In a nutshell, Nina’s ridiculously awesome post goes like this, “Seat Assignment: Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style: While in the lavatory on a domestic flight in March 2010, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet cover seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror using my cellphone.” That is THE BEST QUOTE EVER. EVER!
So while Mo was
at work at an undisclosed location’s restroom, she sent me a text with her self-potty shot. I busted a kidney laughing so hard. Shortly after Mo’s world’s-most-awesome text, I was in Trader Joe’s and went to the restroom to try my hand at a potty shot. I giggled, and giggled, and giggled, and this is my result:
I don’t know how to pull off the Flemish look, so I just tried to look serious. And it’s damn HARD to look serious when you’re giggling and cracking your S up. But I think I pulled off a rockin’ bunny suit look and look like I just developed the zombie antidote for The Walking Dead cast.
Later that night at sewing circle, I say to Mo, “I need to go to the bathroom [wink, wink], wanna come with me?” - so off we go to the building’s restroom. Heather comes along too, no knowing what Mo and I are up to. Mo heads one stall for “wardrobe”, I to another. And before we know it… we’re freak Heather out into THE ultimate OMG moment!
Mo and I look like we got caught escaping from somewhere that escaping is frowned upon. We had so much fun. Incredible, crazy fun. Like playing a grand prank, but no one gets hurts and nothing gets damaged. When we got back to circle, we showed our friends the potty pics, and gut splitting, side hurting laughing ensued. I won’t name names, but soon there were more potty pics zipping through the internet tunnels.
There’s something so fun about this and I HIGHLY recommend everyone who’s got a camera, a public restroom and a potty-protector sheet to take a potty pic! It will be a very long time before I ever walk into a public restroom and not crack up. It feels SO GOOD to do something some dumb, so childish, so weird, so embarrassing. In a weird way, it’s kind of empowering. I think anytime I’m scared to do something, and then do it - I feel very empowered. And with that said, last night at the grocery store I slipped into the restroom and had some fun. I was giggling like a school-girl all the way out the store. And in my car. And when I got home…
I didn’t know what I was going to get until afterwards. I’m going with Ninja on one, but unsure what the other one ended up being. Sigh, I love this game! I’m really hoping others will play along, too (I’m going to tag my pics with #pottypicfun on flickr, and hope it catches on!). And I’m hoping my girlfriends will show their potty pics - they are just too good not to be seen!
