5 Thoughts Every Woman Has In A Public Restroom

5 Thoughts Every Woman Has In A Public Restroom

The hilarious yet slightly disturbing truth.

Going to the bathroom can be one of the best feelings in the world. This can be applicable whether you were enduring a long, bumpy car ride after consuming a Mega Buddy from the gas station, or you just simply needed to get away from anyone and everything. The fact of the matter is, the bathroom, contrary to it's sometimes dirty connotation, can be one of the most highly anticipated places to go during a day. Now over my years I've come to one, solid conclusion. Sometimes, the funniest most awkward stories I have to tell come from being on the toilet. Before you get immediately turned off from this initial thought, I encourage you to keep an open mind when reading further being that these "toilet thoughts" are almost certain to have pertained to you at least once in your life before.

1. The historically famous pee-off.

We've all been here before. You're in the stall far left and the stranger on your far right. It's dead silent, each of you waiting to see who's going to break the seal first. The anticipation building, because God forbid your stream begins first. Who's it going to be? Definitely not you. What was supposed to be a two minute potty break turned into a full on fifteen minute stare off, if you will.

2. The gassy encounter.

This is one of my all time favorites. You're sitting on the toilet, doing your thing, and in running, huffing and puffing, comes someone who clearly has held it all in just a little too long. Let's just say what happens next shouldn't and won't be put into words, leaving it up to your imagination creates a far better effect. Needless to say, you are left thinking, "what in God's green earth did that person eat today at lunch?" and doing everything to suppress your laughter.

3. YOUR gassy accident.

I don't care how girly and classy you may be, we've ALL had to try and go to the bathroom so slow, attempting to do whatever it takes to make sure we don't let something rip to save us the embarrassment of public farting. This one isn't easy when you taco night the evening before, but you gotta do what you gotta do. This is when the old flush and toot comes in really handy; thank the heavens for automatic toilets.

4. No more toilet paper.

This will scare the wits out of even the bravest woman. It's what everyone dreads. Mid stream and you realize that you, in fact, are out of toilet paper. You have three options the way I see it. One, the all natural air dry. Two, stick your hand under the stall to the stranger next to you and ask for some help. Or three, flush then run, bottomless, as fast as you can to the next closest stall and hope to hell no one sees you. I'm not proud to admit it, but I've more than definitely done all three options.

5. Toilet talk.

Whether you're the one being talked to or you are ease dropping on someone else's conversation, this can be highly engaging yet extremely awkward. Do you reply? Do you say something to break the silence? Who knows, all you do know is talking doesn't really seem appropriate in this kind of situation.

Needless to say, the bathroom is a room full of many possibilities. Whether you encounter a situation like that of the food poisoning scene from "Bridesmaids" or partake in a silent but deadly, butt to butt, pee off, the toilet seems to be unpredictable but hilarious at best.

What Rescuing a Dog Taught Me About My Future

She was a real pain to begin with, but I wouldn't give her up for the world now.


My first dog came from a breeder to us when he was just a puppy. I was in third grade so we were both young together. I remember stepping off of the bus and seeing him curled up in my mom's arms. His breed, a Cavalier King Charles, is a highly sought after dog for their small size and beautiful markings. However, dog breeding can lead to medical complications down the line. Heart murmurs are very frequent as cavaliers get older. When he turned 9 years old, they were already detecting the beginning of a heart murmur in him. But my second dog didn't come to us in quite the same way.

Willow was about a year old. She was rescued from an abusive home where she had to fight for her food from many other dogs. This made her guard resources and distrustful of us. My mom and I begged the rest of our family for the ability to adopt her, and they finally agreed. Being not potty trained, we had to teach her with a lot of positive encouragement when she went pee in the right place (not our carpet). It took her a while to realize that we weren't going to take her food away and she gradually became less resource guarding. She started to trust my other dog more and play with him. A lot of the time, they even snuggle together now.

At the time, I was in my junior year of high school and still thinking about the idea of becoming a veterinarian. She helped me decide to go for it, and now I'm in college and getting ready to apply for veterinary school. Willow has become part of our family, and her funny and unique personality fit right in with us.
