Caught in the Act

I was talking to a good friend on the phone the other day. It went something like this:

Me: "How are you?"
Her: "Great! How are you?" At this time I could hear someone pounding on her front door.
Me: "Is this a bad time? Do you need to get the door?"
Her: "No, It's okay. I am just going to ignore it." Odd...but I didn't question. The pounding on the door didn't stop however. We continued our conversation when I heard her 4-year-old yell distinctly, "MOM! MOM! Are you done pooping yet? I really need you!"

....Silence......

Me: "Uhh....do you need to go? UHHH....I mean, do you need to help your son?" And then, I couldn't help myself, I started laughing--loud and obnoxiously.
Her: "Well, I guess there is no graceful way to get out of this one. I have been caught. Now you know what I do while talking to you on the phone." Honestly, too much info.
Me: "How were you going to explain the flush?"
Her: "Blame it on one of my kids. That is what I always do....." Good tip for the future!


I think she would benefit with a setup like this! Then she could really multi-task! You know who you are and I love you!

Share if you have had a similar situation..... :D

She must seriously be a busy person to need that get up!

Ah, we all do it... don't we? Some of us are just more discrete than others. I've decided that it's easier to let the person I'm talking to know up front than to try and hide it. Then at least there are no embarrassing questions when they hear the flush later.

I think there are probably some benefits in Potty-Talking! Just think how much money you might save each year just to cancel your subscriptions to Reader's Digest and Archie Comics! With the savings, you could install a phone-jack in your bathroom and have enough left over to upgrade from Cottenelle to Charmin - no coupons necessary!

I find it's much easier to be discrete while Potty-Blogging! Now if you'll excuse me... I need to flush and wash my hands.

I need to learn how to spell "discreet"... amongst other things. :P

Actually I have used the bathroom before while being on the phone, its my bathroom so I'll go flush later or if its my mom I'll flush she's done it before to me! My sister always says she's cleaning toilets if I hear a flush in the background.
Thats a funny story!!!

HAHAHA! That's stinkin funny (pun intended) I didn't know you had a blog! Though I WILL NOT be having 10 more kids, I do appreciate the compliment. Mind if I link your blog to mine?

I don't know who people think they are fooling. It's really not that hard to figure out when the person you are talking to is on the crapper. Between the obvious flush, the heavy breathing, and the occasional grunt, it is pretty easy to figure out.

Having said that, I still do it....

Gross Gary! I thought you were having an asthma attack.....buddy, if you have to work that hard, you need to get something to help. Ask Willy or Big C, they will steer you in the right direction! :D

And, for the record, I have never poo-ed while talking to you! ;D

Mummy is going to be so proud.....

stoner said...

Willy.....one request....tell me after you are finished. When you tell me upfront, I have the sound effects to go with the visual in my head.....not good! :D Who am I kidding? I don't care either way! My name is Linny...and I am disgusting.....

Jana said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog too. I will visit often... Thanks!

stoner said...
