Funny Foto Friday: In public vs. in private

I can admit it, there are quite a few things that I do differently when other people are around.  When alone I'll scratch what needs to be scratched, I'll eat over the sink, and I'll even put on pants on occasion!  I got to thinking about how certain things are acceptable while running that are not acceptable otherwise.  Things like:
  • Blowing snot out of your head with nothing to catch it but the dude running beside you
  • Peeing behind bushes, in people's yard, under bridges....anywhere really
  • Eating 100 calorie packets of sugar and calling it "fuel"
  • Farting. Period.

It's really no wonder why I love running so much!

Anyway, recently I ran across a picture that showed me exactly how social interactions essentially keep men from turning into full on cavemen.  Happy Friday!

It is also appropriate to leave the bathroom door (stall) open in private!

Ha! The empty sink "washing your hands in private" made me LOL! I know that's what the men's room looks like at the bar I work at a lot of the time!

I think using port a potties are one thing that doesn't bother me as a runner, but horrifies and grosses me out when I'm not running.

That TV comparison has me written all over it. But who am I kidding, I look that way even in front of other people sometimes. It's just the way it is.

This definitely got a couple of genuine LOLs - enough for my husband to ask what I was laughing at.
