Where have you peed?!

Yes, I realize that my blog has quickly gone "to pot" with all of the posts of restroom talk as of late but I wanted to share this story.

This morning as I searched through Tyler's closet for some clothes for him to wear I smelled a strong urine smell. I asked him if he'd peed in his closet last night. He said that Oscar peed in his closet. Obviously this was NOT an animal (one of the four legged persuasion, anyhow).

Fast forward to our arrival to the house this afternoon. I had forgotten about the smell. I am preparing dinner when Tyler brings me a play cell phone and asks why his phone was wet. I hold out my hand and ask him where it was. He says it came from his closet. I immediately flashed back to this morning's conversation and sniffed the phone. Oh yes, it was covered in urine! I put the phone in the sink, washed my hands and grabbed the floor cleaner and told him to show me where the phone was. I sniffed all around and could not find anything else that had this strong smell. I was a bit perplexed because I realized that with urine dripping from the thing there had to be a pool of it somewhere.

I threw away the phone, scrubbed my hands and went back to dinner preperation and was once again interrupted by my three year old son. He said that his toy truck and four wheeler were "stinky". I smelled them and said show me where you got them. He took me to his room and pointed to a small plastic drawer that slides in and out of his toy box. THIS was the culprit. I had found my small pool of urine that he claimed was in the closet. Obviously this was not the work of a dog.

My guess is that he woke up in the middle of the night and probably half asleep needed to pee, so he relieved himself in the toy container thinking that he was in the restroom. I think that everyone has probably done this at some point in time. I know that once Shelby peed in her floor on some toys one night. Hubby (when he was a kid of course) peed in the closet. Myself, I don't remember peeing in an odd place, but I'm sure I did. I'll have to ask my mother.  What strange places have YOU peed?!

I'm pretty sure I've never peed anywhere out of the ordinary but this reminds me of the time we were staying at my grandmother-in-law's house out in California and I woke up to find Michael peeing in one of the corners of the bedroom in the basement where we were staying. I don't believe he has any memory of it at all and had no idea the next morning that he had even done it. Must be a guy thing!

My oldest son when he was younger did that in a drawer too. I want to say on his floor too. Yuck!! Like you said he may have been half a sleep when he did it.

LOL...this is a funny thing to ponder.
I do remember ice fishing many years ago and having to pee so badly...now realize...ice fishing demands what is called a snowsuit...which is a one piece outfit not readily removable to pee in the middle of nowhere in the middle of winter...my partner at the time promised that no one was anywhere around and that I should just squat behind the snow machine...well I did just that as I was becoming very desperate...as I was right in the middle of my oh so relieving trickle...ZOOOOOM...goes by another snow machine and another and another...:((((
There I was smiling at everyone squatting down and wandering which would be worse...staying put or standing up and giving a full view...needless to say that was my strangest pee episode:)

I know of an adult male who, while drunk, peed in the corner of his bedroom...as for myself, I don't think I've peed anywhere weird.

My brother was notorious for this exact thing... and for taking ALL of his clothes off to go to the bathroom, no matter where we were. The best is you could follow the trail of clothes right to the bathroom most times. Not so great if you're at the mall or somewhere else in public.

My dad also tells a similar story of when my older cousin would sleep over, one night my dad found him just before he peed in the coat closet in the living room, thinking of course he made it the 15 feet down the hall to the bathroom. The doors were similar, lol.

I don't think that I've actually ever peed anywhere weird. I've been tempted, though!

When I was like 14, I had just moved upstairs into my attic bedroom - and it had stairs that folded down/up. I got up in the middle of the night to pee once, and my stepfather had put the stairs up when he had gone to bed.
I was trapped up in my room!
Fortunately, there was a box of mason canning jars there in the attic part of my room, and I was able to relieve myself in a jar. Then when my mom pulled down the box to can tomatoes a few days later she was like "OH MY GOD what IS that SMELL?!?"
Oops.

Probably at the house of this weirdo guy I knew in college. Oh, you meant someplace "odd"....*grin*

Boys are so much different than girls...i don't know if I could raise boys who pee in strange corners. LOL

Can't think of anywhere cool I've peed...unless you count like in the Caribbean Sea.
