A personal plumbing access failure

The thermometer registers 5 below zero Fahrenheit. So the kid is bundled up to the max.

Two pairs of wool socks. Underpants plus heavy-weight long-john bottoms. Turtle-neck heavy-weight long-john top. Wool trousers and wool sweater. Down vest. Down parka. Wind parka and wind pants. Two wool caps. Wool neck warmer. Snow goggles with dark lenses. Fleece-lined rubber-bottom mukluk-style arctic boots. And two pairs of Norwegian wool mittens. Alas, he has forgotten to make a prophylactic trip to the bathroom before he was all zipped up . . . When the urge hits him he will be way too far from the house . . . -- Robert Fulghum, OFFICIAL Website - Recent Entries

The problem is those snow goggles with dark lenses. Can't see to get unzipped and unsnapped.

That's the trouble with Montanans, they're all short dicked.
