Rants & Raves: My beloved gave me a toilet bowl


Yes, he did! And it has made me deliriously happy for the last few weeks…

In case you’re curious, it’s a

When he went shopping for the throne itself, T kept sending me pictures and links via Whatsapp. Would you like it higher? Which one do you like better? I said I preferred one with dual-flush to save water. He said he preferred something higher. We read reviews online and compared prices. The bidet attachment was something we talked about because we were spoilt by the nice hotel toilets we experienced during our last holiday. Aren’t we wannabe fancy-smancy? I love it because it’s OUR toilet! However, in T’s own words, he “haven’t had to poop at home” yet and “so no chance to test its mettle”. Perhaps I might even do a separate review about my loo! Mwahaha!

This toilet is in the new Master Bedroom which T has been trying to put together for ages. (He laid the tiles, grouted and caulked on his own.) In the last few weeks, he’s been speeding it up so that he can finally move into it and I get to share it with him when I go visit in May! I’m really a practical person and this means a lot more to me than a luxury holiday or other material goods. And I appreciate that this is how T shows love. Instead of fireworks, romancing me with fancy dinners or expensive gems, I get a high-tech, sanitation device. Here’s an open secret – I love pooping and a good, thorough poop with smooth delivery puts me in a good mood ANYTIME! So here’s a man after my heart… C’mon and say Aawwww…

I suppose in a very important way, this toilet is more than just a toilet. He’s giving me my very own throne. Instead of a pedestal, he puts me on a comfortable toilet.

So yeah, my beloved gave me a toilet bowl and it sent me to the moon!

  1. Pretty awesome! My boy will send me shoes he knows I will love because 1. I am a shoe-a-holic 2. he knows my size and 3. he knows the type of shoes I like SO well he can shop for them without me. 🙂 He knows me so well, even from 1000 miles away.

  2. Chloe, after reading this post, I am insisting, no, demanding that the Significant Other give me a toilet just like this one! The bidet thingy is a must! hee hee! 🙂
