- I sang in my little teeny-tiny bathroom the other day.
- I heard a girl singing in one of the hugely cavernous bathrooms in our campus library.
- I sang in the shower this morning while I blasted "Wicked" from the stereo in the dining room.
But I digress.
Why do we sing in the bathroom?
Here are the reasons I came up with:
- We think we are alone.
- The acoustics make it sound cool.
Ya know, like in musicals. Or Bollywood movies. (Yes, I wrote this in Hindi class.) If you feel a song coming on, just signal to the maestro or DJ or dude-walking-by-with-the-stereo-built-into -his-backpack (no, really, I've seen him more than once on campus. But not lately.) and BRING IT ON! Musicals and Bollywood movies would be...weird...if the characters waited until they were alone in the bathroom to sing. Especially if they waited until they were alone in my bathroom. It's so small that you can't be anything but alone in it, but then, see, the film crew wouldn't fit, and a musical number behind a closed or partially open (it only ever opens partially--the toilet is in the way) door would be...awkward. Physically and emotionally. And weird. And wouldn't sell movies. Plus, the tap dancing along to your song would be hard in my bathroom. Limited space and all.
I hereby officially state that not all bathrooms are conducive to singing in the bathroom.
Whew. Now it's official. I feel so much better.
