We were hanging out around the fire in Algonquin Park when Natalie excused herself to go pee. A few minutes later I was ready to go on a rescue mission for her when she finally emerged from the pines. Natalie calmly explained that it always took her a while to pee in the woods because she had to get her shoes off, then take her pants and underwear off.
But weeing in front of another adult? Different story. This week I discovered that I work with a group of women who are fairly polarised on this topic.
I just got back from some amazing bicycle travel, part of it solo, in a remote region of Patagonia. It was like a backpacking trip on two wheels: spectacular, peaceful, and wild. Once accustomed to the solitude and self-reliance I felt strong, calm, and capable. I realized things had gotten a little weird, though, when I finally spent a night in a hostel in town.
Sometimes, when you are out backpacking, camping, or hiking, you find that you really have to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately, it seems that the more you need to use the restroom, the further away it is. This often leaves you little choice but to seek out your own restroom in the comforts of Mother Nature.
Last week I did something that will haunt me for years to come. As I was leaving my office to head to the meet-up, I told one of my co-workers where I was going and that just myself and the meeting organizer will be there so it might get awkward. She jokingly said that sounds like a great start to my next blog post.
Find some privacy. Then you need to find a low bush, rock, etc. Or, get a group of friends to create a privacy wall for you.
I remember one of the oh-so-serious story lines involving her two young boys peeing outside on one of the other wealthy characters gorgeously manicured front lawn. The other fancy-pants ladies were appalled for weeks. Well, the weather, finally, is nice outside and my almost five-year-old took his first al fresco pee last night.
