4 poops out of 5. 

I recently had to make an emergency visit to the hospital to deal with an incredibly infected big toe. It was bad. Everyday of my life is a terrible and hilarious nightmare. The waiting room at the ER is a very high anxiety place, and when I’m anxious it makes me poop. Luckily the bathroom was just around the corner and it was a lovely and pleasant experience. This was easily the cleanest bathroom I’ve ever been in. I could have stayed there all day if it wasn’t for the lady yelling at me to hurry up so she could give a urine sample.

The Fox Cabaret

The Fox used to be a porno theatre. A place to watch porns with other people!? Gross! That obviously closed down because the Internet happened and now it is a really great bar. On my most recent visit to The Fox, I paid a visit to the very crowded bathroom. There are only three stalls in this tiny bathroom so there is always a long line of nice people to make friends with. It is consistently clean and well stocked, despite how busy it is. But that also makes for a less than ideal bathroom for reapplying makeup or taking mirror selfies.

Aberdeen Mall

This Richmond mall is a truly magical place. Everything you need is here! It is home to some amazing shops and an incredible Asian food court. Also this one time I saw Steven Seagal at Daiso, Aberdeen’s incredible Japanese import dollar store. It was really weird. The bathrooms at The Aberdeen Mall are terrific. They are beautiful and modern. It was also very clean and well maintained. The huge windows provide beautiful natural light so it’s perfect for applying the new lipstick you just bought from the Korean beauty store.
