The Bathroom Locator

By Jim Hagarty

You may not know that I am an amateur inventor but I have been dreaming up contraptions all my adult life and now I have come up with something that I think will push my status up to a whole new level. For those directionally challenged people, such as myself, who have trouble finding their way from their bedrooms to their bathrooms in the middle of the night, I have come up with the practically perfect device.

It is a little electronic thingy that is worn around the wrist. It is satellite-driven and I am calling it the GPISS.

I am now taking orders.

I am a 65-year-old retired journalist, busy recovering from a lifelong career as an unretired journalist. This year marks a half century of my scratching out little fables about life. My interests include genealogy, humour and music. I live in a little blue shack in Canada and spend most of my time trying to stay out of trouble. I am not that good at it. I also spent years teaching journalism. Poor state of journalism today: My fault. I have a family I don't deserve, a dog that adores me, and two cars the junk yard refuses to accept. My prized possessions include my old guitar and a razor my Dad gave me when I was 14 and which I still use when I bother to shave. Oh, and my great-great-grandfather's blackthorn stick he brought from Ireland in the 1850s. I have only one opinion but it is a good one: People take too many showers.
