I get to a town of 5000. Yeah, I’m in the middle of nowhere.

And a “feature” of living in such a rural area is that everyone knows everyone. Now, this can be good or bad. And it could clearly lead to a post titled “So Many Butts”; however, that’s just a little background info and not a reflection of my neighbors. I’m just trying to say that there is different etiquette in such a small-town area.

One thing that appears to be acceptable is to drop by the house you grew up at at any random time. So far, two people who used to live in our 100+ year old farmhouse have stopped by. Being the social, southern-hospitality gal I am, I invited them in and gave them the grand tour so that they could pass judgment see how well we’re taking care of things.

Now, as I was giving the tour to one of them, we went by the (only) bathroom in the house. He stopped and was talking how it still looked exactly the way it did when he remodeled it 30 years ago. (Some day I’ll show you pics – let’s just say it’s ready for an update!)

Then he walks over to the toilet and says “Wow, this is the same toilet I put in! Imagine how many butts have been on it!”

And I made some random “Oh, how interesting” comment because, really, what can you say to that?

So many butts….

    To butt or not to butt that is the question………………….

    I’m wondering how many butts sat on our toilet and felt like they needed a bar to hold onto because it’s totally tipped! Ready for a remodel indeed.
    PS-Every wonder why you have a front door? I do. Everyone seems to show up at the back one.

      A tipping toilet – kinda like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, huh? :) As far as front doors, well, our house has 3 front doors and 2 back doors. A new friend came over a few weeks ago and didn’t know which door to knock on. Guess we’re set for emergency exits!
