Holidays - The consequences

Actually, after a week of tagines, salads and cous cous, happy to report that motions are regular and stools are of an agreeable consistency.

I thank you.


  1. The classic water closet makes people sit with the wrong posture to poo properly.

    What you really need to do is squat like the French. Get those knees up by yer ears and it'll all be over in a jiffy...

  2. My legs are a bit skinnier than that, I don't put my feet up, and I'm usually reading Moby Dick, but otherwise a it's a good likeness.

    See you later.

  3. Yes! I've thought about this, Matthew. In the future I see toilets that are reclined at a 45 degree angle (the seat bit), and with leg rests high up. It would be like being in a dentist's chair but with raised feet. As things get tough you could ratchet up your legs that bit higher, effectively squatting but in reverse (more relaxing?).

    The hole would go straight downwards still.

    It could really feel good.
