Squatty Potty — I Hear We All Need One

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 11.30.35 AMApparently the Squatty Potty was one of the most sought after gifts this past Christmas. My friend had to fight for it at an exchange party and lost it. She then went to the store, and they were sold out. The theory is our ancestors used to squat when going to the bathroom. I guess cavemen had to keep things moving — no time for a leisurely dump when there is a lion after you. In my world, no time for it when the kids are pounding on the door.

This is probably going to be more than you need to know, but putting your feet up changes the angle of your bowel which allows for easier passage of the poop — sounds like an Indiana Jones movie. No one likes to talk about the “C” word (this time constipation, not cancer) but it can be annoying, painful, and in some cases, serious. Any stool (ha!) will work, but this one tucks under the toilet. I hear the biggest downside is teenage boys get so comfortable, they monopolize the bathroom for hours. All this can be yours for under $25. Happy day.
