You had to be there: Laurel asks if there are squat toilets in New York.

Laurel asked me what toiletries are after I mentioned that I wanted to pick up a toiletry bag before I finished packing. (I've been using a slide-lock plastic zipper-lock bag for a few years.)

In looking up the etymology of toiletries, we looked at the Wikipedia article on toilets, where she was fascinated by a picture of a squat toilet accompanied by the text:
"...the squat toilet is still somewhat common in public restrooms in southern and eastern Europe (including parts of France, Greece, Italy, and the Balkans) as well as East Asia (China and Japan) and other places."

She replied to that, "Like New York?". Ouch.
