The year: 2002. The place: Genova, Italy. Upon entering the room, I noticed right away the small balcony with a beautiful view of this town. Putting down my bags, I inspected the room to make sure everything was in order. In the bathroom, I saw something like this.
At first sight, I had no clue what it was. Is it an extra toilet or an extra sink? Later on, I learned that it was a bidet (Look it up if you still don’t know what I’m talking about). Good thing I didn’t wash my hair in it!
I don’t know about where you live, but here where I’m from those things are just not common in the average bathroom. But I have seen these.
It attaches to your toilet, and basically functions as a bidet. Toilet and bidet in one! Some people would say “I gotta get me one of those!”
If you are in the market for one of these bidet attachments, think real carefully first before you purchase, especially if you have a toddler in your house.
One fine day, when we were at someone’s house for a visit, one of my children went to the bathroom to do their thing. My youngest decided to follow his older sibling, and while this child was sitting on the toilet, my little boy turned the knob on the bidet. The poor victim of this incident screamed as if there was a fire in the house. And, when I went to investigate what the commotion was all about, I discovered that it was not a fire, but a geyser.
My little one must have turned it full blast because that water shot up from the toilet, hitting about 5 feet up the wall. I am not exaggerating. I wish I had a picture to show you, but taking pictures was the last thing on my mind that day.
After mopping up the wet floor and walls, we all had a good laugh about it.
What still baffles me about this bidet is why would anyone want or need to turn it on to the highest setting?
Has anything funny happened to you lately?
