uh oh

May 9, 2012

I’m a little upset this morning. I’m just going to get this out there:

I sat on the toilet seat, and it broke.

Okay, it feels good to get that off my, er, chest.


yes, that’s a crack (ha)

I was just sitting there, minding my own business. I shifted a bit. And a crack like the sound of doom reverberated throughout the bathroom the way only sounds in a bathroom can. It was like a sonic boom.

Look, Strava doesn’t lie. I’ve been riding this year at roughly 5 times the quantity I was last year.

The scale doesn’t lie. I can now button the top button on my pants.

And yet.

in case you were wondering, yes, the crack goes all the way through

I will now buy a microwave large enough to fit me.

    Thanks for flushing before taking the pic. Wow. You are bigger boned than I thought for a guy with no butt.

      strava is the bomb. not so much for KOMs, but for PRs and segments. it’s like twitter for riding. i’m addicted.

        Heh heh heh…guess where I’ve been since I first made that post? I mean…the ONLY place I’ve been! Very cool. I’m loving the segment feature, as it calculates the grades of my climbs, which is something I love to know but am too lazy/inept to calculate manually. Thanks for the heads-up!! I learn so much here…for instance, don’t wiggle on the seat….

        Strava is a scourge. As if cyclists need one more thing to obsess over. It’s like introducing heroine addicts to crack cocaine. There be dragons.

    “I shifted a bit”. Oh. I read that differently the first time.

    I dont think the microwave is an effective way to lose that extra water weight. You just have to do it the old-fashioned wrestlers way – dehydration to the point of life-threatening fainting. then, get on the scales, prove you now weigh less, and dont get on them again for a long time. Perhaps dont get on a round seat for a long time either.

    Hahaha. I have trouble reading bathroom blog articles but this one was on point. I guess I have to ask, “what is the toilet seat made out of?”. The answer to this question is key for how I’m going to judge you.

    I never thought cracked toilet seats were a real thing; thanks for clearing that up. And then to add some real color to the topic, my brother John Jr. sent over a pic of his toilet seat with cracks on both sides all the way through! Hahaha. Too lazy to hit one button on Amazon for a new toilet seat and then have his kids install it.

    I just noticed this was posted in 2012. Haha. My previous comment makes no sense.
