TMI Thursday: I peed in my pants.

**Quick note: There is now a size 12 giveaway at the Bloggerhood of the Traveling Not So Fat Pants, so if you're newly into a size 12 and would like some pants to motivate you to get too skinny for them, come enter! Be sure to read all the rules before entering. :)

Okay. You guys, I've been waiting for something totally humiliating to happen to me, and I just don't have that kind of luck. What did I do this week? I weighed myself a lot, I ate some salad, I carved a pumpkin and I tried on some clothes. That's about it. Unless searching my house high and low for a tampon qualifies as TMI material, I need to reach into the archives and tell you something embarrassing from my past. And I'm not even really that embarrassed about it. I think the problem with TMI, for me, is that it takes a LOT to embarrass me. A lot. I mean, I whole lot.

With that, here we go.

TMI Thursday

I used to pee my pants on a weekly basis when I was in fourth grade. And now that I just typed that, I realize that some folks I used to go to elementary school with might read my blog (lovely Facebook) - so, this should be interesting.

I'm not talking about wetting the bed or peeing my pants because I just couldn't hold it anymore, teacher!... Nope. I peed myself because of my deep love and dedication to laughter and the fine art of comedy.

Okay. So, at my elementary school we had this thing on the playground called "The Rainbow." It looked just like the biggest one of these:

So, I used to climb up on that thing with two other kids and we used to just sit up there during recess and laugh, laugh, laugh, tell jokes, and laugh. I am not sure what the jokes were, but I'm pretty sure they revolved around pooping, and pee, and so it was only fitting that I peed myself while laughing about pee. You know those letter jokes where you say, "Spell 'eye cup." and the person concentrates and says, "I see you pee!" Apparently that was the crux of elementary humor, y'all. I laughed so hard every day we did that, that I pissed my pants. When recess was over, I'd begin the slow, wet walk back to my classroom, and I'd angle my butt toward the wall so the huge wet spot wouldn't show.

Luckily, I only pee myself nowadays in very small amounts, and it's few and far between. I never peed my pants in a public place as an adult, but a teeny bit would come out if I was laughing way too hard, or sometimes when I let out a wicked sneeze.

But I'm telling you, I just don't know how my Mom did all that laundry and didn't notice the pee smell, or if she noticed it and was just like, "There's no way I'm even going there, 'cause my daughter is WAY too old to be peeing her pants... I don't have the energy for this." I have no idea. But I know that smell. Damp, pee-pee-pants, kid smell. And that was me. And I am gross.

And on another note, I have been getting my face rocked off by all these blog awards from you guys. Thank you!!

Ashleigh gave me this friends award:

My lovely Sandra gave me the Superior Scribbler Award:

And Jeniel gave me this best blog award:

So holy crap balls, thanks you guys!

What I'd like to do instead of passing the awards around and telling people to tell us 30 things about themselves and write 30 other bloggers down... (if I followed all the rules of all these blog awards, it'd be a long, long day...) is I'm just gonna share some link love, and hopefully you'll find another blog to love. :)

Swish Embassy for those of you who support the LGBT community or like looking at hot guys.

Oh, and you know how I looked for a hula hoop with no success? (Check out this entry by my friend Beth, with instructions on how to make your own hula hoop!)

Mkay. First, thanks for the link love. Second, I have a bodily fluid story that includes 1 day, that dream where you are peeing on the toilet, a huge booger, and a shart. Oh yeah - and a marriage proposal.

So, if you're ever hard up for a good TMI story, lemme know.

The only time I ever got in trouble at school was for peeing outside as a kid. Whoopsie!

Veronica said...

I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your blog- especially TMI Thursdays. Whenever I'm having a crappy day, I look forward to reading your posts. I also love your photography (I'm a bit of photographer myself). You inspire me in many ways. Thanks for being you.

Ahahahaha! I hereby dub thee PeePants Magee for life. ;-)

Karen said...

I'm glad you've cut back on your accidental peeing. Now THAT'S progress :D

Also, I had a hard time finding a hula hoop a few years ago and ended up finding one at Toys R Us. INXS still reminds me of those hula workouts...

You crack me up!

When I was a little girl, I peed the bed and like an idiot, I panicked and told my mom. Well she was royally pissed off and while she was cleaning the mess up, I ran to my sister who was sleeping on the couch and hid under her blanket on the opposite end. My mom walked in and slapped my sister about 3 times and I remember my sister waking up and going, "What did I do?"! LMFAO Im laughing as I type this...anyways, so my mom was like, "Im sorry, I thought you were Monica..." And by that time, she had no anger left so I got away with it. Poor sister, though.

When I was 8 months pregnant with twins (30 years ago) I worked an hour from home. On the way home I had to pee but also had to stop at the grocery. Now remember this is 30 years ago and grocery stores really did not have public bathrooms and I was too embarrassed to ask. So, I am at the produce and just can't hold any longer. I thought "maybe if I just let a little out I will feel better". It was like a waterfall. I left the cart and just walked out. I was soooo wet I searched in the trunk for something to sit on.

Guuurl! Your blogs are like a Rothechild vintage bottle - amazing, always great and totally worth the anticipation!! Thank you for the lovely love!!! Again, you rule the school with your pee stain!
I have similar embarrasing stories about myself...including being so nervous about being late for school that many things happened to me (SOO not cool); being made fun of for wearing Lynx running shoes and being made fun of by Stacey Pukala (really..that is HIS name..and I was the one who got made fun of!!??..Stacey..I love you now..but the days of walking home crying because of my shoes were not cool); and the worst TMI ever...oh god, I dont think that I could say it..but after a night of "funness" having to mission impossible myself "out" of the "situation" because someone was passed out while still ____!!! WTF!!!

Anyhow, you know you are the cheese to my pizza, the filter in my cigarette, and the juniper in my gin! <3 ur blog - duh! hope you have a great week!!!

insatiablehost woot wooot!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who searches the house for a tampon. Why don't I just get in the car and go buy some? Nah...I know I have one stashed in a purse that I haven't used for a I'm SUPER lazy.

I peed my pants during a Twister game in 5th grade. WAAAAAAAAY too old to pee my pants, but when my mom came and picked me up she screamed at the other mom for so long that it was all the other kids talked about at school on Monday.

nic said...

I appreciate this post for everytime I've mentioned to a girlfriend that I "just peed a little," and she denies that it's ever happened to her.

Clearly that's bullshit. Thank you for making me feel a little less strange.

Lucy said...

I have had the same problem, only it has lasted my entire life! Yep, I am a 44 year old woman that if you get laughing too hard she pee's her pants and this has nothing to do with age and having kids. This happened in my teens, twenties, thirties, you get the point. My family loves it, just loves it. Their goal is to make me laugh at gatherings so hard so ...... yeah, weddings, baptisms, oh and even funerals they have no shame, none!
