As I sit upon my porcelain throne I ponder the great questions in life: Why is my 2 year old staring at me? Do I have any notifications on Facebook? Oh no. My phone is almost dead. Where did I leave my charger? What was my wife asking me to do 5 minutes ago? Oh yea. Change the baby's diaper. Ooh. Look at this picture of a cat. What was I supposed to do again? Why is my wife yelling? What time is it? Its been 30 minutes?!
OK. So I have a bit of a confession to make. Yes, it does often take me longer to drop the kids off at the pool than it does my wife. But lets face it guys, a lot of the time we spend on the toilet is spent playing games on our phones, browsing Facebook, or watching fail videos on YouTube. Sorry to ruin it for you, but you know its true. We read about how to build a deck, the newest, fastest car or computer that just came out or how to make our wives happier (lol...right). We play Clash of Clans or Candy Crush on our phones. This is our time. Our few minutes of the day to escape and decompress.
The idea of taking less time in the bathroom can be a little scary for some of us.
But let me be the first to tell you that it's okay to spend less time backing the big brown motor-home out of the garage, especially when it leaves you with an oddly satisfying feeling of emptiness inside.
The first few times I used my Squatty Potty, I didn't think there was much of a difference. Why is this any different than leaning forward while you bomb the porcelain sea? I already do that.
Imagine this: You've been trying to clear out some inventory for days, but it just isn't happening. You've done everything you could think of including drinking 5 cups of coffee in 3 hours. Your stomach is cramping and you feel like you could die. Then it happens. You finally release the corn-eyed butt snake into the wild. Be free, butt snake! Live your life as you were meant to!
This is how every porcelain adventure feels with the Squatty Potty.
I get it. There're a lot of people who doubt it. There're also a lot of people who understand how it works but still haven't tried it.
Then there are those of us who have. There are those of us who can't live without it.
In all seriousness though, I have never felt this great. I don't know how I lived before the Squatty Potty. It has changed my life for the better.
I spend less time in the bathroom and more time with my family and I literally feel better than I ever have. The price for the Squatty Potty Ecco Stool from their website is $29.00. They offer free shipping on any order over $19.99.
There are 3 other versions of the stool. The slim with teak finish is priced at $60.00, the Tao bamboo adjustable model sells for $80.00, and the portable model that folds up for traveling sells for $35.00.
They also offer a line of t-shirts and toilet sprays. Not only can you poop better but you can smell and look better too!
And a note for our readers in Europe, they fit nicely under European style toilets as well!!
I sincerely hope that if you have even been remotely considering purchasing one that my review helps to push in the right direction (pun intended). The next time you feel the need to drop a depth charge do so from the right angle and altitude. ;-)
You've still got a few days to order one of these magical devices from their website and get it in time for Christmas - and you should. Someone you know wants one, and may not even know it yet. If it's you, get two.
