Sit Down and Be ProudPosted: August 28, 2007
So, here I am, writing my 99th post. Who knew I’d make it this far. Certainly not me.
Also, I sort of promised myself that I wouldn’t entertain bathroom posts, particularly about my own actions, until at least the 101st post.
Well, screw that. We’re throwing caution to the wind. I’m writing about it now. Number 99.
Yup, this is me. Living on the edge.
OK, so, the thing is. I’m a guy. This you know. You also know I wouldn’t always fit into the category of ‘typical guy.’ Particularly when it comes to one of my bathroom habits.
I can admit it. I really can. Here goes. Ready?
Hi, I’m Mike. And I’m a SometimesSitter.
Phew. I don’t know how you feel, but I’m feeling much better with that off my chest.
So what does that mean, actually?
It means that whenever I go the bathroom, of the number one variety, I’m not always standing over the toilet.
Sometimes I sit.
Why? I’m not really sure, but, I do.
And, you know what? I like it.
Let’s look at a couple of examples.
I always sit at work. It’s the easiest, cleanest and most convenient. I work in an office with mostly women. This way, I don’t sprinkle anywhere, I don’t have to worry about putting the seat down. None of that. Just sit down, take a nice little rest and that’s it.
There’s only one other guy in the office, so if the women find any leftovers or if the seat is still up, guess what? It’s him. Not me. I take some comfort in that.
In other public spots, I’ll choose not to be a SometimesSitter. It sort of depends on where and the overall cleanliness situation. But, that’s the benefit of this. I can choose when and where I want to be a SometimesSitter.
I’m almost always a SometimesSitter when I wake up in the morning. As I trudge down the hall to go, I’m too asleep to concentrate on aim and all that stuff. Just sit down and go. What’s the big deal?
Being a SometimesSitter is nothing to be ashamed of. This I know. In fact, I might be ahead of the curve on this one.
So, if there are, in fact, any guys reading this blog, how about it? Are you a SometimesSitter?
It’s OK. In fact, it’s more than OK.
So stand up, er, sit down and be proud.
What else? I got nothin’.
