Prompt: Favorite Room

Hands down, my favorite room is the bathroom. I frequently call mine the boardroom. Wanna take a bath?

At some point before I had children, I loved the lock on the bathroom door because it ensured solitude. In one house, I took the door off the hinges. The only purpose it served was to swing like a pendulum when the room was occupied for any activity the room fit. Fortunately, I am behind another one which locks.

The perfect bathroom for me looks a lot like a self-contained living space. Some of the requirements are:

  • Android device
  • Aromatherapy bath salts
  • Ashtray
  • Books
  • Bubbles
  • Candles (MMM leather)
  • Chaise
  • Fan
  • Fluffy towels
  • Furry blanket
  • Jetted tub
  • Handheld shower
  • Heat lamp
  • Laptop
  • Large coffee or bottle of wine
  • Mantra’s notebook
  • Mask
  • Massaging shower
  • Music
  • Pillows
  • Robe
  • Shower seat
  • Slippers
  • Tablet
  • Vanity

Alternatively, all the tech (except the music) could be replaced with someone to talk to me, some adult someone. A good bit of the time, the someone joining me in the bath is on my Android. When I mute the tele to warm the water, I can keep my friends from knowing they are in the tub with me. Those who know me best just ask if they are in the tub with me when they hear the echo off the tiles.

All this underwater time led my mother to wonder, as I often do about the mermaids I birthed, if I was the dirtiest or cleanest. Quite the conundrum.

  1. Okay, so here’s the deal… I’ll never be able to keep up with writing for each prompt, but, I’ll probably end up commenting on them anyway, so, that’ll have to do…

    That your favorite is the BR isn’t a surprise, though, I would have though an attendant might be added to the list for a touch of luxurious elegance… (and, company when nobody else is around.) (*wink*)

    Mine’s the kitchen… Food, companionship, conversation, family… to me, the kitchen is where things happen that mean the most. Food makes us happy, and so does sharing it with others, so, I tend to gravitate to the stove when I want to have a good time…. Well, unless one counts the computer…

    Good to see you back online…



    • I love the idea of an attendant. Since I consider company in the bath the norm, someone as a fixture is a bonus. 🙂 I love the kitchen. In the last year, I have grown to loathe the room on principle. The new house will feature the kitchen prominently as the heart of the home… not a closet tucked away from the living space. This place was designed by a bachelor, no question. xxx

  2. I’ll take the kitchen.
