Why the hell is the toilet seat up...?

First, if it's up I know; I always look, having raised 2 boys. I am intelligent that way -- look to see if it's up or down, and make the appropriate adjustments {without bitching}.

{However, TEA did once say that our house was a democracy, and the THREE MEN voted to leave it UP! Ahhhh, really, son? Okay, since we are going with percentages of 'votes' here...YOU sit once and stand once, your BROTHER sits once and stands once, your FATHER sits once and stands once...well, hell, sometimes he sits for BOTH, the lazy...anyway, and I sit BOTH times!

So, ignoring the total wankerness of your sperm donor, that is: 5 sits and 3 stands -- PUT IT DOWN! And learn to never argue with a woman because only 2 ways to argue with a female...and NEITHER way WORKS!}

Anyway, I live ALONE now; and NO one has visited for a while. In fact, when I got in tonight from work, one of the first things I did was to go to the bathroom, at which time {of course} the bathroom seat was DOWN. So no visitors or maintenance men for spraying the apartment for bugs, etcetera, AND I had already been in the bathroom earlier. So, tell me...WHY was the bathroom seat UP when I went in there a while ago? This is the second time in a couple of weeks or so that this has happened. There is NO way that the seat lifted itself; there is no way that I 'bumped' it up, reaching for toilet paper {the roll is BEHIND the toilet, but still NO way!}.

There is absolutely no one in the apartment; no one but me lives here, and even if someone from maintenance comes in with a master key or whatever...they have not been here today, especially invisibly after I came in and went to the bathroom, after one in the morning! No one else has a key, and again they aren't invisible. All my windows are secure, as are the doors; half the windows, including the one in the bathroom, are too small for someone to get through. There is no where to hide in the bedroom or bathroom {waterbed, small closet, no closet in bath, no one in shower/bath area, and so on}; there is no where to 'hide' in this entire apartment.

As I said, this is at least the second time this has happened to me since I've lived here. So...since it can't be 'some one'...hmmmm...why would a 'ghost' need to go to the bathroom? If they can move through walls, why would they need to lift a seat at all? And if the 'ghost' were male, why would they bother to lift it, seeing as how most men don't bother to lift it at night! I wonder...if I need professional help?! Do I find a shrinkadink...or GhostBusters?

Ah, well, never mind...for now; I am off {work, that is; always 'off' other ways, so 'they' say} for a couple of days. J had surgery {oral surgery, the dentist/tooth kind} and first said he wanted me to go to his house then he said he was feeling worse and would rather try to sleep through it all {along with the slight help/relief the pain medicine was giving him}. Basically meaning I am staying in the Shoals, doing errands and whatever else my little 'castle' needs, and so forth.

I suppose I should put sleep on the 'list' so that I will actually wake up in time to do anything during business hours {although most of my 'stuff' is done through the internet, of course, so regular business hours are any...but there are some things...like Tennessee Lottery Tickets and Scratch-Offs....}.

Night, nite...sleep tight...don't let the bed bugs bite.... {Bull; spray them mattress mites with some lysol or whatever, and napalm them to buggy heaven or hell!}

Maybe the apartment manager is doing an illegal entry?

hover...excorcist, hell...Baroness DEMANDS TRICKS! I want to see some levitation, 'someone' walk through a wall or something...AMUSE the Baroness!

Paul, it wouldn't be illegal entry -- I have signed papers saying whether or not I'm here they can come in to spray, inspect, whatever. Besides that, I had already been home {after midnight} and had went to the bathroom...and the seat was DOWN. Wasn't anyone here but me, and no way for anyone to come/go without me knowing then. Sort of the whole point of my 'wondering' why it was UP?! Maybe I do have a 'spirit'...and, if so, I DEMAND TRICKS...NOW!!!! I wonder...what are good tricks to ask for? Hmmmm...nothing that will mess with my electronics...levitate a book {gently, of course}? Wonder if it could help my bamboo plant grow inside; hell, work on the ones outside, too, while 'he' is at it.... Run me water so that when I get in my bath is ready? Turn my bedside lamp on when I forget to do it before leaving for work? Oh...'help' with my answering machine message...?! THAT would be 'cool'!

Hover, hope you will be in there tonight; I didn't make it in last night since TEA needed to talk to me {he's the elder Brat of mine}. Don't know what kind of company I'll be by then...bit in 'bummer' mode, although I can't really say why {as in put it in words} and did talk to company from there on the messenger later last night and that did help but, well...I'll try to make it in, okay?

Spray the room? What were they FEEDING y'all?! {Reminds me of the kids' movies, the Next Friday et all series.}

I never cared whether the seat and/or lid was up or down...like I said, learn to look, make the appropriate adjustment, and get on with life!

Hey, I wonder...YOU do any 'tricks', CS? I soooo need...'amusing', right about now!


Hey your confirmation number for this post is 747...big ol' boy, built like a jet... YUMMIES!
