Every now and then certain commemorative days or holidays will coincide and form a sort of supernova day, like when Christmas meets Hanukkah or a birthday falls on a Saturday — it just feels like something special that was Meant To Be.

Today is one of those days. According to the calendar, November 19 is both International Men’s Day and World Toilet Day. Has anything felt more fitting? In honor of this occasion, spend a little time thinking about the role both toilets and men play in your life.
