Big Big SIGH!

This is going to border on crude, but we're all adults here and so... we'll deal.

Have you ever had to use the bathroom so badly, that you had to fight the urge to sigh upon finding relief?

Please.

If you answer no, you're lying. Everyone has been there.

So I went to the Assisted Living facility where Pop is living and before we went up to see him, I went into the downstairs restroom in the dining hall. (I refuse to use restrooms in his apartment. His apartment smells of disinfectant with a strong hint of urine. I'm too much of a germ phobe to use his bathrooms.)

I walked in and entering into the handicap stall was a woman who appeared to be in her 80s using a walker.

Side note: I say 80s as that looked like her melting stage. TGOO refers to the elderly as looking like they're melting. (For instance Pop swears he weighs 205 lb, but he still looks to me like he's the girth of his 230 (he's 5'5"). He is losing muscle and bone mass. TGOO says he's melting. That makes me laugh.)

So she walks into her stall, I go into mine, and I swear to you, she let out the largest sigh when she started to... relieve herself.

I nearly busted out laughing.

I want to get to the age where I don't care, where I'll gladly admit a sigh when my bladder is finally emptied.

It'll be the small things that make me smile.

Although... perhaps in your 80s... that is a rather large thing!

A good poop and I feel like a new man...or is that a "Newman"? (Seinfeld)

If I feel the urge to sigh, I just go ahead and sigh.

When it feels good, if feels good!

Shoot, I do that now and I'm nowhere near melting! I've even publically appologized to guys in the stalls next to me when I'm particularly vile.

Sigh? Sometimes I'm on the verge of passing out when I've had to hold my pee forever and finally get a chance to go. And a good dump just makes me want to take a nap. Yeah I know, TMI. But that's what you get for a bathroom post.

You live in a house with four males. You should hear that all the time. We start doing the sighing right after we've been potty trained.

My motto has always been: "Mingo ergo sum!" ("I pee, therefore I be.")
