*The earlier, published post of “the Bidet” has inexplicably disappeared post-publish and I recreated this post from an old, old draft. I’m really not sure what happened. So, I apologize if this post is less polished than normal*
Machines are taking over our apartment. I put a poll on Facebook asking which machines you were interested in learning about for a series called “Machine Mondays” and the overwhelming winner was the bidet. A few thoughts and disclaimers:
First, I didn’t know these things were so inexpensive. It was less than a couple hundred dollars. Maybe it’d cost more if it was a separate, stand alone unit, but we clearly don’t have room for that and that kind of bidet raises a lot of questions for me.
Second, the bidet is practical but we acknowledge that it is not necessary. If you have any questions about why we decided to get a bidet (maybe I just need to justify it to myself), I encourage you to throw your used toilet paper into a garbage can instead of flushing it for a week; I think you’ll understand our reasoning.
I thought it’d be more interesting to make a video. I’m getting over a cold, you’ll hear that in my voice. Our cat, Sevsgare, bites me at one point (she thought we were playing) that’s why I say, “Ow!!!” I did clean up the mess (you’ll understand by the end) as soon as I shut off the video. And, yes, the controls have braille on them.
If you have questions, feel free to leave them below or on Facebook.
