|This is me in the snow! See I am all ready to go to work, but now I am back home.|
Now on to the real reason for this blog post. Today, I would like to share with you, my experience with the Chinese squatty potty.
|This is a Chinese squatty potty.|
This first time that we went to China, Jon warned me about how the toilets in China are different than the toilets in the U.S. He told me how to use one and what to expect. I tried to prepare myself as much as one can. However, when we arrived in China and for the entire ten days we were there never once I did end up using a squatty potty.
I was so happy and felt like I had been victorious! Jon could not believe that many of the newer apartments that we went to did not have the traditional squatty potty. I on the other hand was glad to get out of the country without having to experience this toilet I had heard so much about.
That was not the case when we went to China this last time around for Christmas. The first night I was there I ended up using the squatty potty! I did not even know how to use it. It turned out I was squatting backwards and needed to turn around the other way to avoid splashing. I also learned from my sister-in-law that you should roll up your pants to avoid getting anything on your clothes.
Jon was very pleased that I had to use the squatty potty. As I told him about my experience he got a big smile on his face that I had finally given in and used this kind of toilet. Who knew that there are different kinds of toilets in the world? I never knew that until I met Jon. Thanks honey for broadening my perspective, as usual.
