You thought I was going to say politics, didn’t you? Not this woman. Not now, not ever.
I will be more than happy to talk politics face to face, but get into a discussion over the internet? Nope, my mama didn’t raise any fools. Too much heat, too much anger for a “agree to disagree” discussion over the internet.
No, today’s post is about p. Yes, p as in going to the restroom, also known as “the water closet”, “the john” or just “the potty”. If you are grossed out by potty talk, sorry.
Maybe it’s my advancing age (almost fifty) or having given birth to three kids, but making sure that I have access to a ladies room is paramount. I’m not talking about the “coughing too hard, laughing too hard or even sneezing too hard” problems caused by having kids or old age. I’m talking about “drink a glass of water, find a bathroom immediately” problem.
I used to laugh at my mom and her insistence that we find a lady’s room immediately upon going into a store. Nope, not any more. I blame part of my new problem on blood pressure medicine, which is of course, a diuretic. Then my husband decided that I didn’t drink enough fluids. So, he started handing me water, Gatorade, milk, coffee, juice or lemonade all day long. ALL. DAY. LONG.
Yes, I love him and appreciate him caring for my welfare. But, for pity’s sake, I have seen the inside of more public bathrooms in the last 6 months than in the last six years! Home Depot is the most visited bathroom on my list, mainly because he is a contractor so we are always going to buy supplies. I can find the place blind folded.
Oh, and another thing: Do you get the urge, find the restroom, enter the stall and the minute you see the toilet you’re bouncing around like a five-year old with bad control? Yep, that’s new too.
Sigh. Guess what? I’m done, gotta go see a woman about a …. whatever, I have to go.
How good is your bladder control? Does a fountain or waterfall send you in search of a bathroom? Or are you a camel? Drink, drink and drink some more than wait eight hours to go to the bathroom?
