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

Your Say

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

An old Montanan once said that the worst thing about winter was trying to get a half inch of prick through four inches of wool.

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