Ode to a One Sink Bathroom

How sweet that you bumped my elbow
in the mirror you caught my eye
you brush your teeth with such vigor
and tell me how to brush mine

So cute when you take off your makeup
with wipes that smell'o formaldehyde
your face near the faucet for an hour
my beautiful sweet darling bride

Seriously, what are you doing?
I have toothpaste in my mouth!
I'm definitely not going to swallow it,
and you suggest the toilet to spit it out?

You stand there taking your time
probably on purpose, but really, who knows?
but if you hog the sink any longer
like Luda, I'mna throw them bows.

now, at least forty five minutes later
I'm standing here left only to think
about how in our next house
you're getting your own goddamn sink.


  1. Gad - we share a sink too. *I* am not the one who takes a long time. Totally agree - next house - 2 sinks. Maybe 3 - we have 2 girls.

  2. Sorry I haven't had time to visit lately! Too too funny! Oh, the romance, the tragedy, the character development ;)

  3. I love this. I really do.

    This is why the husband has his own bathroom. It's delightful.

  4. Now this is my kind of poetry. It says exactly what it means to say! Fortunately, we have 4 full baths in our house (yes, there are only two of us), so it's not an issue. I grew up in a house with one bathroom, two parents, and 4 girl children. The fights we had were epic!

  5. I'm sure it will have to change as they get older, but for now it works. I let my wife have the bathroom, completely, and I share with the kids.
