On Pissing Outside

The good ol' days, when men were men.

In this age of constant, bustling communications, commutes, insipid work-day routines and after-work duties we have lost a bit of our humanity, nay, we run the danger of completely losing our identities. When do men find themselves outdoors, away from the world, and in need of a piss? Very rarely, I venture to say. Why? I will not delve into the why. The Why is too vague in its immensity.  That debate is for another time.

It means something when a man has to piss and his first instinct is to let it out. Then the crushing Thought arrives: “I can’t just whip it out and piss here. Someone might see me! It may cause them to frown upon me and think bad things!”

Well, who really gives a shit? Do you give a shit that that old, wrinkly lady, the one who hasn’t been fucked in years and years, rears her head back in disapproval and gives a little shriek? If you do then…you may be forgiven. She could wave down a nearby mall cop and have you busted before you even shake the last few drops free. Indeed it’s hard—and quite possibly unhealthy– to stop a steady stream once begun; and one also runs the risk of pissing oneself while leading a desperate foot chase, giving the appearance of a soiled pervert with authorities in hot pursuit. Fair game for some Upright Citizen to blindside a chap as a civic duty. But my god man, piss somewhere. Fulfill the primordial tinkle in your soul and get a bit back in touch with the male Self. I promise: it will lead somewhere. You will gain back a degree of independence.  You will loosen the shackles that bind you to the drudgery of only letting loose behind the door of that little room in your dwelling devoted to these activities, hovering over and aiming for the oval ring of porcelain .  I say, piss outside the lines.

This brings to mind the etiquette involved in such pursuits as freely pissing where one wants, when one wants. Like smoking pot in Amsterdam where one only smokes in the coffee shops, the parks out of view or indoors privately—never as an exhibition around families and the public at large (It must be noted that Amsterdam also has those lovely green Pissoirs stationed on street corners where one can dart in, his mid-calf down visible to all, and piss right on the street).

One has to strike a balance between social responsibility on one hand and the pursuit of individual rights on the other. One must have a bit of class and discretion. Walk into your front yard at night, perhaps as you let the dog out, and find a corner shaded from streetlights and neighbor’s windows. Make sure there’s no headlights oncoming and enjoy a good evening piss. Mark your territory. Your dog will be overjoyed seeing this and will probably come and take a piss somewhere in the vicinity of yours. How close to or on top of yours can dictate if he or she holds you as Alpha or not. If your dog pisses right on your spot, you obviously have some problems and should at the very least start pissing outside with more abandon and frequency. One’s hound must always be subservient. If all else fails, I suggest taking the beast down on its back with lightning fast ferocity and applying a good bite to the throat area. You may have to repeat once or more, depending on the level of insolence. But that is a Dog Behavior column, and will come later.

The important thing is that the American Man regains the feeling in his ball-sack. That he has a pair. When he has no doubt they’re dangling there, all these terrible problems that seemingly beset us on all sides can be stared at straight on with confidence. And pissed on.

The Nostril Abroad

It is times like the never ending today’s that we all ponder about the quality of life we target, and the reality of where we truly stand. Am I happy? I’m not asking myself, I’m the voice in your head who ever so often screams for confirmation, confirmation that what you are doing with your life is who you truly are, or are you living a life that you would gladly trade with someone else.

For starters I have to mention that the grass on the other side may not be greener, but instead there may be more of it.

The publisher of this Stinky Blog asked me to iterate a bit on ex-patriotism, this I shall do but first I would like you to understand that the term “ex-patriotism” is nothing more than political propaganda aimed at creating guilt amongst the populous so they don’t choose another life location.

I for one am appreciative for what my country have done for me and always will be, but I realized that what my country has to offer are nothing more than services. What I mean is that you can get a cheeseburger in 30 seconds, have the fastest internet service, air-conditioning in every store you walk in, nine hundred cable television stations, but is that quality of life or are we living in a gigantic happy meal box filled with temporary mind bending gadgets and illusions.

You must ask yourself; once you reach the outer limits of your “service” area, are you surrounded by the subtle but more important things in life that truly fills the soul with happiness? Is your wife fat and bitching because she can’t fit in Gucci shoes; are your kids never-endingly antagonizing you for an Xbox;, and you, do you really need to drive a car you can’t afford so that your neighbors don’t think you’re a poor putz? Yeah, to each his own, but that doesn’t sound happiness to me.

Realize that all these services, items, and whatever else is out there are just distracting you from what you truly love to do and experience. Then again, you may not be aware that there are other choices available more suited to your natural attraction for life.

I have visited 75 cities in 22 different countries, 9 countries of which I lived in for a period of my life, so don’t tag me with the poor unsuccessful bastard label. Rich or poor, my desires never shifted. How many times have you lost your keys and checked your pant pockets multiple times to see if you missed them somehow? Let me tell you, they are not there! I searched for my desires back home, multiple times, for years, but guess what… just like your keys, not there.

Lastly I moved the Central America, more specifically Costa Rica. Let me start by saying, “if you can’t live without Starbucks, don’t move here!” But isn’t that the whole idea, to get away from the addiction and sway toward your instinction? I am happily involved with a captivating woman from this beautiful country, and we spend our time traveling across these luscious lands visiting wonders that I have never experienced, and to multi-mile long unpopulated beaches, where yes, we have made love.

I am not promoting Costa Rica, what I am trying to promote, is life. I don’t know you, you may love where you live, but you may also be fooling yourself. You only live once and if you don’t do it now, you will one day be so far removed by all those distractions that you will have forgotten your fantasies, your dreams, and worst of all, yourself.

You were born somewhere. On a map with no names, that could be anywhere. Claim your life by living in a place where those subtle but more important things in life exist specifically for you and me.
