I never go into the bathroom upstairs at my house. That’s the bathroom my son uses, and he can’t aim. If he goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I can guarantee you there’s more on the lid and the floor than in the toilet. He blames it on the dark because he doesn’t want to turn on the light. My wife calls it lazy, but I understand. I just have better aim.
I think what we need in the bathroom is one of these custom Ben Heck illuminated toilet rings. Granted, with an 11-year-old, it would need to be urine proof. Heck took a flexible light strip and cobbled together a fuzzy bathmat with pressure sensitive electronics inside.
All you have to do to get the red glow around the toilet, and hopefully improve your aim, is step on the bathmat. If you want to make one of these for yourself check out the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show.
I don’t think my wife would go for one of these in our bathroom.
