This is Oliver. Why am I sharing this picture of an adorable little kitty? Last night I went to a college friend’s house. We’re sitting around having a few drinks and I have to use the bathroom which is down around the corner from where we’re all sitting. So, I go there and the “lock” is a tiny hook-and-eye set-up that is very sketchy and leaves a small crack in the door opening.
“I’m wondering if the people who are members in the IPA are a bunch of weirdos. I mean, they have to be, right?”
I’m sure this question has crossed your mind. 15+ years ago when I first learned about the International Paruresis Association I know I thought it.
