Still unsure, at my age


We're staying at a wonderful boutique hotel in the small town of Geneva, Illinois. The furnishings are elegant, and there is a view of the Fox River from our room's balcony.

A good place to walk in the morning



We had a wonderful meal in the hotel restaurant, and came up to our room for a nice soak in the lavish bath. Such enjoyment and luxury!


Although I like to think I am sophisticated, sometimes I am confronted with things that make me feel like an ignorant rube.

Bidet
Can anyone tell me how to use one of these? I've never tried one before. What do you do exactly?

And it's funny for me to be here in Geneva, Illinois feeling like a dumb schoolgirl, because - well, you'll hear more later.

You are in for a treat with that thing. True story. I actually had one in a house I lived in many many moons ago -- no pun intended. Adjust the water temperature, straddle, position yourself so that the water is directed to the desired *region*, adjust the water pressure, and voilĂ !

I can't believe I just "said" this on the Internet. Heh.

And . . . safe travels!

The straddle part doesn't sound relaxing....

Is the point of the thing hygiene, or associated sensual benefits?

Seriously, how did I get to be 56 years old without learning about these things?

I dunno, I can see a bidet of your own, but one that everybody has been using?
