I created this bathroom cross stitch in a bid to indirectly put things into perspective about going to the toilet. The idea for this cross stitch came from hearing tall tales of people’s, how can I say, nervous dispositions. People holding it all day in work and waiting until they got home to do it. Cutting dates short to go home to use their own loo. Even once, a friend during their primary school trip to France held it for 5 days until they got home. FIVE DAYS. It’s ridiculous! Everyone does it! And they’ve been doing it since forever.
I like to think I’ve broached the subject in an aesthetically pleasing way. This simple and straight forward cross stitch has been hanging in our bathroom for five months now and any guest that visits always comments on it. Not necessarily directly. I’ll hear them laughing in the bathroom or they’ll simply say “It’s true. Everyone does it“. The alternative is plain ridiculous. It’s simple. If you need to go, GO!
If my silly cross stitch helps even just one person out there, I’ll feel like my blog post has been justified. Just remember, everybody does it. Even Katy Perry poops.
I love this!! And I love how eloquently you broached the subject matter – it's hilarious and HUMAN and funny and just rather wonderful. *sings* Everybody poops…sometimes… xxx
Hahahah, thank you Kimberly! A lot of thought and effort went into how to phrase my blog post so as to not sound too, how can I say, dirty poopy potty talk. It's a thing everyone does. And a thing people need to get over. Everybody poooooops ……. Sometimes. xx
Haha you made me laugh Alex, your cross stitch is brilliant!
Ahhhh so glad you like it Ketty! I wasn't sure if it was a bit too risque 😀 xx
Brilliant! Love the way you've written this, and of course I am a huge fan of the cross stitch!! Great pictures and styling too – those delicate pink roses really set everything off beautifully.
I specifically grabbed some pretty pink roses to offset the poop-related cross stitch. Also, a slight nod to OutKast's Roses? Which is now stuck in my head, hahahaha!
I love you. Also, Chris Pratt, not only poops, but sends photos of said poop to his co-stars. Fact.
BAHAHAHAHHAH WHAAAAT! That is hilarious. I did not know that. This is good to know. I think.
It is essential information.
