Been paying a little attention to current trends in “upscale” “luxury” housing designs. Wandered around some model homes in a new california development. Now in all the master bathrooms (master bathrooms! master!) there is no sign of a toilet— the toilet has its own room that looks like a closet. An american wc I guess. I’ve only seen them before in fancy restaurants. But this is just to say here’s an idea for a piece of speculative fiction I won’t write: all these rich kids growing up in houses (and I’m guessing private schools’ bathrooms will follow restaurants and homes…) that make it possible for them to believe that they are the only ones whose sh+t stinks and what is the psycho-social outcome of that lived experience?
