Questions #7

We are in the process of moving. Enjoy these pre written posts while I change my geographical location.

Damselfly asks "Have you ever had to pee outside?"

This may be quite shocking to some of my more delicate readers, so be forewarned. I have peed outside on numerous occasions.

Back in my youth our family would go camping for vacations, it was cheap and it also forced us to be together. My parents were not the kind of people that went to campgrounds with cabins, or showers or even flushing toilets. Their favorite campground did not even have drinking water, we had to haul our own in if we wanted to avoid getting Giardia from the nearby river. That particular campground had nasty toilets, so instead of peeing in them we would hike out away from our campsite and pee in the woods. We would also try and hold #2 for as long as possible so that we would not have to endure the stink of the facilities provided to the campers.

I also had to go a number of times in my back yard. On occasion I would forget to bring my hose key with me to school and I would end up being locked out of the house for about an hour before my dad would arrive home from work. I just hope that my neighbors did not see me. It was better than going in my pants.

Nothing is worse than taking a road trip with a young child who suddenly has to go (no civilization in sight) but absolutely refuses to go pee anywhere but a bathroom!
One of my sisters avoided this problem by potty training her children in their yard. They didn't have close neighbors!
