    Frightening! But the descriptions are in such a funny way that I cannot stop a big big smile even if times and times my heart was crying. Great lesson, though if too much time to spend at ladies room it has to be, let's hope for some of the new japanese toilets..try one and you'll see..(*_*) (Report) Reply
