This is not my shower head, although I do have a military issue gas mask that closely resembles the one pictured here.
A few years ago a moderator for an online group I belong to took an unscientific poll of the members to see who pees in the shower. Of course everyone said that they pee in the shower. But that got me to thinking...I don't stand in the toilet, why would I pee in the shower and think nothing of it? And I certainly don't pee if I'm taking a bath. That's just disgusting, sloshing around in my own filth.
So, why is peeing in the shower acceptable, or at least common, behavior? I even have a chick friend who practiced the technique for peeing while standing when she showered (she never mastered it, it's extremely difficult to correctly guide the stream without it just spraying all over the place - at least that's what she claimed. I never tried it myself. I can barely squat outside and not pee on my shoes).
There's just so much to consider in this rich pageant called life. And now I have to take a shower.
