When Mother Nature calls...

Thursday, April 12, 2012

You just have to listen. LOL Now before I get to the funny part let me just say that thanks to my daughter I now have a new trail to go hiking on. It doesn't have as many hills but it is beautiful and winds around the creek. The pup enjoyed it too.

I can't believe these places have been here all this time and no one ever told me. She has one more to take me too and if I like it too then I will have three places to choose from for hiking and that will keep them from getting old and stale!

Okay so now to the funny part. For whatever reason I can try to use the bathroom before I leave but it never fails that halfway through it always seems that Mother Nature calls me to go. I don't get it. I don't have regular bm and yet it seems when I get active it hits me that I have to go and it is never near a bathroom and is usually more than halfway from home or where the bathroom is! Okay so we are walking along and the first pains hit and I think no way. We go a little further and all of a sudden it hits me and there is no way I can make it back the 45 minutes we have already ventured. So I say to my daughter I can't hold it. I am gonna have to veer off the trail and into the woods and she starts laughing. I tell her it isn't funny (but it is) and start frantically searching for leaves that are safe and bigger. Of course there aren't any big ones nearby but guess what we find further down the trail? Oh yeah nice big fat ones! So I climb back into the woods and try to find a safe spot with no poison oak. I find a spot and a stick almost takes me out as I start to squat. Back on the path I can hear her chuckling. Not funny I yell! The only thing I can say is I guess all those years of living in the woods taught me how to survive emergency bathroom issues! LOL

Well needless to say other than the minor bathroom issue we had a great hike and it was a beautiful one also.

    I'm totally loving the view of that tree over the water. I'd be resting - lounging out on those branches. Making me anxious for a hike too.

    Only you could get into this kind of trouble on a hike, lol. I remember the days of camping and makeshift 'bathrooms', usually hanging my bum over a downed tree, lol. Usually had tp along though. OMG, too funny!
