I am thankful for indoor plumbing. It is COLD outside (7° not factoring wind chill). With the foot issues I have, running anywhere is a joke, let alone to an outdoor privy. Hence, gratitude for the water closet.

Thank you, Thomas Crapper.

Mr. Crapper is widely credited for inventing the flush toilet–which is not true–he made them popular, so to speak, in a Victorian setting when talking about such things was considered uncouth at best. Other “potty” terms (i.e. taking a crap, going to the john) are not actually connected to Mr. Crapper in any way. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Crapper)

Of course, there are always chamber pots. But I won’t go there.

Pun intended.
