I'm Peeing in the Rain

Doing my fears this month, in case you missed day one.

Day uh... is it 12 now?: Lightning


Rate on the scary scale from 1-10: 6

First off, I need to go back and learn my ABC's. I totally had M scheduled for today and L was nowhere to be found. Funny thing, when I made the schedule for the group blog I contribute to, I missed M.

Maybe my four-year-old can teach me the song again. Oi.

Anyways, I'm about to tell an embarrassing story. This is up there with my G-string blush-capade.

I like to run around in the rain. I still do, it's way too much fun to give up doing this, but this one episode made me hesitant for a while.

This happened to be one of those rainstorms I wasn't alone for. (Of course, cuz I never do embarrassing things when I'm by myself.) Me and the best bud were running around the front yard making fools of ourselves when...

CRACK! BOOM!

Not even kidding, lightning and thunder right on top of each other.

Now, the thunder made me jump, but it was the five inches from the giant bolt of electricity that made me whiz myself. Yes, I peed my pants in the middle of the front yard in front of my best friend.

At least I was already wet, right?

Oh no!!! Well, I would have done the same. And if it makes you feel better, I can name two people that have wet their pants as an adult. I remember a story of this one person someone I know worked with who wet her pants in a rain storm while waiting for a bus! Sometimes, when you gotta go, you gotta go.

T. Drecker said...

I love storms! Especially, thunder and lightening. I could sit at watch it for hours... maybe because it is so powerful.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

In my adult years I got spooked and tinkled a little bit. It can happen. Great blogpost. Such a thing would never show up on my blog. It would die with me and any witnesses who happened to see it happen.

Pk Hrezo said...

lol... i've never had the piss scared out of me before, but that may just do it for me too. I have laughed so hard I've peed my pants before. Yep, classy. lol

Tobi Summers said...

Um, I kind of think I'd have peed myself too. I love thunderstorms too, but if lightning was that close to me, I'm not sure a simple thing like holding my bladder would seem so important.

Jack said...

I thrive in storms, Cassie! I love 'em! I can't get enough of them. I love being out in 'em and being cozy and snuggly inside while watching the mayhem from my bay window!

Lighting can be so scary. We were hurrying home from an outdoor concert that had ended early when lighting struck the power pole behind our house. It wasn't until 1 a.m. that we have electricity again.

The power of it got me when I read an article about when it struck a baseball game. It was a high school game and the lighting hit the poor 16 year old boy on the pitchers mound. It too everyone on the field to the ground, but it killed that boy. Imagine being his parents in the stands. Ugh. So sad.

Mark Koopmans said...

Well played, Cauer, well played....

or should that be well pee-ed ?

Gwen said...

I've always wanted to dance in the rain. Though lightening is dangerous. It stuck a tree near our house once, I was watching TV when it suddenly turned off and I smelled the sent of burnt wires. Not a pleasant night.

Accidentalwriter said...

Just think...it could have been worse Cassie....and that could have really tested a friendship.

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I am in absolute awe that you are so willing to share all these experiences. Courage, woman, sheer courage.

S. L. Hennessy said...

Yikes, that's not what you want. But as much as I love lightening, and I do, I prefer it from a nice, safe distance.

Joshua said...

You're a goof. Is it just because it's embarrassing? Honestly, I think I should be allowed to pee outside all the time. Saves water.

elizabeth seckman said...

Such a brave woman to share. And so very DEPENDABLE, now in more ways than one!

Cassie Mae said...

T Drecker: Oh I love them too! I can't get enough, as long as that lightning doesn't scare the pee out of me. :)

Sheena: I've peed myself way too many times to embarrassed by it anymore.

Pk: That was the only time I've peed from getting scared. I laugh myself empty all the time. We are some classy girls!

Jack: Me too! Are you one of those rain dancers too?

Jenny S. Morris said...

I think most people would pee themselves. I love the word whiz.

Emily R. King said...

I would have peed myself, too. Don't mess with thunder and lightning!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

At least you weren't struck by lightning!

Cortney Pearson said...

