This sounds just like the kind of thing I'm always trying to do! I
have OCD, and everyday I have to struggle with only being able to get
my teeth reasonably clean instead of as clean as I'd like to. Uh oh,
I think I got some dust on me from the keyboard; back to my
compulsions. ;-)

Also, I don't know if it was just a typo, but bathgroom sounds about
like for what the room is used. I like it and I think I'll try to
use it.

Finally, so this post has something of relevance in it, I'm not quite
sure what the dream is supposed to be getting at. The only thing
that jumps at me is that it could be used as a way of describing the
kind of shock people have when they first hear about physicalistic
mind theory (well, everyone's told me it's shocking, so I'll defer to
them, but personally I never once believed that the mind was somehow
something more than the result of the brain).
