no assumptions?

so this happened: saturday night before they loaded me into an ambulance i said i wanted to squat and pee. the EMT said it wasn't in his plan.

he did, however, offer me both a bedpan and a urinal.

maybe i appear a little androgynous, and maybe this is just a courtesy of not assuming what kind of urinary apparatus a person has.

i hope it's that second thing, because simply offering both leaves no room for awkward corrections in a moment when you'd sort of hope you didn't have to go all gender conformity awareness on people.

i waited until i got to the hospital.

and when i peed there, i left a trail of mud and pine needles everywhere.

From what little I know about you, I'd expect you to leave a trail of mud and pine needles. But, why the ambulance ride? You ok?
