Our house has two bathrooms. One is attached to our bedroom as an ensuite. The other is the 'main' bathroom and when we built I made certain that not only is the toilet separate*, but that the handbasin is in an alcove outside the shower/bathroom. Thus three different and unrelated persons can do separate parts of their daily ablutions at the same time without impacting on our little ensuite hideaway.
Perhaps I should mention that we have two people in our house. We cannot physically use all available fixtures at the same time.
Anyway, that's a little diversion from the reason I'm blogging. You see, I'm not that keen on housework of any description, and cleaning two bathrooms when there are only two of us in the house seems like a huge waste of time and effort. Therefore, we use the ensuite. The other bathroom sits in pristine condition awaiting visitors. Every now and then I dust it and it stays clean. Despite the fact that my office is much closer to the main bathroom, I walk around the corner and all the way to the other end of the house to use the ensuite.
I did some cleaning yesterday, and I found in the pristine(?) main bathroom human hair. Short lengths of human hair. Thick human hair like facial hair. On the handbasin. With my office scissors that had disappeared.
For how long has it been like this?
How many visitors have come and I haven't known that it was a mess?
Who did it?
Fact 1: There are only two people living in the house.
Fact 2: The LBD does not have the opposable thumb necessary to operate scissors. He also has soft fur.
Exhibit 1: Short lengths of hair. Some graying.
Fact 3: I don't yet have any gray hair.
Fact 4: I don't yet have any facial hair. Maybe I should send it to the lab for forensic testing?
Fact 5: My Beloved's sideburns have recently sprung up closer to the top of his ears.
The chances that the mess was not by the hand of my Beloved?
* As it is in most Australian houses that I've ever visited. What is with that in US television shows? Do all American houses have all the fixtures in the one room like an ensuite, or is that just that the set designers are saving money?
