Papier du toilet

By , April 27, 2010 1:34 am

“I need to pee I need to pee I need to PEE!”

I came running into the apartment, dropping my purse and jacket on the dining room table and yelling a brief “Hello” to my roommate in the kitchen. She yelled back, “We’re out of toilet paper!”

“So?” I replied, “I’m peeing.” I almost instantly realized what had happened, and laughed. When I came out, I said to her, “Yeah, I’m still a shaker, not a wiper. Standing up to pee is awesome. But I think it’s really sweet you forgot that!”

Her reply, “Well, I don’t know your routine!” just made me laugh harder.

(I make no apologies for my utter fail at French. It’s one of the many languages I was unable to learn in school.)

  1. Recently one of my five best friends (male, cis) asked another (female, trans), evidently out of unbearable (and in my opinion, hilarious) curiosity, whether she pees sitting down or standing up. Her answer was the same as mine is: standing up, because hell, why not? I think there are few enough advantages to being a transwoman that it’s a bit silly not to make use of them, presuming the idea doesn’t cause one any feelings of dissonance.

      Hia MalkuthaSephira. I agree that questions like that are really funny. I had a similar situation once, where I was with a bunch of friends at the beach. Everyone needed to pee, but only the boys were able/willing to use the disgusting porta-potties. Well, all the boys and ME!

      Peeing standing up rocks.
