ode to the squatties

Yeah sure I may have had dead ants in my toothbrush, a frog in my toilet, and slept on the sidewalk last week, but one of the hardest things I've had to get used to in SE Asia are squatty potties. But I'm proud to tell you that I'm no longer a squatty struggler. 

For those of you who haven't had the wonderful experience of getting low, a squatty potty is supposed to be bomb for at least three reasons:

  1. Health - lowers risk of constipation, hemorrhoids, colon disease, and helps with pelvic floor issues, says the squatty potty makers).
  2. Sanitation - think of how many butts have touched the last toilet you used. 
  3. Efficiency - no one is scrolling through any feeds on these mofos. See ya never bathroom line. 
 It's always best to face the wall to minimize splatter. You get used to it, promise.
