Women's Peeing Apparatus
My sweet, wonderful husband has been talking about this heavenly contraption for the last couple weeks. Now let me say that I love Eric very much and I think he's the cutest thing ever, but he wants to buy me this w.p.a. (women's peeing apparatus, as I call it) to use. I have to admit it would be pretty handy while camping when there's no bathroom around! I guess it's the closest I'll ever get to having manly convenience, but what I won't agree to is using the w.p.a. in the car, while traveling. Let me be more specific: while the car is in motion. Every school year we drive back and forth across the country, and he is convinced that this wonderful tool will shed hours off our driving time (all right, I do have a very tiny bladder, but come on!). It makes me think of the movie Rat Race where the little girl is made to do her business in the back seat because her father's in too much of a hurry to pull over. Well, I laughed and laughed when Eric suggested this to me. I think he's given up on the idea by now. Of course, the next time we go out west we'll have a baby with us, so as far as I'm concerned there's really no point in trying to "save time," am I right?