Right on! I would have peed myself too! I wet my pants one night during a sleepover when I was 13--seriously SOOOO embarrassing! I left the party at like 5 am, right after it happened, while the others were still asleep. And my friends called and were like, why did you leave? Uh, because I pissed my pants in your living room? Yeah, I just told them I had to help my brother with his paper route or something. Still, I think yours is better, lol!!

Side note, my dad got struck by lightning when he was 16, and he was wearing converse shoes at the time. The little silver, metal holes in the inner side left scars which he still has today. Crazy!

Johanna Garth said...

LOL, and at least you were close to home.

Jolene Perry said...

That. Is. Insane.

Insane.

I love thunderstorms, and WAY miss them, b/c we almost NEVER get thunder.

Emily White said...

I'd be concerned if you hadn't peed yourself. That's scary!!

Emily Moir said...

Oh dear. Yes, definitely good thing you were already wet.

Suzi said...

Is she still your friend? The only reason I ask is cause if I were your friend, you might hate me cause I was laughing so hard.

Gossip_Grl said...

I do not like thunderstorms, especially when there is a lot of wind with one.

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Nice! I'm always freaked out to sit on the toilet when it's storming. I read an article about a woman who got electrocuted on the toilet during a storm z(years and years ago) and I can't help thinking of how horrible it would be to be electrocuted when going potty and dying with my panties around my ankles.

Martha said...

That thunder and lightning at the same time is serious stuff! Better peeing in the rain than hit by that lightning! Yikes!!

Ruth Josse said...

I LOVE thunderstorms! As long as I'm inside. I was told once that if your hair starts to raise then lightning is coming for you. So of course I feel the little hairs on the back of my neck stand at attention whenever I happen to be outside during a thunderstorm.

And friends who are still friends after accidental bodily fluid leakage are the kind you want to keep around!

Kelley Lynn said...

Gosh, I love the rain. And storms. I have an alarm clock that plays the rain when I'm sleeping :)

Did your friend know you wet yourself?

I once made my sister laugh so hard while we were sunbathing on our driveway that she wet herself. She was like five. And I didn't even touch her.

Ah...the days when she thought I was funny :)

Sharkbytes said...

Interesting theme! Lightning can be scary! I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. My A-Zs are at myqualityday.blogspot.com

Jackie said...

Girl, you are straight up awesome. I love visiting your blog bcuz you're sweet and real. Thanks for being you! And for cracking me up! :D

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

i do that too!
i mean, run around in the rain- not piss myself... although, if a lightning bolt struck five inches from me, i'm sure i'd add some chocolate sauce to that tall lemonade!
YIKES!

Suzi said...

just to clarify, I meant laughing about peeing, not getting electrocuted. I do have to say that this fear is another one of your justified ones. I bet your kids won't be playing out in the lightening.

Jessica Salyer said...

Too funny. At least your weren't hurt.

KSCollier said...

This is too funny. I collected rain in pot one day for my plants (dummy me) and stuck it under a metal rain spout (how dumb is that?) and lightning struck on the corner near my home, and I flew back about 5 feet and landed on my butt. As soon as I could stand, I was inside and dressed and curled up on a chair, and went to sleep. It zapped only my energy, thank goodness. I never did that again. Great story. I forgot about this until I read your story. I'm A to Z-ing it. Nice to meet you.

Sylvia Ney said...

Hilarious! New follower here. I’m enjoying reading my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.

Cassie Mae said...

Emily: didn't help the smell though. :)

Suzi: Yes. Wasn't the first time I soiled myself in front of her. She was probably used to it by then.

Sharkbytes: Super scary! And good luck visiting everyone. Wowza!

Jackie: Aw, chest bump and butt grab for you!

Suzi: LOL, I knew what you meant. :D

KS: Oh my gosh how freaky scary!!! I'm glad you are okay, but ya, don't do that again!

Sylvia: Oh, going over to follow you as well!

Sarah Pearson said...

Awww heck, that's what best friends are for right?

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

So sorry - I didn't mean to scare you with the lightning thing. Bad me. :(

Hope Roberson said...

I was thinking the same thing--already wet, no worries!
