Sit Down and Be Proud

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.

A SometimesSitter.

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’.

    Guys have it so easy. In most situations women are a NoWayAmISittingThere Sitter. We have to squat, which can be difficult depending on what outfit/footwear you’re wearing that day. I envy you, SometimesSitter.

    PS- Thanks for not leaving a mess and for putting the seat down. We appreciate it.

  2. Clink says:

    Ha! I agree with Molly – I am usually a NoWayAmISittingThere Sitter.

    Also, I had no idea men sat. I don’t even want to think about the logistics of it, but I’m glad you’re being mindful of the lovely ladies you work with.

    We SO appreciate it. I’m trying to train my three-year-old son to be a sometimesitter, but he is too taken with the whole “pull ’em down and whip it out” thing that he can’t even entertain the notion.

    And believe me, the cleaning crew in his bathroom would appreciate a sometimesitter.

  4. ME says:

    I usually always sit in the morning, as I’m too tired to stand.

    Other than that, I’m pretty much always standing.

    I thoroughly enjoy both of your blogs. If you must squat, please clean up after yourself. This almost-never-squatter doesn’t enjoy sitting in your piss.

    Once upon a time, I worked in a 20 person office. None of us 5 girls squatted. The place was pristine-clean, so there was no need. Well, I guess our contracted marketing girl thought we were all skanks, because she would come in and squat instead of sitting in a perfectly clean bathroom. Of course, she was not a talented or kind squatter, so she ended up spraying piss all over the seat. Forcing us sitters to be squatters for the rest of the day.

    That’s why I named her the Hovercraft- a name she still carries in that office.

    Sit in the place where you pee
    Point it SOUTH
    And think about the girls
    who have to follow right after you

    If you get confused,
    just check with your son.
    Listen to his reason
    When you have that calling

    Sit in the place where you poop
    Then go pee.

    all the girls they’re countin’
    on you

    You sit down when you pee
    there aint no-shame-in-that

    Woo hoo hoo

    come on and pee
    Between your knees

    I don’t want to deal with
    Pee-in’ staning up

    Maybe i’m just finding
    my latest thrill

    Maybe i’ve set others up for the chills

    Maybe I’ll try standing up….

    To lift the seat and to be a man!

    all the SometimesSitter power to you Mike. Be careful though…sometimes a good hover is necessary in the NoWayAmISittingThere situations that Molly referred to. But that is what is nice about you SometimesSitters…you have the options. Who doesn’t want more options?!
