Last night, the area just below my armpit, just above my bra strap was kind of itchy.  I scratched and heard a pop sound.  I guess I had either a pimple or ingrown hair that was infected...got a nice large splattering of green, yellow, and bloody pus in my hand.

Considering the size and location, I'm really surprised it didn't hurt before the explosion.

I get those every once in a while, don't hurt at all and then all of a sudden it is huge and explodes in spectacular fashion.

I had one on my inner thigh, that when I popped it while sitting on the toilet at work it hit the wall a good 6 feet away with a small blood clot.  I was impressed with myself.

I am glad "lung oyster" made you smile, DD!

DS is 15 (today!) and he is growing very impressive pimples (gorches). DH is responsible for checking all these things, but man, some of these are monumental!

This morning I walked into the kids' bathroom, to see that DS (almost 4) had somehow missed the toilet; it was all over the floor and the paper products in the waste can were soaked. I know this kid has better aim!

The sink was bone dry. Did I also mention that he was sitting down for breakfast when I discovered this? :P

When I asked him about it, he tried to blame his older sister. Yeah, nice try, bub.

Did you inform him that you are well aware of the differences in their anatomy?

My BFF and I have 2 boys each, and they all remembered to aim better when they were put on "clean the bathroom" duty for peeing everywhere. Yes, they were in the 4+ range when this happened. Toilet brush, not on your life. They were handed a bucket of warm water, with a rag, and made to wash the toilet, and the floor around it. This took a few times, especially when the cleaning routine started happening every time they missed. 

Have to say, for a while there, the toilet was never cleaner.

Oh, he will. We were in a rush that morning, so he got a pass.

Yup. I don't think it sank in, yet. He still sometimes sits down when he pees (backwards, facing the tank), and I think that he thinks that since DD also sits down, she must also stand up! :) His face had this surprised, "she doesn't!?!" look when I told him otherwise.

Yesterday I noticed a zipper bag with colorful blue and gold contents beside the road across from my driveway.  The traffic was heavy and I was busy so I left it there.  My garbage is picked up tomorrow, so I took the can to the end of the driveway tonight.  The traffic was relatively light so I crossed the street and picked up that bag.

The bag contained blue nitrile rubber gloves and gold condom wrappers.  It was well-sealed.  I picked it up by the zipper and threw in my trash can.  Then I came in and washed and sterilized my hand.

Ugh. I hate that.

We had a building in a less than wonderful part of town. When going there for meetings and training sessions, we never quite knew what we would find in the parking lot.

Used condoms. Check.
Syringes. Check.
Rubber tubing. Check.
Dirty underwear. Check.

I've seen all of those in various parks around every city I've lived in, and most cities I've visited. The worst part is that these aren't the "bad" parts of town, they're just...I don't know, easy to hide oneself in?

Actually, where I went to college there was a RiverFest every year, complete with symphony pops concert, lots of street vendors, and fireworks. All of downtown was packed full. Except the river was too polluted to swim in the entire time I was there. Invariably someone would be drunk enough to pee into the river and get arrested, and someone else would either fall in or jump in to try and swim and end up arrested and probably ill from it. I made sure to avoid the riverbanks entirely, lest I accidentally fall in from the crowd jostling me.

Now where I live there's a creek known as "Flush Creek" (not its actual name, but quite an accurate description) in a very high-end part of town. They offer glass-bottom boat tours and have waterfalls with spray along the walkway. I will never go near those areas, but some people pay good money to see what's in the creek, and apparently the waterfall spray is popular during the summer. Ew. Just...ew.

To be fair, Flush Creek has really improved in water quality since it earned that title. The Plaza stretch seems serene, even, not that Id want to take a glass-bottom tour. It is just a storm runoff, after all.

Syringes in a park?  Pfft.  I've seen them on the sidewalk, in front of my house.

For awhile I collected them, along with a friend. We'd drop em in a milk jug and take them to some charity operation that would take used needles in return for either clean ones, or $0.10 apiece.

We never made much, i think the best we did was twelve dollars once. But it was something to do and an excuse for us to wander around and chat. (we also collected cans and bottles. The cans were worth money from recycling, the bottles weren't, but as many kids running barefoot as our neighborhood had, we figured it was a public service.)
