I’m looking for ways to procrastinate on the transcription and thought another quick blog post could work.
I just wanted to warn people about this because, being not only unmentionable but embarassing, I doubt anyone else will:
Whatever you do, don’t ever, ever sit down on a paper toilet seat cover while you’re soaking wet. Ever. It’s like instantly coating your backside with a layer of papier mache and it’s very, very difficult to remove.
Especially when you discover the problem as you stand up in a narrow, public, bathroom stall with your bathing suit hanging around your knees and you panic because it won’t peel off and your feet start spreading too far apart as you try to reach around and under and through to try and rub it off your cheeks and thighs but it just disintegrates turning into a thousand, million little wet paper balls falling down to the floor like gray snow for anyone in the stalls on either side to glimpse causing them to wonder what the hell is she doing over there anyway and…what IS that?
You can’t get it all off without washing, BTW. You just can’t. It’s that sticky. The good news is that you, yourself, won’t be able to see all those ragged, little remnants of sanitary protection clinging to the back of your legs as you peek both ways before making a mad dash for the showers. You’re spared that lingering mental image at least.
On the other hand, if you ever want to make a piñata shaped like a butt, this could be an excellent way to begin.
(Can you believe it? You can find pictures of ANYTHING!!!! These lovelies are for sale over at Bigass Pinatas).
Oh. And P.S. Wet turns a once-sanitary paper toilet seat cover into a veritable delivery system for virus and bacteria so humiliation could be the least of your problems. It’s been two weeks and I’m still alive and wiggling so no harm done in my case. But you be careful out there. These things turn dangerous when cornered.

The world is filled with so many hidden dangers, most of them in public restrooms.
From ally to enemy with only a few drops of water. It was like bad magic.
Hahahe! Oh Dia, you do these things so we don’t have to, lol. Thanks for the heads up!
Yeah. Not quite sure how I reached my 50’s without figuring that one out! Seems so obvious now.
And to think I was worried about a “wide stance”…
I know. That flashed through my mind, too. 🙂 That poor man.
Who’d a thunk you could be attacked by a thin slice of paper in a public bathroom stall? Only you, Dia….I hope.
I always love to use natural seat covers even if they are very expensive. –
