Something personal

successA rather well-to-do and well dressed lady came in shortly after I’d tied Maggie up and gone into the ladies to de-paint myself.
She asked if ‘that lovely dog waiting so patiently outside’ was mine.
Maggie is fast becoming known as being well behaved, and people remember her name even when they can’t recall ours. This is actually normal for us!
I didn’t recognise her, and judging from her attire and the fact she was carrying a briefcase, I don’t think she was a berth holder.

As the woman closed a cubicle door behind her, we continued chatting whilst I scrubbed my hands and she went about her personal business. There were some interesting noises coming from behind her door and I thought ‘There was someone confident in themselves and things that come naturally’.
confidenceIt took me back to my International Banking days and one of the sweetest girls who worked in the office.
She was truly lovely in her naivety, and very popular.
However, she was extremely shy and easily embarrassed about any bodily function to such an extent that she would never use the loo if someone else was in there!
I’ve always found it difficult to ‘go’ in a field, which is why it became a standing joke about me needing a flush loo to perform.
I find it both amusing and fascinating that us women are so ‘reserved’ about our toilette habits whereas men just don’t seem at all bothered.
Mind you, with their directional plumbing, they don’t have the problem of lifting skirts, dropping tights and knickers and trying to keep their balance as they squat!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
