I'm sorry for the bombardment of many posts the past two days, but I just HAD to share the news about this little contraption that I just read about in WAI Mag. Let me paint ya a little picture here: flying to Florida from Michigan and I have the case of hamster bladder. We had to land in some po-dunk airport in Ohio because I just couldn't take it anymore! We didn't want to shut down the plane to avoid a hot start so Bob held the brakes while I went in the very disgusting out house. Next, it was Bob's turn and I held the brakes. Unfortunately the plane was so packed tight with our luggage he couldn't get out of his side and had to climb over me. I had my legs stretched as far as they could to hold the brakes while his butt slid against my cheeks (face ones) to get out. Did I mention this was our first week as a couple? Yeah... Guys are lucky for moments like this. Bob keeps a nice wide mouthed bottle of iced tea in the plane for such occasions. Would that work for me? Not so much without strippage and spillage! Here comes GoGirl, the device that allows a girl to pee standing up and to direct it too. They can be disposable or re-cleanable and come in pink or camo colors. I went through their website and read their "how to use" pamphlet and it sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll pick one up (only $9.99 worth a shot!) for the next long trip. All I'd have to do is unzip! :)
GoGirl: "Don't Take Life Sitting Down"
Updated 7/1/10: I shared the GoGirl with Billyray at work today and she told me about a kind her daughter used and we got searching for the various easy to pee things for girls there are out there. Ah ! What would we do without the wonderful internet? :) This next one I think is really great too, and maybe even easier than the GoGirl. It pretty much acts like a mans parts, just put it on and go! It was developed in the Netherlands in the 90's and has spread like wildfire. I think I may get some so I don't have to squat the next time I go camping!
