Temporary, portable toilets are bad. There’s just no way around it. Unfortunately, they’re necessary from time to time. For instance, the wedding I went to in Santa Fe last weekend took place on my uncle’s ranch. They didn’t want all the guests walking through the house to use the bathroom, inevitably leaving it dirty and disgusting, so they decided to rent a portable bathroom facility. I call it that because this was far more than your average construction site sani-can. This was a bathroom on wheels. And it still surpassed some bathrooms that people have in their homes. My dorm bathroom wouldn’t even hold a candle to this puppy.



It had a pretty substantial mirror, central air, electricity, hot running water,



flowers, soap, hand towels personalized with the bride and groom's names (in case you passed out and forgot where you were),



three textures of toilet paper (for the connoisseur), and a flushing toilet. And all of that on wheels.

Talk about swanky.

    -- "hand towels personalized with the bride and groom's names (in case you passed out and forgot where you were)" -- I love it! and some did in fact need the reminder.

    Good san-o-can review. By the way, that san-o-can was nicer that most bathrooms I've ever been in -- indoors or out. The only thing missing was a view.

    I'm confused about the three different textures of toilet paper. When would you choose the not-so-soft variety over the really soft?

    I guess I'm not a connoisseur.
