The loo, our only sacred fortress of solitude, still untainted by the dredges of regular life, is actually where we do some of our best work. The reason being that there’s simply nothing else to do!

However, the definition of “best work” might be a liiiittle subjective. These are the top 10 things people do while sitting on the crapper!

1. Think: What am I doing with my life?

We tend to get quite self-reflective while we let the torpedoes loose. Our job, philosophical questions about self-worth, karma, flood our idle minds.

2. Do: Impressions of movie and TV characters.

Clint Eastwood to Jim Carrey to Bane. We all do the voices and the expressions of our favourite characters and people, with even more effort than what we devote to the actual process of pooping itself!

3. Think: Doesn’t that look like…

Admit it. We’ve all compared a floater to some familiar object or, (good God!) a person we know!

4. Do: Take a short nap.

Yep. Although this mostly happens at the office toilet than the one at home, the loo is the one place where our boss isn’t gonna be able to breathe down our necks, so we might as well catch forty winks before we head back.

5. Think: I bet I could totally start my own band.

Almost all of us have a hidden unpursued desire to be a rockstar Band vocalist, inside us. In the privacy of our loo, we let it loose, singing our favourite song at the top of our voice like a pro!

6. Do: Massage yourself.

You know exactly what kind of a “massage” I’m talking about. Yep, especially when you already have the tissue nearby too! Free WiFi, and you’ve got your phone as well! Win-win, right?

7. Think: What colour is that?

Wondering about the colour of your poop is another admirable hobby almost everyone has. Our minds quickly drift to what we ate the previous night, that led to such an awe-inspiring colour and look.

8. Do: Finish that novel you’d started.

Yeah, we’ve all read newspapers in the loo, so why not a novel? I’ve personally finished the “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy on the loo, over a period of a few weeks, of course! Tolkien, forgive me.

9. Think: Did I lock the door?

This one is a no-brainer. We’ve all had that sudden panic attack once or twice, where we get paranoid thinking whether anybody could suddenly walk in!

10. Do: Take a small snack break.

Yep, people do that. True story. Especially if it’s something they’re not supposed to have. From Diabetic dads sneaking in a piece of Jalebi away from mom’s vigilant eye, to kids with their stolen candy stock, the toilet is the one place we can indulge our guilty pleasures in peace!
