.. don't hold your pee in ..

Are you sometimes so preoccupied that you can't bother to get up and pee? Or what about too lazy?? Peeing can be a hassle sometimes, but you MUST give in to these bodily functions or suffer mightily...

Let me share a cautionary tale with you, dear readers. I was on a plane from Pennsylvania to California, sitting in the window seat, just minding my own business, reading, crying real human tears while watching the featured movie, and sipping away on my gingerale (with vodka), when I was struck with the sudden urge to pee (of course!). I held out for awhile, since the movie was entertaining enough, and added to that, the two passengers to the left of me were sound asleep, snoring slightly, but definitely not slim enough to bypass without waking. Instead of asserting myself and waking these individuals up, I decided to just wait it out. Oh man, was that a mistake. At some point, my condition became pretty unbearable, but I had already held on for so long, that I just wasn't willing to throw in the towel. I was determined to get off the plane before peeing. Besides which, the plane had started it's decent to earth, so I was stuck.

When I finally made it out of the plane from way in the back I was more than a little relieved, given my urgent situation. Any slight jarring or sudden laughter would have been the nail in the coffin for me...Fergie-gate all over again. I rushed out and tried to maneuver around some slow-moving people with their handfuls of carry-on luggage, but was thwarted once again! So close, too! The bathroom signs were no more than a 100 yards away. Sad, really.

The fates must have been against me that day. The police had discovered an abandoned black bag about 500 yards down and for safety reasons they quarantined us right as we exited the gate. I was in pain, and helpless to do anything about it. And no, I wasn't allowed to return to the plane. For the next hour and a half, they brought in bomb sniffing dogs, policemen swarmed the area, and I was just seething. I had so many opportunities on the plane, but because I didn't want to inconvenience anyone, I suffered.

Lesson learned. Pee whenever there's an opportunity, or else, get a feminine urination device (FUD). Men need not worry, as there are MUDs, too, that sometimes involve strapping a pee bag to your ankle, thereby bypassing the need to get up as often.

If you're out there and using the GoGirl FUD , please let me know!!

Here's the product description from their website:

"Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms.  It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. It’s hygienic.

GoGirl is easy to use.  Just lower your panties, and put GoGirl against your body, forming a seal.  Aim and, well, pee.  Pretty simple, huh?
GoGirl fits easily in your purse, pocket, or glove compartment. It’s a must for travel and sports. And it’s great for everyday––no more crouching over or trying to cover up an unsanitary public toilet.
While the concept may be new to you, European women have used female urination devices for years.  GoGirl’s not the first device of its kind. But try it. And we think you’ll agree it’s easily the best."
Oh, I'm thrilled this device fits nicely in my purse. How fun would it have been if I had brought this to the airport and was subsequently questioned by a TSA agent?

European women know what's what. This is beyond fancy.

  1. This is the fanciest post you've done! LOL! Are you going to get one? I hope you write a follow-up review if you do! BTW I bought a pedegg after reading your pos on it. Love it!

  2. Haha, thanks. I totally should get one, but I'm very accident prone so I'm not confident about creating the appropriate "seal." I'll let you know ;)

    So happy you bought the PedEgg!!
