So...do you? (TMI & a Meme)

Frank Warren is the man behind the Post Secret web site. I saw him interviewed about a year ago & he said the most common secret he receives in the mail, hands down, is, "I pee in the shower." I thought it was hysterical.

My husband cannot abide this practice. When we were first married he told me the one rule he gave his older brother when Big BIL moved in with him. No peeing in the shower. Ever. I didn't think much of it except that he was so adamant about it.

A few months ago this discussion came up at some social event comprised mainly of his family. Why we were talking about peeing in the shower is beyond me, but Big BIL made a comment about Husband's rule. A cousin was gobsmacked. "But everybody pees in the shower! That's so weird." I laughed & Husband's head snapped around & looked at me. "You don't, do you?!" I said it didn't really matter since I only shower in the master bath & he only showers in the kids' bathroom...but then I admitted to doing it when absolutely necessary...like when I'm 9 months pregnant & my bladder is doing weird things or shortly after my c-sections when I couldn't tell when I had to pee until it was nearly too late. It's not a regular practice.

But it did get me thinking. Is my husband really odd in his thinking? Am I a total freak for my feelings on it? SO, I'm putting a poll in my side bar. I really don't expect you to comment on this & reveal your shower peeing preferences in public, but clicking the poll is completely anonymous. Please, click for me!

I can honestly say I have never gone in the shower. It just doesn't feel right. There was a sign at a public pool that said,"We don't swim in your pot, so don't pee in our pool".
Maybe I'm just weird like your husband.

I'm not afraid to say it...I pee in the shower. Not often, but anytime I feel the need and I'm mid-lather-rinse-repeat, I just let it go!
