Yucky

I've been thinking a lot lately about how disgusting belt buckles are.

Usually, you go to the bathroom and flush and then do up your pants and belt buckle and then wash your hands. You do this because, in most places, you cannot go out with your pants undone and hanging around your knees to wash your hands. Privacy being one issue and walking like a penguin the other.

The consequence? Poop on your belt buckle. Not smears of it or anything (I mean, that's just gross) but residual poop matter.

These are the things that plague me, my friends.

  1. I actually just had this conversation on Friday night at Robin and Julia's potluck wedding reception. I called it the "poop is everywhere" talk.

  3. if you think about it - the same goes for pants, really.

    and i don't think it matters if you wash your hands before you pull your pants up or not. because, when you flush, all these lovely little germs get spewed into the air anyways.

    oh, and did you see the mythbusters where they were looking at the poop on the toothbrush theory? turns out that even in the kitchen, your toothbrush gets poop germs on it. icky.

  4. Ewww! Great, something else for me to obsess over!!! :-)

    Hey, I know - I'll start keeping some of those latex gloves in my purse and slip them on when I use the restroom, then trash them in the little kotex box!!

    VOila - I think you might be onto something here!!!

    LOL

  7. Let's think about it this way - if the germs were really that bad, we'd all be sick. We live around poop all the time.

    In fact, all the allergies kids are getting these days are because their environments are too sterile. Playing in poop keeps us healthy!

  9. I love poop conversations. I love it even more when Amanda (a health care professional) encourages us to play in poop. What a great world.

  11. I love that Ariann's comment had nothing to do with poop! How Arianny. Also, Kristin, I nearly bust a GUT laughing at the eric's belt thing. Woo. That was classic Kristin comedy.

  12. I was actually hoping that Kristin would make the comment about the teeth and the belt buckle. I was leaving it out there for her. I'm like her straight man. Or woman.
