Times like these, I really like Dora
Then she has to wake up and ruin it.
Dora: I have to use the bathroom
Sometimes, if I ignore her, she’ll wait at least an hour to ask again
Two hours later
Dora: I still have to use the bathroom
Me: You went like five hours ago. Can’t you hold it?
The only gas station on this 80 mile stretch of road
had no freak’n bathroom.
The only other bathroom we came across was too confusing.
So I made her just pop a squat on the road
Even though Dora’s pretty high maintenance when it comes to using the bathroom, she’s even worse when I have to use the bathroom. She complains about sitting on the bathroom floor while I go pee.
Luckily, I came across this sign one day that gave me a brilliant idea
until I saw the warning sign!
I was both horrified and utterly confused by this sign. Better safe than sorry. I found a new place for her to sit.
Dora: I don’t think I’m allowed to sit on this
Me: You would snitch on me, wouldn’t you?
Dora: No, I just don’t think it’s safe. I might catch on fire…again
Me: Real funny, smarty pants. You know that 4th of July fire wasn’t my fault. Here, sit here then. You can stare at me while I pee.
I noticed this sign behind her when she turned her head
and my maternal instinct kicked in. That Koala Seat was a death trap for a girl with an arm that falls off all the time.
So I came up with a new plan.
She could just sit on the floor in her carrying bag.
The day I came up with this idea was the best potty break day of Summer Tour 2009 EVER!
