Wishing on a star

I wish I had my own bathroom.

Hugh Hefner thinks I share a bathroom with too many girls.

The entire house hold uses our bathroom as the go to place for teeth brushing, hair coming and various other beauty regimen to which I remain ignorant to. There are 3 other full baths at their disposal but they choose to walk in on me when I am less than fully clothed.
Without fail every time I step into the shower at least 2 people stop by to find something or do their hair or in Janie's case just stop in to say "hey." Luckily for me I had a builder that built a shower in such a way that when you are au natural you can not be seen by others in the room.

In this home I have been able to separate my garage and my office very well. The only junk in my garage is my junk and the only way to get into my garage is thru the office. Ingenious if I do say so myself.
My next house is going to have a boys only locker room so that I won't have to clean toothpaste out of my sink before I shave. I won't have to move hair product and other goo gaws off of my side of the counter. Nobody will steal my towel. My shower drain won't clog up with long hair. There will only be 1 shampoo in the shower, no conditioner. I will still have a loofah but it won't be pink, nobody is saying that a man can't ex foliate. I will add a stackable washer and dryer for convenience and maybe a hidden door to the office or garage, the other man spaces.

The problem is that by the time I am ready for another house nearly all these problems will be gone. Until then I will just keep wishing and keep my towel tightly wrapped.

I can only imagine the difficulties of being the only male, living with six females. It sounds totally frustrating.

Loved this post! It's just your lot in life to be surrounded by girls: growing up with eight sisters, & now having a wife + 5 daughters. Sigh.

I once heard of this invention that sounded really cool. You might want to look into it. It is called a lock, I think. hmmm...

Because I have three boys...My man bath will include a stand-up stall, wall to wall tile, and a high pressure hose so that cleaning up just requires a good spray down. Totally feel your product and privacy pain dude.

I thought you'd be well used to this life since you grew up with so many sisters. I laughed the whole way through reading about your "man bath".

This is my favorite post so far. I'm laughing out loud - such a great picture of what it means to be the lone man among 6 girls...

How sad that your girls aren't wanting to fix your hair, pull your whiskers, etc. - but that will come - at least it did for me. But I at least had three boys with whom I could occasionally escape!
