View Full Version : The GOOD things about living with IC

Here's a few to start off.....feel free to contribute some more!
1. Next time you get pulled over for speeding, flash your "pee anywhere" card and tell them you were trying to reach a restroom. If needed, pour some water on the seat of your pants before hand. Goofy, but better than getting a $200 ticket.
2. You get to see all the interesting public bathrooms the world has to offer. Even better, you can become a restroom connoisseur. Anyone else think we should collectively write a book on the best(and worse) public restrooms of America???
3. Ok, I lost my train of thought here...I've been doing that quite frequently and I'm only nineteen... :hmm:
I know y'all can come up with some better ones....

Last year hubby and I went out to South Dakota (we live in WI). We drove, all 18 hours!! I know every potty stop from northern WI to Custer, SD. I can tell you, some were pretty nasty, but others were actually very nice. Maybe I'll help ya write that book you mention in #2 (no pun intended LOL) someday!

4.) You know where every good bathrom is in a five mile radius.

We live in Austin, and my family lives in Houston, I can tell you all the clean and DIRTY restrooms along highway 290!! Everytime we go and visit them, my husband asks me all the time, is it time to stop yet? I think one time, I actually made it down there without stopping once. (3 hour drive)!!

Any ideas for the title???
Lol! The travel channel actually did a show on best restrooms in the US - no kidding! too bad I didn't tape it!

I saw that show...
Ok, another good thing. I've gotten a new wardrobe, IC friendly, of course.

I saw that show...made my family watch it LOL!
A book title...how about, "Be Back In A Flush: The IC Traveler's Guide To Bathrooms" LOL!

LOL, Jess, that's great :biglaugh:
That'd be a really cool book. And it could go on sale in the ICN shop as well!

Chapter One: Can You Pass Me Some Toilet Paper? (How To Spot A Bad Bathroom) LOL

LOL I wish I traveled more, I'd love to make a list! I can say this: the first rest stop in Illinois from WI is VERY nice and clean LOL!

lol funny thing i seen a post on here about a week ago about the best and worse restroom in an america. they had the web site posted and all when i looked at the link
my first thoughts was it had to be an icer who did this.
i thought it was pretty cool.

I thought of another.....you get REALLY good at peeing in a cup.
LOL isn't that the truth. That can be 5:
5) Learning to pee in a cup without making a huge mess.
6) You learn humility pretty quickly.
7) Your co-workers never ask where you disappear to so you can take extra little breaks.
8) You never need to use the old and tired "l've got a headache" line when you are not in the mood.

lololol :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :biglaugh: I soooo loved reading this...so cheared me up. Got to admit it is pretty easy for me to get out of family events or Church projects I don't want to go to...So basically there is always an excuse for everything!
Oh, and if I don't want try a food I can always say I can't eat that, people always believe me!

OOH! You get to have interestingly-colored urine if you're on pyridium or urimax. Forget boring yellow....try green, blue, red, orange...I want purple....maybe I should ask the uro about mixing them JK LOL
