My brother's apartment building is really old, it has big landings.
The building I lived in in London (England) was the same age, it had big landings too, they turned them into bathrooms.
I really liked the room I took my showers in every morning there. It had a nice big frosted window that let the morning sunshine in.
Plus, some of my friends used that room too, so I got to say hello and have a chat when I got out of the shower.
Hmm, wait a minute .... it was only the guys hanging out in that stairwell waiting for the shower. Most of the girls used the showers in the main stairwell. But that was just because they lived at that end of the hall.
I wore my bathrobe to and from the shower. Why don't I wear that bathrobe anymore?
Oh, right, its kinda short.
Oh, now I know why there were guys lining up to wait for me to finish in the shower.
Probably best that I realized this 7 years after the fact.
