Hi Guests and KuKd Mommas!
As we prepare to load up our bikes and head to Riga, the Latvian capital which we've heard is infested with drunk British frat boys, I thought I'd leave you with one quick tidbit to mull over. Something to lighten up the depressing tenor of my last post, in the spirit of totally embarrassing myself - my specialty.
Another side effect that I've had the joy of experiencing since KuKd#2 is that I can't hold my pee as long as I used to be able to. Ladies with babies, is this a baby-having thing? Or is it somehow stress-related (a favorite diagnosis of all my doctors)? Or am I just getting old? Whatever the cause, suffice to say that sneezing or laughing hard are sometimes, um, fraught with peril. And road trips with K are very much about the rest stops. I'm always aware of when the next one's coming.
My next idea for a new invention, other than a mouth guard with string that attaches to the ceiling so that it doesn't get lodged in your wind pipe (I'm calling it "Choke No More"), is what I would call a Ladies Travellin' Pee-Buddy. I've told some of you about this idea before, but allow me to explain again. Basically, it would be designed to allow frequently-peeing women to go on long road trips without stopping at rest stops every hour or two. It would consist of a suction-cup thingy that you sit directly on top of and pee into, with a plastic clear tube goes out the window, which is cracked open an inch. So when you had to go pee, you'd just go, right there in the car, and your urine would get siphoned automatically out the tube and out the window in a glistening stream. Brilliant!
Now, for the record, there is something similar on the market - but nothing that gives you that awesome siphoning action.
