There’s a lot I don’t talk about online. Because I don’t want to feed the trolls. Because it’s not my story to tell. Or because foster care rules keep me quiet. Then there are the things we just don’t say in polite company.
If you know me in real life, you’ve heard the potty mouth, but you’re not likely to see me curse online. You think I have no filter. You think I talk about everything. After all, I have 238945 blogs to fill. But, some things are just kept quiet — and it happens in real life too.
I was in the doctors office the other day, ignoring the in-house television along with the rest of the waiting room. Then the announcer said “butt” and I kid you not EVERYONE LOOKED UP. Is it because not talking about butts is so shocking, we just had to see who said it? Or is it because we all desperately WANT to talk butts?
I can tell you without a doubt that children want to talk butts. They want to talk butts at the bus stop and butts at the dinner table and butts in the lunch room. If not butts, they will gladly substitute poop or farts or other body parts. Just say the word.
Do we outgrow this need to talk about butts? Maybe we just learn to quiet it in public. I know I’ve been trying to teach my four when and where these conversations are okay. (How about not while I’m eating?)
Still want to talk butts as a grownup? Don’t worry — Cottonelle is breaking the silence. Let’s talk butts. Right here, right now. I’m starting a new campaign with Cottonelle to encourage people to have the conversations we don’t usually start.
Is toilet paper enough? Do baby bottoms have it better than we do? The Cottonelle fresh wipes system may very well be the greatest thing since indoor plumbing. And we’re going to talk it out.
This post is brought to you by the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths. As a Let’s Talk Bums paid ambassador, I’ll be bringing my potty mouth out of the bathroom to bring awareness to this very serious issue. #LetsTalkBums
