Just never you MIND how I know — I JUST KNOW!

Don't ask me HOW I know -- but, oh boy, DO I KNOW!!  #funny @SoThenStories.com

So then…I capture your attention to make a crucial Public Service Announcement.

When you become a person of a certain age, and you think you might need to pee…

Go pee. Go pee right that moment.

Don’t hold it.

Don’t wait.

Don’t think, “Oh, I have time. This is just the initial tingling. My bladder’s a sturdy beast. I’ve waited much longer before I’ve really needed to go.”

And whatever you do, don’t drink more liquid while pleasantly biding your time.

Just find a restroom right away.

And take care of yo’ bidness.

At the first inkling you think you should be tinkling, just go.

Do not wait.

Because you may not make it.


Take my word for it.


Just never you mind how I know.


I just know.


It doesn’t matter how I know.


Omigod, why are you so obsessed with me?









Just trust me.

    Yeaaaaaa, we are gonna have to know more. TMI is not a part of your lexicon.

    • HA! Right, Arionis? Usually I’m more than happy to spill the details…

  2. Riiiight… There are some things you just “know”. Without having to go through it yourself. It’s just common knowledge, really. No need to explain. Not that you have anything to explain, I mean.

    • BLESS YOU, Vinny! You get it. You totally get it.

    Also very important; never assume that pressure you are feeling is gas, never push out what you think is gas. Keep it in and go to the toilet. … … … I also won’t be discussing how I know this.

    I was just feeling sorry for myself because I let it go too long before scheduling a hair cut and then butchered my hair, on my own, in the bathroom. (Because.it.was.driving.me.NUTS!)

    This certainly puts it in perspective!…Now I can say, “Well, at least I didn’t…” while strengthening your point to act immediately when you get certain “feelings.”

    Also, never trust that it is just gas.

    Ahhh, yes. It is depressing how our bodies stop working the way they used to. On the positive side, we are much wiser – aren’t we? (Tell me yes, it is all I have to cling to.) :D

    • Yes. Uh-huh. Sure. Yep.
      (Ah Lawdy – I HOPE so!)

  7. What’s really fun is when you realize, at the same time, that you have to pee and you have to sneeze!

    Am I the only one who had to go pee before reading the entire post? That power of suggestion early on in the story…

    • Bwahahaha! I mesmerized you!
      “Listen closely…send me all your cash money…then go pee…”

    Pft, I’m twenty nine, and I know if I gotta go, dude I got. to. go.

    • You are wise beyond your years, woman!
      I thought just maybe, just MAYBE I still had time. But nope!


    I am NOT laughing AT you. I am laughing WITH you.

    • As long as you’re also PEEING with me, then all’s good.

  11. Hey, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go! Those 5am pee pee wake up calls really suck though.

    Hope you and your family have a great July 4th weekend! Enjoy and have fun.

    • Thanks, Phil – you too! Looks like you’re enjoying all the good eats – and drinks – of the holiday weekend! :)

  12. Oh Jesus. Please tell me what this certain age is?! I don’t want this to happen to me!

    • How old are you right now? Add 1 week. THAT is the certain age.

    And if you have a cold which involves sneezing….get to the bathroom before the inkling. Don’t ask me how I know…….
