Many that love us helped us. A lot was at stake-massages, naked favors, the knowledge of being right.
For the record, Sky King thought that flushing, then reaching into a public toilet that I just BLEW UP, and using that water to repeatedly wash my ladybits with was his solution. Not only is that EEEEWWWW. But can you imagine what my potential stallmates would think? All they'd hear is:
"Oh. God." :::rumble, rumble, fart, gasp:::
"Ahhhh.....Wait, no paper?!?!? Are you fucking kidding me?!?!?!?"
:::digging through purse:::
:::garbled bad words:::
"Damn, that's cold!"
:::Flush, splash, splash:::
Seriously? Then I walk out, saunter over to the sink, and proceed to sanitize my hands and arms.
So, my thought was to remove my panties, using the outer fabric to wipe, ditching the panties in the feminine hygiene receptacle. Then, go commando the rest of the short trip to the mall. Easy-peasy. And, there was PLENTY of fabric. Its cottony softness would be lovely, I thought. But Sky King is worried about, apparently, our skyrocketing panty budget.
Fortunately, there was an ample supply of butt gaskets. Scratchy and not as absorbent as I would have liked, but I was not using the mall crapper as my personal birdbath. And, I got to keep panties on.
When I realized we were at a moral impasse, Sky King and I decided to rely on the amazing minds of the internet to help guide us.
The comments were better than the original post--I got them from text, from Facebook, from the original post, and from the updated post (note: I accidentally lost the first batch of comments from the original post, because I may have broken Disqus. Or Blogger.).
But, through the wonders of the internets, I was able to recreate and compile the entire batch of fabulousness, complete with my snarky additions. You're welcome.
Comments (with my replies in green):
- Toss the panties. Damn straight.
- Ditch the panties! I fell ya.
- Okay. You know I have much love for you. But I have to side with Sky King on this one. I think the idea of washing your ass with toilet water (even clean) and your hand is just a bridge too far for me. What can I say? I'm fecal phobic. On the plus side, if you're good enough at whatever he decides to claim as your prize, you could always sneak a professional massage onto the credit card! J- I am so glad I wrote the original post objectively enough that you thought I was not the panty ditcher. But now, I am alarmed that you would think I would wash my ass in toilet water. I'm conflicted. Shit.
- You sure have a way of saying the unspeakable! Thank you, I aim to please. I will be adding that to my resume'.
- I think I go with B. But I am not opposed to the butt gaskets as a first choice!!! You, my dear, are wrong.
- Jeesh! It is dinner time here in the east, just lost my appetite. P.S. My vote is to sacrifice the panties (socks too if you had them) C-Believe me, I would have sacrificed half my wardrobe to avoid a toilet ass-bath. Sorry about your dinner...
- I don't understand. One of those is a viable option and the other in completely disgusting! I agree!
- I don't care how clean it looks, I'm not sticking my hand in a toilet. Amen, sister.
- I'd have to say #1....#2 seems messier. Clearly, you are highly intelligent.
- I vote for option 2. but I have used butt gaskets in a pinch. Umm, no, Mom. Not okay. Now, I can't hug you anymore.
- $7 panties? Obviously you didn't have Joe and I buy them! That said, Option 1 is it. Even the men agree, J. And no, I buy my own panties. But I will certainly keep you in mind for the next 12-pack I need....
- Option 2, there is no guarantee you will get as clean as you want with the panties and may be forced to splash. While not an option, you could wait until the coast is clean and do the squat shuffle to the next stall for paper. Once again, no. NO. You and my mom seem to be in cahoots.
- Oh. My. God. I can't even... Ima go find my brain bleach. At least you don't LIVE my life, you only have to read about it. I toned it WAY down for general consumption.
- Ugh, no compassionate stall mates to plead a case to? Nope. Not a one. I almost screamed for Monkey Boy to come to my rescue. But there's no telling whether he would have helped-a 13-year-old boy, assisting his Mommy in the Ladies' room? Not likely.
- I think you need to be more comfortable in your nakedness and that Sky King needs to get better at Massages so I am technically going with neither, or is it both...Either way, I feel the need to use mouthwash...not sure why. Chicken.
- If I hypothetically was in such a situation, I would have to base my decision on what pants I was wearing. If I had on yoga pants, then yes, ditch the undies, and go commando. If I had on Jeans, or something more 'harsh', then there's no way I'm ditching the undies and I would go with option 2, and I might even try and sneak outside the stall and grab some paper towels and continue on. I was in a flowy, non-transparent maxi-dress. Perfect for panty-ditching.
- Panties are gone, just like college ;).....NO way I'd ever stick my hand in that water, let alone potentially catch some STD from that water by splashing it on my cooter! T-you speak of this like we know each other from 20+ years ago, when I was in college. That's not possible, I was a model student, and spent all my free time working hard and studying. Not skinny-dipping, drinking Quarter beers at McBurley's on Thirsty Thursdays, and doing the 7 AM walk of shame. Who are you????
Option 1 (ME!!!!!): 8 votes
Option 2(Sky King): 3 votes
I won't even address the fact that some of you didn't want to commit either way. Pansies.
Sky King and I exchanged texts over the results:
Still a win, in my book.
