It's the little hints in life that make things easier

So there I (Tommy) was in the gym.  This week, the guy I work out with and I are switching up our routine a little to focus more on cardio instead of weight lifting.   (Don't want to get too impressive, can't keep April off me as it is.)  So I ran 10 minutes on the elliptical machine, ran 10 on some kind of weird elliptical/leg swingy thing-a-majigger, and 20 on the good ol' treadmill.  I surprisingly didn't die afterwords and actually didn't feel too bad.  Well right as we got done I suddenly had to, um..... go potty.  Well, I went into the restroom, which is of course a public restroom as long as your one of the public on base.  So, in the stalls they have those little paper toilet seat thingys that keep your tush from making contact with the dreaded germ filled public toilet seat.


 Well, for those of you that don't already know this, you tend to work up a little sweat after 40 minutes of running.  So after everything was out in the open (sorry, I can't help but make at least one poo joke) I decided it was time to get up and go.  Well, it turns out that those little paper thingys absolutely love to stick to anything wet.  So i get up and like half this thing is sticking to me.  Not all in one piece either.  Like one half spread around my legs and posterior.  So I had to blindly (who can see back there?) feel around and peel off all the little pieces of paper stuck to me, which also kept tearing even more because those things are made to come apart with moisture.  So after this debacle I decided it was my duty to inform the good people who happen to read our blog of this tragedy to help them avoid anything like this in the future.  So remember my mistakes and take heed.

OH my word, that is SO hilarious! I love these kind of stories... just the regular things that happen to us as we try to navigate through this modern world, that are SO FUNNY. I was seriously cracking up. What a funny thing to happen... probably wasn't funny at the time. :) Thanks for the great laugh!!

Great Story. I have a similar one. Let me share: When Jessica first moved in with us we decided to go to breakfast as a family one morning. We had a wonderful time and as Phillip paid - she and I went to use the restroom. As I was washing my hands - out she came. Tucked into the back of her jeans waistband was a sight to be seen. I saw her "potty guard" hanging from her waist. She had no idea. I was laughing soooo hard that I couldn't speak. For you see... it was also let's just say, wet! It was slapping against her legs as she walked. She didn't know what I was so hysterical over. Finally she realized what the situation was. Then we both were dying of laughter. If I think about it - I find myself giggling to this day.
