I had a dream last night where I was on a car trip with Cheryl, Robin and Harini and we stopped to get ice cream at this roadside stand. I went to the bathroom, but it had a big window into the stall, which looked right out onto the ice cream line. So people could see in! My grandma was there too and she was making fun of me.

Then I was back in Vichy and ran into two of my hôtellerie students, who were now selling electronics. I was disappointed that they hadn't gone very far in hôtellerie but they did speak pretty good English.

They spoke good English, but did they speak it well?

There's an ice cream shop somewhere in North America that has a full-length window in the bathroom door. When you engage the lock, the glass turns translucent (using liquid crystal glazing). The shop's owner says people occasionally forget to lock the door behind them, putting on a show for everyone within eyeshot. I think I saw this on the Travel Channel. Maybe you saw it, too.

I think it's okay to say that someone speaks good English! I didn't say they speak English good! It was an adjective modifying the noun "English"! As in their grasp of the English language, their whole understanding and use of the language! :pppppp

I saw pictures of the transparent public toilet in London. The whole box is made of one-way mirrors, so that you can see out and people can't see you. Hopefully.
