Within the first year of marriage, couples embark on an adventure, trying to meld each other’s habits into a new daily routine. I am sure, without a doubt, that one such habit centers around the toilet seat. Ok, admit it! Secretly, everyone of you reading this laughed because you know what I am referring to. Yup! You guessed it. Guys being guys leave the toilet seat up just because it’s a guy thing. Wives, on the other hand, are used to just being able to sit down. So imagine the shock and the screams that are emitted during that first year when the unsuspecting wife gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and her bottom goes for a unsuspecting swim. I, personally, lost track that first year. The response from said “guilty party” went a little like this-“You should have looked before you sat down!’ My response usually was “It’s the middle of the night. I’m half asleep and I should expect the seat should be right back where it normally belongs.”
Eventually over time, it gets better. He learns to put down the seat and you learn to check before you sit. Although it was never funny at the time it happened, it now makes me laugh.
