I was talking with one of the guys I work with yesterday and we got on the subject of having to shit at inopportune times. I don’t know why, but this seems to be a recurring conversation in my life. Anyway, he started telling me about the shits people would take while out on patrol in Iraq.
As it turns out one of his buddies shit himself while out on patrol. He couldn’t make it to the side of a house in time and just shit himself. Keep in mind they were on patrol in Iraq back in 2007 this dude just stripped down in the middle of the street and wiped himself off. It was unfortunate for everyone in his Humvee because he was the gunner. So, this guy had to sit in the gunners chair, naked from the waist down, until they could get back to base.
This story really hit home this morning while I was on a five mile run. I had to deviate the course and run into a portable toilet on a construction site. I got inside the thing and there was blue stuff everywhere, it looked like someone had killed a smurf inside the damn thing. The toilet paper was covered with the stuff too so I couldn’t wipe thoroughly. On the run back, the chaffing was out of control.
