The long drive…

Back in high school, if I had to go to the bathroom for a #2, I used to drive home. I shit you not.

    Pooping in public toilets is okay, as long as you DON’T SIT ON THE SEAT. Same goes for peeing. You don’t want someone’s old pube crawling up your bum.

    I was a strictly home court player as well, until well into university when a stomach bug I picked up in Mexico forced me to reconsider my options, and incidentally resulted in a total paradigm shift. Now rather than being grossed out by public toilets, I am grossed out by the thought of inflicting olfactory violence on my own home – so now I’m all about the away game. I’m also a total weirdo.

    I was able to say that not ONCE, throughout elementary, junior high, high school OR university – nor any of my part time jobs – did I ever take a “smash” on the road – as Geoff put it so nicely. Then I got a blackberry, and the brickbreaker game has now allowed me to overcome my fears and take 45 minute breaks at work to get my score above 225,000.

    Thanks RIM for letting me out of my fecal fear prison!

    I now go in public. Well pseudo-public: at work. For the same reasons Diddy mentioned: to play brickbreaker, but also to catch up on my personal emails and texts on the blackberry.
