"Making the Bladder Gladder": Sayings for going pee!

Photo by fPat Murray
There's a lot of sayings for taking a pee. For instance, when people say they're going to “answer the call of nature”, it means they’re going to PEE. Not poop!

The same thing goes for “seeing a man about a horse.” (But maybe if you were going to see a man about an ELEPHANT, you’d be pooping.)

If you need to pee really bad, you might exclaim, “My back teeth are floating!If you're more scientific, go with, “I am feeling micturient.”

Also, you can TAKE a pee (or piss), GO Number 1, or even DO a wee. But nobody ever GIVES a pee? How selfish! Anyway, here’s the best “I'm going to go pee” sayings!
