The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Overheard

I'm at my coffee shop today, and there's a man, a woman and a little girl sitting next to me.

Man, to the little girl: I'm going to go potty now.
Woman, very loudly, as he gets up and starts to walk away: Make sure you hold it with two hands, or it'll go everywhere!

I ASSUME she was talking to the little girl, but, I mean ...

I'm just saying.

That was a totally a joke a comedian would do! We went to visit my mom at work on Saturday after a big meal out. I'm checking out some curtains, and he comes flying through asking if she had any catalogs or something to read. Quick!!!
I handed him a large leaflet on some custom blinds..and he happily trots back to bathroom...

My mom is puzzled at first and I just shrugged and said "He Has No Shame!"

GAH hahahaha That is too funny!

Although....when my kids were small I said some pretty goofy things outside of the house just because I was so used to talking to toddlers it was hard to switch to big people talk. Like when I needed to get past some people at the grocery store I said "beep beep" instead of "excuse me please". It was totally an accident...I swear.

god, I hope she didn't want the little girl to hold it with both hands, cuz why is she going potty with the man, anyway? I'm warped.

Ha ha ha ha ... OK, the GUY was going to the bathroom. I think MAYBE she was talking about the little girl's drink or something? I don't know. I just know what it SOUNDED like! Ha.

As for why a guy would refer to HIMSELF as going potty ... I mean, really.

Ew, ew, ew...Those are the kind of people that talk loudly on cell phones, don't you think?!

Very strange.

I announce it to everyone when I have to go. In fact, today at the grocery store, I had just had a coffee, and I felt it coming on, knowing I couldn't hold it, I went to the customer service desk and asked if I could use the intercom to tell everyone I had to poop.

Seriously, I did.

oh, so laughing out loud. Absolutely something I would say - I can only imagine how she felt when she realized she had said it out loud!
I have to say, after 4 kids - Mr. Farmer MIGHT say potty out loud in a crowded room. But I am not commiting to that answer.

Grown men who say potty scare me a bit
