The thought of spending the day in 90 degree weather wearing pissed in depends would be enough to get me to skip Bonnaroo no matter how hard I thought AWOLNATION was going to rock the stage or how many fixtures 21 Pilots were going to climb.
Three! We were looking for the answer "three urine stained fixtures that 21 pilots would climb"
Okay guys...you're totally going to think I'm just f*cking around, but this is a serious question...
With drinking so much water (and liquor) at Roo, I constantly feel like I have to gulp. I probably gulp once every 10 seconds or so. I have a couple of shows this year that I'd killllll to be on the rail for, but that'll never happen if I'm having to gulp so much. I seriously think I just have a small throat. Being from Michigan and not used to the intense heat of a Tennessee summer (I like to use that as an excuse...in actuality, I'm just fat, haha), cutting down on water really isn't an option (not that any of you lovely people would suggest that) and I definitely enjoy my adult beverages while on The Farm. So what other things have people done in the past, if any? Maybe I just need to suck it up and give up the alcohol, haha. I've tried drinking more water than usual the last few weeks and I'm finding that I constantly need to gulp at home, too. (My thought process being that I could train my throat, haha).
I'M SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING WEARING DEPENDS AND JUST PISSING MYSELF.
Gulp Poncho. Carry around a plastic rain poncho, not see through, and when you have to gulp just throw it on. I normally use my beer cup, or one i find on the ground. If you fill it up, just gulp it off and pour it out, repeat. You can also resort to just kneeling and gulping straight on the ground depending on the surface you're on. Using the cup allows you to direct your gulp elsewhere away from where you are standing (to a degree). This will change your life, I promise.
Edit: This is quacking foolproof for males. You can literally gulp anywhere you want and no one would even think twice about what you're doing if they look at you (unless of course they find it odd you're wearing a poncho in 85 degree sunny weather). For females its a bit trickier, but the poncho acts like a curtain no one can see into, so you can sit down and adjust any way you might need.
Hi. My name is Sarah, and we have something in common – we both have to use a catheter. A catheter is a small tube that goes through your urethra to your bladder so you can pee. (My Mom is always telling me, “Sarah, say urinate,” but peeing is peeing, right?)
Wait! Let’s stop here for a minute. We’re already using big words like “urethra,” and before we go any further, you need to know what these words mean. So take a look at the box on the left, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
So now you know what catheter, urethra, bladder and other important words mean. Cool.
Before I tell you more, I know a lot of kids feel sad or scared about using a catheter. I felt like that when I started too. But if you read this book, talk to your doctor and use a catheter for a few days, then you’ll feel much better about it. Honest. You can also color the pictures in this book, and have fun with it.
I enjoy being outside, listening to music, and reading a good story. It’s fun to play a game of fetch with my dog Sadie, and I love to play soccer. I have a brother Sam. We get along most of the time, and we spend time practicing soccer together. (You may have noticed all of our names begin with “S.” My Mom – Susan, of course – says that’s because “S” stands for “Super!”)
OK, enough about me. But I want you to know that I use a catheter, and I do all these things and more!
I’ll be honest – when I first started peeing with a catheter, I didn’t like it. It felt kind of awkward and took a few days to get used to.
Now, I don’t mind, and I really like that I can go anywhere! I mean, now I can go to school, out to play, to the store, just about anywhere. And I also mean that I can pee almost anywhere, thanks to my catheter kit, which means I’m able to go everywhere! Feeling this way gives you so much more confidence and independence.
