Showering at a motel can be dangerous if the motel was once on the main road until the highway came through and now no one ever stops there plus the owner/manager is a murderous transvestite who keep his dead mother in the attic. Stay at a Best Western instead because all the have are bed bugs.

If you have children, keep the temperature of your hot water heater at 120 degrees, because the joy of raising children must be balanced with at least seven years of miserably tepid baths and showers.

Avoid keeping an unsecured throw rug on the floor beside the tub. If you must keep your roller skates there, be sure your proficiency is drive-in car-hop, roller derby queen or better.

For the very elderly, you should install a sturdy bar for them to hold onto when getting into or out of the tub alone. If one cannot be installed, then keep a watchful toddler in the tub at all times.

A seat in the shower can be very helpful to those who cannot stand for long periods of time or those of us who just want to be able to sit and hypnotize whoever is sitting on the toilet.

Poor lighting can be dangerous in a bathroom. Keep your bathroom well lit with a high-wattage bulb, or, if you are holding a rave in your dining room, a strobe light.

  1. The dangers of the bathroom are an indication of aging and encroaching feebleness. A young, sprite healthy sexy body sees no danger signs in a bathroom…so the bathroom is not changing,…you are.

      1. Interesting. Oddly enough, where the word “tonic” appears in my previous comment, I originally wrote “Geritol” but changed it because it doesn’t seem to have the same ‘influence’ it had in the ‘old days’ when it was known more for its alcoholic content than as a dietary supplement.

    1. You know, the one thing I wanted when my oldest was two through four was a hot bath. But, he always wanted to take a bath with me. His mother would try to distract him while I ran my hot bathwater, but his will dwarfed hers like an elephant dwarfs an ant.

      And, I’d start adding cold water…
