There are days when, no matter how much you wipe, you just cannot seem to get it all.
But those days never happen for 28-year-old Blythe Donnelly: After a particularly loose stool yesterday morning, this amazing, courageous young woman simply gave up after three wipes and went about her day.
“It started kind of suddenly,” said Blythe. “Before I got to the fourth wipe I thought, ‘There’s got to be more to life than this. I’m young, who knows how much time we have.’ And so, I just stopped after three. Just like that. My life hasn’t been the same since.”
This one change has given her more time to focus on her kids, her personal life, and even her spiritual growth.
“You know, maybe I didn’t realize it at the time, but I think I subconsciously took a page from the Zen Buddhist master, Thich Nhat Hanh, and just let go,” said Blythe. “Sure, I pull down my underwear and there are some track marks and toilet paper crumbs still lingering, but hey, aren’t we all just toilet paper crumbs in the underwear of life?”
Blythe’s coworkers are amazed by her efficiency and willingness to just give up on it.
“I don’t know what she means by the ‘underwear of life’ but, I mean, with the smell alone, I had to call HR,” said Ryan Francis. “I really hope this was a one-time thing.”
“She’s going to lose her job if this continues,” he added.
But Blythe is optimistic about where her life is going to take her next.
“You know, I don’t want to conform to societal standards set up for women anymore,” said Blythe. “Ladies have to lean into their natural bodies, their natural body hair, and their natural smells.”
“And besides, I still shower every three days or so,” she added.
