Wikileaks! lol! Love this. I have a tiny bladder too. My partner tells me I should drink more water, and I tell him, then we will need more toilet visits! Right now, we are traveling in an RV, so thank heavens we have our toilet with us. I can go to the bathroom while he's driving - and have! Just subscribed, so looking forward to reading more.

I love your writing and your humor!!!! I haven’t stopped to really read anything in years...except for work. I saw your post and now I’m hooked. I loved the story about the ATV’s! I read that three hours ago and I’m still laughing when I think about it! You have found your calling. Keep the stories coming!!!

Hi Eileen,

I love the pace and humor of your writing. You present a lot of profound and funny stuff.

I’m 86 year old and for the past three to four years have been taking Torsemide to reduce water in my body. It’s very effective. It summons me just about every half hour--sometimes even sooner. That’s why a huge smile of recognition filled my face and mind when I read:

 I’d love to blame it on the natural process of aging, but the truth of the matter is I’ve been like this my whole life. I have a bladder the size of a walnut. It fills up at just the thought of liquid… 

Hang on.

When I can make some time, I hope to write a response to your Greek tragedy. Meanwhile, keep the stories coming and give my best to Faith, Aidan, and Tim.

I *cannot* wait to read your crazy travel stories. We all have them, the best part in retrospect. What a great idea for a newsletter.

This is so funny and relatable! I also have a Substack about travel mishaps (would love to connect!) but being so blunt about what is REALLY one of the greatest and most consistent hassles of traveling is such a good idea for a newsletter haha. I have almost peed my pants in several countries.
