True Confessions…

We aren’t that different from dogs. Seriously. I was walking my dog today and as always we had to stop for a potty break. It’s here that his routine begins. He goes around and around, sniffing and exploring his options. It is almost as if the various areas of grass provide different accommodations for which he can take care of, or should I say do his business. At first I did what we all do. I sighed and wished silently that he would hurry up. Then it hit me that we aren’t so different in the way we handle this situation. My dog could scarcely hold onto the contents of his bowel and yet he continued running in circles looking for the perfect spot to go. So this is it, my true confession. There are three types of people in this world: those who use public restrooms, those who use public restrooms in an emergency, and those who refuse to use public restrooms. I should mention, that by ‘public,’ I mean the restroom in Nordstrom-you know, the secret one in the back that we run to when alas, natures calls. We looked around and we might have sniffed, but in the end the decision is the same. This spot, the one we staked out, is the spot to go. Just like dogs. It’s sad.

So true that is! I can confess that I used to be a "only use a public restroom in an emergency person" but as I got older and after children I became a "gotta go now my bladder is the size of a pea and I hope they at least have paper person".

Boy...I'm with Aunt Kim. You become much less picky about your potty place as the years catch up with you! If there's no paper, maybe by some stroke of luck, we'll have an apple!!!!!!!
