What I Learned in the Bathroom


“Put the damn toilet seat down,” I expressed in frustration.

I find myself repeating this over and over while I’m with my Love.  I mean what girl hasn’t had to say that to their SO? Whether we’re at our family homes, or a hotel, sharing a toilet with him can be irritating.

But today, when I went to the bathroom, I realized something…

While my Love is home, he is a typical guy and leaves the toilet set up every single time he uses it.  Now, I know and understand that he is used to living on a ship where he doesn’t have to worry about such trivial things.  But (as a typical girl), it still drives me insane to have to put the seat back down before I can use it.

However, today was different.  I didn’t have to remind him to put the seat down, because it was already done.  In fact, it hadn’t even been put up in the first place.  As much as I’d love to say that it was because I had finally “trained” him to do it, that’s not the case.

Instead, it was because he’s gone.

So today I realized that although it’s a pain, having to remind him, means I have someone to remind.  It means that he’s home.  It’s something so little, that I completely took for granted, but made me miss him so much.

So this morning, in the bathroom I broke down.  Hard.  I realized that I would take a left-up-toilet-seat any day as long as that meant he was home, or we were together anywhere.
