A friend of mine just recounted to me a story which I would have found absolutely hilarious…okay, strike that, I still found it absolutely hilarious, even though something similar had happened to me. You know how it is when we were growing up and you are dreaming and in your dream you are playing with your friends and suddenly you feel like peeing and after you are done peeing your realise that you just wet the bed 😦
So it happened that this couple went to bed at night. The husband had given the wife a cup of water before they slept which she left by the bedside. They went to bed and sometime during the night, the wife found herself at a friends place. She was pressed and decided to go relieve herself at a corner. She bent over and started peeing but the pee was taking too long to finish. So she decided to go find a toilet. Unfortunately for her, the toilet she found was messed up, but she couldn’t hold on to the pee any longer, so she squatted at a corner and she completely relieved herself…then the realisation as she awoke and found herself soaked in pee. She had been dreaming!
So, you find it excusable when it’s a kid involved. I mean, some parents make a fuss about bed wetting when a child is two years old. You can imagine how it would look when it is a parent involved.
She just wanted to hide and clean it all up before anyone found out but no, her husband awoke and touched the bed. His question: What happened here? Sharp woman turned to the empty glass and started raking about how someone left a cup of water lying around. Her poor husband felt really bad since he was the one who had brought the water. he rose from the bed apologising. She quickly started scrubbing the bed with everything available so he wouldn’t see the level of the damage and then he suddenly returns looks at the level of wetness and asks: are you sure this is just a glass of water?
Okay, this is totally not an isolated event. Parents these days are taking to bed wetting and they are pinning it on everyone available including their kids. As happened in this family.
Turns out it was the father who was guilty of bed wetting. Well, as usual, he felt like peeing in his dream and he did it to the full only to wake and realise he had done it on the bed. He felt so embarrassed. Fortunately for him though, his wife had just had a baby so he just moved the baby over to the pee zone and took the dry part of the bed. Only he forgot that a baby wearing diaper had to wet the diaper first before conquering the bed. The rest is why we have this story 😐
These embarrassing pee tales wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t add one of my own. Remember that if you laugh at me, someone will laugh at you too :p
So I have this rather not too good habit of holding back pee. Also, I would rather not use anyone’s convenience. There is something about me and my toilet. We have such a loving relationship. Right from when I was a kid, the toilet was a cool place to hang out. I mean, just take a book and go hang out in the toilet :|. I do not trust other toilets, so if I felt like number 1 out of my home, I will hold it till I got home to my toilet (interestingly, my toilet is blessed with the best internet reception, so…you get the drift, yeah?)
So on this particular day, I decided as usual to hold back peeing outside the house. I biked all the way home and well, while sitting there is no danger of a leaking bladder. The moment I got off the bike at the estate gate though, I felt the sudden rush. I managed to walk as decently as I could with a plastered smile as I passed neighbours and threw greetings at them. I could feel one or two drops but nothing mega I thought. The moment, I passed the neighbours, all decency was lost. I ran the rest of the way as my bladder was almost bursting.
Then I arrived at the gate and the there was no one home. I started looking for my keys and the key chose to play hide and seek. I was doing a very weird rendition of a cross between Michael Jackson’s moonwalk and break dance trying not to let the things get too bad. By the time I found the keys and started trying the padlock the dam had broken…and I just let it rain…
