November 19th is a very auspicious occasion. It's none other than "International Tinkle Pantry Day".

For those of you who are unfamiliar withrepparttar 118132 little known term "tinkle pantry", it isrepparttar 118133 focal point and modest appliance found in most "water closets", "places of ease" or "comfort stations".

North Americans probably knowrepparttar 118134 tinkle pantry by way of more familiar terms such asrepparttar 118135 "powder room" and "restroom", orrepparttar 118136 ever-popular family "throne room".

Few realize thatrepparttar 118137 average person visitsrepparttar 118138 toilet 2,500 times per year, or 6-8 times per day, which all adds up to about 3 years of one's life. Consideringrepparttar 118139 fact that this humble private and sometimes public privy isrepparttar 118140 most frequently visited room in any home or workplace, precious little has been done to recognize it's vital role in society.

If truth be told,repparttar 118141 tinkle pantry is a subject most avoid so as not to be considered a scruffy scatalogical storyteller. Considered a taboo dinner table topic, it is shunned by everyone except toddlers and parents who rejoice at this first step into adulthood by passing "Toilet Training 101" with flying colours.

It is rare indeed to see a politician of any stripe spend much time waxing on aboutrepparttar 118142 virtues of toilets. Precious few communities or even corporations consider celebrating with parades, marching bands, or even an official holiday,repparttar 118143 invention ofrepparttar 118144 toilet (several thousand years ago in ancient China and modernized by a British plumber named T.J. Crapper more than a century ago).
