Today I went rock climbing. Rock climbing is awesome, and so is my cup, to the point that I forgot about it until it got full and started leaking and I was like "OH RIGHT CUP." So I traipsed off to the bathroom to change my cup. La, la, la, away I go.
Now, I have hand strength issues due to carpal tunnel, and what with hanging off a wall for the last couple of hours, my hands were feeling a bit shaky.
I'm sure you know where this is going. Slip! Bloop! INTO THE TOILET BOWL. ;_; After much rooting around in the bottom of the toilet (which I now realize that since my pants were around my ankles, the 8-year-old girls hanging out around the seats TOTALLY COULD SEE MY ASS) I managed to get it out. OMG AHHHHHHHHHH.
What else could I do? I washed it with some soap (luckily they just had plain old bar soap, not moisturized crap) and stuffed it back in.
THIS WAS HOURS AGO AND I STILL FEEL DIRTY. AHHH
Now it's poll time.
So I live in Australia, but I'm originally American. One of the things I noticed upon moving here is that Australian toilets work differently. Instead of having a big bowl full of water, the water just lives at the bottom. (I remember them being like this in France, too.) My girlfriend and I were having a discussion about which kind of toilet it would be better to drop a menstrual cup in. In an American one, maybe you could snatch it from the top before anything too bad happens... but in an Australian one, there's a lot less water to root around in.
So what do you think?
Where's the worst place to drop your cup?
An American toilet
An Australian/European toilet
THEY BOTH SUCK SO, SO TERRIBLY
