Funny (but unfortunately true) Story

Speaking of embarrassing...
I went to summer camp exactly ONCE.  My parents forced me to go and I was TERRIFIED.  The bath houses were up this steep hill about a five minute walk from the bunk houses.  I don't remember how old I was, but I know I wasn't 10 yet...  Anyway rather than risk getting murdered by pirates in the middle of the tick-infested woods on my way to the bath house at night when I had to pee, I simply peed quietly on a towel that I kept under my bunk!!!  No one was the wiser because in the bright light of morning, I would bring it up to the bathroom, rinse it out really well, and leave it outside all day to dry!
I thought I was clever until one night our bunk "mom" caught me doing it and nearly whipped me!  She scared me more than the risky walk to the bath house!  Suffice it to say, when my parents came to get me at the end of the week, scary bunk mom told my parents what I'd been doing and, though they gave me "the look" right there at camp, I didn't get truly reprimanded until we had gotten home.  They never sent me back to camp. you really blame them?
Don't hold it against me, OK?
