Pooping abroad has been a real concern of mine. I don't want people to get the impression that I don't eat. I eat plenty and my body metabolizes the food pretty well. So well that I can have a nice healthy bowel movement sometimes three times a day. But I've got issues about bathrooms. I love my bathroom at home because I keep it very clean with Clorox wipes and toilet bowl cleaner. At work, we've got those nifty seat covers and a cleaning staff that tidy up the joint a couple times a day.
When I'm traveling through Asia though, my fear is that I'm going to eat something strange and have to deal with squat toilets
. I've read travel forums about these things and in some cases you're left with nothing to wipe except for your hand and a hose. Good times.
Pooping around the world is going to be a freeing experience. I've always admired my friends who have no shame in their bodily functions. I mean we all have to poop! It's as natural as breathing. For now. I will savor every moment on my private throne in Glendale.
