The Grossest Story Ever Told…

This is embarassing, but must be shared:

In Xela, you are not supposed to put your toilet paper in the toilet. You are supposed to ball it up and put it in the trash can. The problem is, old habits die hard…and because I’m quite concerned about damaging people’s plumbing…I’ve had my hands in numerous Guatemalan toilets this week…damned toilet paper…soaks up water so fast!

My alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer have served me well, I’ll tell you what!

i’m telling you, GET A STICK. there’s no excuse at this point. you could probably even stash it in the bathroom somewhere, or stick it in your pocket. whatever works, you figure it out. any old twig should do. but you gotta make something do! my vote is a STICK.
