Complaining added ten pounds to my figure

by Lynn on November 22, 2013

Do NOT go for a long drive after you guzzle a bottle of water.
Things will spiral out of your control in a matter of moments.

You see, construction guys love to torture folks with full bladders.
I complained about my discomfort to my fellow traveler.
In other words, my husband.

I begged him to stop at the next rest area.
I complained about how inconvenient it is to stay hydrated while traveling.
I promised to buy him something if he found me a rest room.

I felt  better after we stopped at the rest room.
I ate six donuts and drank another bottle of water.
In hindsight, maybe the water wasn’t such a good idea.

Next time while you’re guzzling that water make sure your husband has a large coffee. And maybe a bran muffin. I don’t mean to be crass, but the strategy here is to make sure he’s going to need to pull over too.

My husband doesn’t expect anything when we stop. He knew when we got married that frequent stopping was part of the deal. And I don’t even have to drink anything to need to stop … signed, owner of world’s smallest bladder. Sigh.

Other than that bit of unwanted sharing, I have nothing to offer except to endorse Christopher’s strategy.
