There's today's first new addition to my vocabulary: "wild toileting". It sounds like the aftermath of a Saturday night meat vindaloo.

is it like Wild Camping and Wild Swimming which, in my youth, were just called Camping and Swimming? it's just become de rigueur to add "wild" to make them sound exciting and edgy :(

There are so many possibilities for post-Covid adventures:

Wild Shopping

Wild Cycling

Wild Boating

Wild Working - oh no, can't do that I have now retired . . .

"I've been a wild toileter for many's the year

And I've spend all my money on Andrex and beer..."

 

I suspect that is the case for rather a lot of the more elderly males, not from choice but from necessity!

People of a certain age will now. Is it still possible to play the comb now that old style Izal paper is not commonly seen

Of course we had a wider choice in those days with ‘hard’ toilet paper - similar products being available from ‘Bronco’ and ‘Jeyes’ - not to mention of course British Railways - I knew of many who would visit the train loo on the home bound commute to secure an adequate supply. I don’t know when ‘soft’ toilet paper first arrived on the scene but with the old stuff there was little encouragement to use an excess!

Better in the toilet too, it comes in bigger sheets and isn't as hard and slippery...

In my younger school days, we used to travel partway home at half term by train from Gloucester to Birmingham.

The trick was to horizontally hold a whole BR bog roll from a pencil or such like as one of your fellow travellers held his foot on the lavatory flush button on the carriage floor, and if careful, the roll was thus flushed away under the train. This was done when the train was on the famed Lickey Incline from Bromsgrove, and a further boy would have his head out of the window to adjudicate success which was to get the bog paper flapping out behind the banking engine.
