Recently, I tried to ironize about the importance of private rooms in the office, likening them to "the air we breathe".
...And was lost for a word that says "enjoy our solitude in" with more rhyme and impact. My target sentence would be like
It's important like the air we breathe and the restrooms we [enjoy our solitude in],
but ideally with a single verb in the end.
Breathe, drink, eat, these are brief and powerful. "Sleep in" is also brief, though weaker. The shortest I was able to think of was "seclude ourselves in", or "retreat to", but both have added connotations.
Is there a single word, even if archaic or unusual, that can serve as a verb for enjoying or perusing one's privacy?
