And that's all I remember about it

A while ago Dad and I watched one of those loud movies with guns and cars and men and a plot I can't follow. At some point, a man with a gun standing by a car motivated some other men with guns standing by cars by telling them that if they didn't do what he wanted them to do, he would see to it that they were assigned work which required them "to touch s*** with your bare hands."

Wow, that would be really awful.

Love your sense of humor.

We saw that movie. That line was the best thing about it.

So I might scrunch my nose whenever I rinse the diapers, and use way too much soap to wash my hands, but really, it's not THAT bad.

Maybe it's because I've never been a guy?

Can you imagine? How awful.
I'm still laughing.

Leah, four years ago a single male family member changed a (disposable!) diaper in my absence. He is still telling me how unutterably disgusting it was. :D

Leah said...

What is it about men? We're supposed to have the better noses. Why do we tolerate it so much better?

I've already got a car and bare hands and s***, so I think I need a gun. Then I could be like the whole movie in one person. Do they give awards for that?

Leah, I believe this falls under "You can get used to anything." While diapers as a matter of daily fact are merely disgusting, however, I will argue that diapers during pregnancy are plain cruel. And in all fairness, while my own kid's diapers don't exactly cheer me up, having to deal with another kid's diaper can put me in a foul mood for several days.

Shrew, I have many guns and no award.

I was going to mention that tolerance for diapers tends to be limited to the filial, but you beat me to it. And here I mentioned it anyway, just because I like typing so.

Shrew, you do need a gun. Every woman needs at least one, and (as far as I can make out) every man needs at least four dozen. So, you know, get on it.
