Pee Tip of the Day

If you're going to the bathroom in the middle of the night in a hotel, or other strange sleeping site, please feel free to turn on the lights, even it means waking other people up. Trust me. It's a good idea.

Yes, once upon a time a childhood friend of mine fully woke up (I guess she had walked into the bathroom in her sleep) to find that she was using a drawer instead of the toilet. Of course that is a totally different problem, because why would you turn the light on if you were sleep walking?

I have another pee tip. If you are staving off dehydration while traveling (you've had a gallon of water to offset the two cups of Starbucks), remember to go one last time before heading out for the evening, even if it's only supposed to be a 45-minute drive. Predictably, it will turn into a 1.25-hour drive because of backed-up traffic on the interstate, and every forseeable exit will be closed due to construction. You won't be able to jump the jersey wall and go in the woods, because you'll be in a seaside town with no woods...eventually you'll end up having to pee behind a trailer in a shady industrial section of town. Trust me, pee before you leave or have a disposable cup in the car for emergencies (even though the latter is gross.)

My question is, if you catch someone sleep walking and subsequently peeing in a drawer or perhaps on the wall in the middle of the hall in the guys dorm, is it considered uncouth to wake them?

Jay, tell us the story of the strange sleeping site.

Keiser, I dunno. That's a tough one. We'll leave that one to the masses to answer.

P.S. I kept seeing signs for Keizer when I was in Oregon last weekend!

The "Z" adds a cool flair.

According to a very reliable website (ok, I don't really know how reliable it is, but it had the words Med and sleepwalking), you can wake a person from sleepwalking. But you might want to be careful to avoid the spray - that would be grody.

Also, I think you have full rights to make fun of said night pee-er.

OK, the story? Here goes. We were at Biggins' wedding in DC (that's me, Kyle, Matt, Pete in the hotel room.) Matt and Kyle were sleeping on the floor in the room RIGHT in front of the bathroom door. Not only did I have to carefully step on them and look like Catherine Zeta-Jones in "Entrapment," I was afraid to turn on the light because it was RIGHT where they were. So, I felt around, lifted up the seat and thought I was OK. I started to pee, but heard no trickling. "Yikes," thought I. But then, I finally heard trickling. "Must've been peeing on the bowl, not the water," I said. But then I stopped hearing trickling again. By this point, I realize I must've peed 1/4 gallon on the floor, and I start laughing. Which means I start haphazardly peeing all OVER the bathroom. At this point I should've just peed in the bathtub, and my chortling awoke Matt and Kyle anyway. They wondered 1.) what was so funny, and 2.) why it sounded like I wasn't peeing IN the toilet. Oh, what a night.
