» Shit Stories: Part Number Two

Toilets on the continent sometimes have a shelf in the basin (think Antarctic shelf rather than Scandinavian flat-pack).

This apparently exists so after a bowel motion your poo can be inspected with an analytical eye e.g. for signs of blood.

Unfortunately it seems to some that the pristine white interior of a toilet resembles a fashionable art gallery. The shelf within being the perfect place to exhibit a turd one is particularly proud of.

» Family codes and rituals

Photos and doors
Now Stevie Wonder literally sings the praises of superstitions, my Grandma despite being sharp as a (knitting) needle, agnostic and generally fantastic has a few of her own we all must follow:

You must leave the house through whichever door you first entered. Not too much bother but a bit odd.

She refuses to have whole family photos taken - apparently they are bad luck and as soon as the image is developed we'll start dropping like flies. I have no idea where this came from, maybe from the John Goodman film 'King Ralph' when the entire British Royal family checks out during a photo shoot due to some dodgy wiring.

Three rings. When you've arrived home safely after visiting you've got to phone them and let it ring three times - GCHQ has nothing on this code system and there's the almost tangible pleasure of getting a free service from BT.

Still love her to bits.
