Which is worse for you...Diet Coke or urine?
So yesterday after we dropped a change of clothes off to Todd at MIT for a meeting he had, we got stuck in the most horrendous traffic jam. What normally takes me 15 minutes took 2 hours. Anyway, the boys were very good considering the awful situation, but at one point Toby needed to go to the bathroom, so we did what we usually do and pulled out an empty Propel bottle for him to relieve himself in. He has grown quite accustomed to this way of potty breaks, as we don't like to pull over for it. Anyway, today I was running errands and going in and out of the car and kept saying to myself, "throw the propel bottle away," but my arms were always full. We picked up Todd from the train station this evening and when I cleared off the passenger seat for him I placed the urine-filled bottle in the cup holder. As Todd and I were catching each other up on our day I didn't notice that he grabbed the bottle and took a swig!!!!! You can imagine his reaction and then mine as he exclaimed, "Sick, this is gross, what is this?" I couldn't answer him for a good thirty seconds because I realized what he'd just done and was laughing and crying simultaneously. He quickly ran into the drug store and bought a Gatorade, but said it still tasted like pee. Next time I'll throw it away.
