We have a beautiful new bathroom with heated slate floors and a large shower enclosed in glass. Itís an airy space filled with reflective surfaces. But, Iíve since discovered itís really a venue for masochists. If properly positioned in the stall I can see my reflection from three sides. If I look away, another triptych of chub greets me in the huge mirror that runs the length of the counter. Before this, when staying in hotels I used to wonder what sort of sadistic design freak sticks a mirror on the wall immediately next to the toilet. Now I know.
