Diapers and Bodily Fluids


This morning I found myself standing in the middle of a Starbucks on the phone with my bank holding an adult diaper.

Peggy Lee is heading to New Jersey for a nuclear power plant outage, so Catherine G. gathered us--Peggy, Brett, Cat, and me--in Chadds Ford for a tiny bit of stitching and more shopping. But your still worried about the diaper, aren't you?

I made sure to endear myself to everyone by correcting their grammar, complaining about shopping while buying the most, and getting cranky when I wasn't fed promptly at noon. And you wonder why I don't have more friends.

We had, as always happens when stitchers get together, a great time. We talked about everything from morning wood to what a girl should wear in Atlantic City, from where teenage boys should jack off to how much sleep we need now that we're middle aged.

It was a delightful time, and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did, even though I was my usual pain in the ass self.

But still no explanation of why you were holding the adult diaper?
Talk about a bait-and-switch!!

I assume the explanation will follow (and I want ALL of the details!). Love your blog--

OMG! Say it ain't so, SB. Not you, too! ... But *you're* still worried about the adult diaper, aren't you? ...

I just assumed we all kept adult diapers at hand when talking to the bank about anything. Don't we? I mean, it's not just me, is it?

Oh my goodness! What a range of conversation and the one thing I really don't want to think about - teenage boys and that particular bodily function! Especially since two of my boys are nearly 12 and 13 1/2!

It sounds as if you had a good time together!

You never fail to leave me in stitches.

And what should a girl wear to Atlantic City? And how much sleep do we need? As for the others - I'm afraid of your answers.

Glad to hear you are the same in real life as your blog - you don't put on airs and you are who you are!

The diaper --- come on -- tell us!

Ahem. As someone who lived in AC (well, Margate, actually) for six years, I feel completely qualified to answer the question.

Gold. Lame'. Spandex.

(Oh wait. That was just me.)

P.S. LOVED the bank/adult diaper sentence. I think it should be the first line of your novel.

I've never held an adult diaper, but I sure wish I'd been there for that conversation. Can't wait to hear an explanation.
