My son is finishing up his 30-day jail sentence, and we visited him yesterday. A lot of new prisoners have been brought in, and he now has a roommate, an older married guy my son says is “weird”. Being a concerned mom, I asked him how this guy is weird, and he said, “Because he sits down to pee, every time, and he wipes.”
Being a girl, this doesn’t seem weird to me. I said, “That’s not weird, your dad used to do that when he had to sit for a while. Maybe the guy is just modest, there in a cell with you.”
“No, Mom, he sits down every time he pees, even if he’s not taking a dump. He’s weird.”
My daughter laughed and said “You have to sit down to pee if you’ve got a hard-on,” and my son gave her a dirty look and said that wasn’t it. And since the guy wipes instead of shakes, he is doubly weird. So we spent a few lively minutes discussing what combination of mothering or wifely nagging has brought this poor man to this state. My son says he’s older (which means over 35) but not elderly.
So guys, is it really weird to always sit instead of stand? (I still think it’s a modesty thing in jail.) And how about the wiping?
