“I want to be Hypothyroid” I heard the voice mutter as the taps started running.
“Oh aye?” came a second voice accompanied by the tearing of paper towels.
“Definitely! Hypothyroidism makes you lose a ton of weight! And I could do with losing a bit of this I’m carrying around … Honestly this diet just isn’t working for me, been trying to lose these last 4 pounds for yonks but if I was Hypothyroid … ”
Mid-pee I knew something needed to be said … Yes right there, in the office bathroom.
“You’ve mixed up the illnesses” I began, voice echoing from the cubicle “Hypothyroidism can make it difficult to lose weight, Hyperthyroidism can result in weight loss. But I’m not sure why -“.
“- Oh … Right …” She cheerily shrilled before “I guess I’d rather be Hyperthyroid then!”
