OK, so on IM my away message provides some information I feel my friends need to know in order to determine when I will return. For example, I have one which states "Gone to the potty."
I feel this is important. It lets everyone know I will be returning, but it might be a few minutes.
THE WIFE says it is TMI.
BUT, in THE WORLD ACCORDING TO BEN I am not a real man because "Real men don't say potty."
