Pee in the shower: Taboo or a God given rite of manhood?
I got caught, thanks to folly!
My wife of 11 years noticed the other morning that I had not used the toilet. She had noticed the lid was in the down position, I do not leave the lid down, and of this she is keenly aware. She confronted me like a lawyer would, knowing the answer to the questions, but asking the questions that can only lead to one ultimate answer. The one she wants, of which I am guilty.
As usual, I begin my torrid day by hitting snooze 8 times. At 5:27 A.M I rise, eyes crusty with the nights sleep. My brain is fogged and not fully awakened. The first thing I need to do in my morning ritual is the same as everyone else in the world. I am only assuming and making generalities, I don't know for a fact, but chances are good I am accurate. That need is of course the "Code Red" need to evacuate the bladder. The bladder becomes full as one sleeps for an extended period, but this is not always the case. Sometimes the bladder is only slightly filled and the urge to evacuate is not present when one awakens for a day of adventure.
On these non "Code Red" days I will go straight to the shower and get the water flowing. While the water is running to achieve the proper temperature and comfort level that I enjoy, I will brush my teeth and gargle with Scope. When this is done, I check the water temperature in the shower. If it is acceptable I begin my shower. First thing that I do in a shower is shampoo my hair. As the warm water flows through my hair and down to the drain, somewhere along the way it flows across my hidden "Code Red" evacuate the bladder button. When this button has been activated there is only one solution and that is my dilemma.
Being faced with this, I will make snap decision and let it fly into the drain. My wife says this is unsanitary and says I should get out of the shower and pee in the toilet.
This is a valuable time saver in the morning especially when one is running late.
Saved time by multi-tasking i.e.: Shampoo hair while peeing.
Safe operation as it is completely hands free.
Exiting the shower while wet and water is running substantially raises the all too real risk of a hip shattering fall or possibly a concussive impact to the head.
Everything gets wet including the toilet seat when an exit is made during a shower.
A risk of electrical shock.
Damn it is cold in the morning, even during summer months.
I welcome any input on this matter. Pro or Con, please help me convince my wife that my son and I have the God given rite of manhood to pee in the shower, and on ant hills.
