pStyle & P-Mate

When your bladder is at maximum capacity is usually when it’s the most inopportune time to actually go to the bathroom. Sometimes it’s because the only bathroom available is disgusting. Sometimes there is no bathroom at all. If you lack a penis, then your choices are to hold it or find a place to squat (and hope you don’t end up with wet shoes).

Luckily I don’t have to walk down that street too often or I would have a gelato gut by now (that would be in addition to my existing Buddha belly).

I’m not vegan or lactose intolerant, so I’ve never had any interest in all the non-dairy ice cream options out there. My friend Donna is a total foodie. She’s the one I go to whenever I have questions about anything involving food. Not only does she know the best tasting stuff, but she also knows which ones are best (or least bad) for your health.
