“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Once, when I was a reporter for the newspaper in Rochester, New York, I was on the thruway, on my way to Albany for an interview with the governor (Cuomo back then) ... and I had to go to the bathroom. Badly. And I was running late. Very late. And I'd heard from other reporters that tardy journalists were sometimes sent back home with no interview. Every minute counted in this situation.

And, man oh man, did I have to pee. I looked around the car for anything that I could use as a makeshift bedpan while driving. I had just cleaned out the car. Nothing. And then I scavenged through my backpack with one hand, my other hand on the steering wheel....and I pulled out a .........disposable diaper.

Yep. You guessed it. I am pleased to announce that one Pampers will sufficiently hold one adult-size portion of urine.

Easy clean-up, too. I taped up diaper and tossed it into the trashcan on the way into the capitol ... and made it to my interview just on time.

I probably shouldn't have shaken the governor's hand, as I did ... but what he doesn't know won't hurt him.

Hilarious! I'm sure you're not the first. I read that sales of Depends went up in the Washington, D.C., area for inauguration weekend

Perhaps I'll start packing a few Pampers under the seat.
