A Wee Problem

I'm thinking that if a woman of a certain age wets her pants just a teensy bit, timely damage control might be severely hampered if the woman happens to be wearing skinny jeans and tall boots. This, of course, is pure conjecture.

Hypothetically speaking of course. :)

Yes I agree, in theory of course. It's also one more reason to hate cold season. Typical sound associated with a sneeze used to be "aah-choo". Now it's "aah-choo...Damn!"

Skinny jeans, don't own them. Slender but curvy, yep, I have those!

I'm not a wetter, however, I had friends who can relate. I'm okay not being in that club with you, sister!

Sometimes I post with my name, sometimes I post as "Annonymous". This has me laughing so hard with complete comprehension and sympathetic weeing that I'll post as the latter! I may admit my wee problem to you in carpool, but never on your blog! Love you!

Things just are not the same as they used to be...and I am only 32! I was honestly worried in the movie theater last night because I was trying to hold it until the end. Ugh.

(Like a previous poster, I normally leave my name as well but will happily accept the opportunity to be anonymous for this one!)

I finally threw in the towel and started wearing Poise pads. Every day. You're lucky you can fit in skinny jeans and boots. Heck, I can't even fit in the boot,s much less the skinny jeans. But I'm armed with my beloved Poise pads, and that's all I need to get through the day.

Oh, I'm way too young for that! I'm barely potty trained.

Just had kid #5. Nuf said!

Well said.

This blog is the only place on God's green earth that I will admit that this lack of control happens to me also.

Interestingly enough, a couple years ago, I commented on one of your blog posts with the confession that I rarely wash pants.

Apparently, this blog is my most honest place, AND I just realized that my non-pants-washing ways are completely DISGUSTING having now admitted to my occasional lack of control.

Poise = woman of a certain age's best friend. Trampolines, on the other hand, are not.

Anna!! Haaahaaaaa!!! Reading THIS made me wee!! I had a similar thing happen, also in skinny jeans and tall boots:
Some actors can cry on cue. During a voice-over audition this weekend, the director asked me to "laugh so you wet your pants" on cue. I'm not sure he meant literally, but I did, and then I DID. Yeah...I am THAT good. ha

Gotcha.
No skinny jeans, but an everlasting love of caffeine mixed with dropping temperatures, and you will understand why I get mad if my husband lovingly slaps my butt...because sometimes I have been putting off yet another trip to the bathroom and I didn't need a jump start.

I would never admit that to him--he loves to come up with nicknames based on my foibles.

Not that this would ever happen ;) You're HILARIOUS.

Leah C said...

Yep...another reason for me NOT to wear skinny jeans:)

Rach said...

Oh my. Theoretically this would be SO bad. I'm so glad this didn't happen to you.

And to avoid ever facing such a scenario....one would want to be sure to NOT drink unlimited refills of unsweetened iced tea at lunch, talk for hours and then run errands. It would be a terrible combination.....phew, glad you dodged that one....

Aimee said...

Hehehe Reminded me of when I was pregnant without the skinny jeans!! I'll admit, I'm 42 and it does happen from time to time! Fortunately, I wasn't wearing my skinny jeans. You're a riot!!!! ;)

DawnGes said...

Ahhhhh, for years now I've been in the habit of going wee wee wee all the way home...

Jogging? Forget about it!:)

Lisa said...

Skinny jeans can cause a "wee bit" of a problem for so many women...or so I've been told. ;)

Victoria said...

Wasn't planning on commenting on every one of your posts by boy did this one resonate ;-) My immediate thought was trampolines too - my two y/o does not understand why I don't want to jump but I'm sure not going to explain it to him. And does anyone else have to stand completely still with their legs crossed when they sneeze to avoid the need for poise?! People in the grocery store must think I am so weird ...

Suzy said...

Had to post after Victoria. We are going to get a trampoline and I am totally going to jump on it! Don't let the weeee get in the way of going "wheeee", right?

My advice, apta.org, "find a PT", "women's specialist" to find a local PT who specializes in re-training the pelvic floor muscles, especially helpful as women get older or who have had kids. Those PT's are great!

This is the bane of my existence.

Oh, my word....I'm anonymous today, too.

I knew I wasn't alone, but I didn't realize there were so MANY of us!!!

Ahhh. To be a mom.

I am hoping that you peed a little because you were laughing super hard. I hope that more than you know.

Susan said...

Try having surprise baby #3 at almost 40. It ain't pretty I tell ya.
And I'm still wearing skinny jeans regardless.
Smiling!

Oh, I'm totally in the "have to stand completely still with legs crossed while sneezing" category. Thank you, 4-year-old twins, and a body that will never be the same. :o)

Amiee said...

I am no longer "skinny", so I don't wear skinny jeans, but I do understand where you are coming from! After having 3 kids, I can no longer jump on the trampoline. Yikes :/

I can soo relate...was on the phone with my sister last night and had one of those out-of-nowhere big sneezes, and had to excuse myself to change...which made her laugh so hard she ended up in a fresh pair of jeans herself. It was hilarious!

Amanda Marie said...

I'm only in my mid-twenties and sometimes when I get laughing, I have to do everything in my power not to pee myself. That's how I know something was REALLY funny.

I even do my kegels!! 2 kids in 14 month probably has something to do with that.. What I'm saying is.. no matter what the age - you're not alone! ;)

PeachPrenni said...

And you still have your sense of humor. Thank God for that!!

but if the jeans are dark...no problem! (coming from a friend who has to stop walking when she sneezes or coughs so as to not have leakage) :)

I 'suppose that gas that passes out much easier than it did in my youth is not really an issue like the wee problem you described. Hee heee heee!

Good thing I've got more of a sense of humor now as this aging thing is hard some days!
