My DH has secretly taken a candle into our bathroom

And I'm confused. We're abroad at the moment at our house in Italy so it's not anything to do with new spaces. It's literally a candle on the shelf, partially hidden.

And the other day he was rummaging through drawers and I asked what he was looking for. After a moment or two, his reply was "Nothing of any importance." I took him at his word.

THEN my dd came out of the bathroom and whispered to me that there was a candle and matches in there on the shelf!

What's he doing?? Candlelit showers by himself?! He doesn't take showers and is never in there for longer than ten mins.

I've mentioned the candle to him casually and I just got a "Mmmm" so he doesn't want to tell me.

Ideas please from the wisdom of MN smile

Fetish for hot wax on the nipples?

To cover up any residual smells after he's used the bathroom?

To seduce you by candlelight? To run you a bath with candles or have one himself?

Perhaps he's performing voodoo rituals in there, I wouldn't ask too many questions.

Either masking poo smells, romancing you or shoving it up his arse, one extreme or the other I guess....

Secret smoker?

9amTrain Fri 20-Jul-18 13:05:08

Are candlelit showers a thing? If he doesn't have showers then he must have baths? So candlelit baths?

Or as I said ... His shit.

Better log it with 101, and something about ducks?

Singeing a duck, after he’s plucked it?

Never in the bathroom for longer than ten minutes? Are you sure he’s a man? I thought all men had to take twenty minute shits before undertaking any task.

I think the candle is for smells.

Slartybartfast Fri 20-Jul-18 13:08:06

have a poo?

9amTrain Fri 20-Jul-18 13:09:44

@SimonBridges I don't! I curl one out in about a minute and a half and I'm done! I get bored sitting on the toilet.

Smoking? Strong smell of poo? Or maybe he just finds candles relaxing a la Chandler from friends!

Is he a candle sort of fella? I'd be worried about my husband if I found him with a candle, I'd think he'd been reprogrammed.

Maybe he's having some 'me time' poor lad can't even have a shit in piece without twenty questions

My DH always takes* our youngest cat with him to the bathroom and blames him for any lingering smells. I have my doubts about the veracity of that claim and I'd be frankly delighted if he took a scented candle instead.

I say *'takes but it's more youngest cat seems to think DH is his mom and follows him everywhere.
