上厕所 Going To The Washroom
Okay. If you have a boy, he's likely going to find this hilarious.
Even if you have a girl, she's probably going to be laughing out loud too!
Find out together how toilets have evolved over the years, with a Chinese spin to it. In the past animals and humans used to pee and poo all around, but it soon led to all kinds of awful diseases, some even had deadly consequences. Since then, mankind has been on a continual quest to address this biological function.
I absolutely love this 生活小百科 series, that is highly relatable to our daily life, and causes us to wonder about what we may take for granted, like basic sanitation. The other titles in the series are 做梦 and 记事情 on dreaming and remembering things, also available on the webstore. Do NOT miss those as well!
