I am currently in the process of inventing something I am going to call a, 'lie in.' It's when you have nothing to do till 2pm, at which time you will have a very unproductive meeting, so until then and until you need to wee you just sit in bed, drinking coffee, shooting the shit on the net, eating choc chip cookies, and watching TV. If you do need to wee, well, I have considered a receptacle, but I think you should combine the loo run with the time when the coffee cup runs empty.
Of course, you may wish to Irish up the coffee a little, if you are a real man, and not some froo froo doily knitting dandy like myself.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.
If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.
