Monkey Butt

Most people don't have to worry about Monkey Butt until they do. If your a military professional who has spent a few weeks afield, an outdoorsman who has accidently got lost, or someone who has somehow found themselves in the middle of a disaster with no way out for a few weeks. You will quickly learn the meaning of Monkey Butt. When im afield with the guys we always laugh when someone has a serious case of Monkey Butt. But Until it happens to you then you quickly realize it's no laughing matter. For 12 days I roughed it with no shower.Ugh!! Yeah it sucked but it's a small part of what I do. I have been here before, so I knew what essentials I would need while being afield. The number 1 item is baby wipes. Im writing this post in cunjuction with the terrible earthquake in Haiti and with the memory of the devasting Hurricane Katrina that struck the U.S. a few years ago. Many people don't think about prepardeness until they are forced to and by that time it's too late. So for this brief moment Im going to spotlight how important baby wipes are for any emergency plan. They provide you with a quick way to wash when water is not available and you can can hit all your hot spots, like under arms and the crotch. Because the Lord knows if you don't, what terrible afflicition is awaiting you. Which is; the undisputed Monkey Butt!! So it's something to think about, if your planning a trip or if your planning to store items for your emergency plan.

That was definitely a great way to infuse humour into something so important. I get it's not funny, really, but I think that's why it is a bit funny.

Especially that picture!

Just found your blog- very cool! Lol'ed at Monkey Butt. My husband is king of the baby wipes theory! Looking forward to reading about your family's growing adventures this year.

Kenneth, MLMW- Thanks for the comments. Some of the guys saw the post and we have been joking about this everyday. I could have been more explicit but I decided that not everyone has my sense of humor. But in all seriousness, this condition is hell. My hope is that someone somewhere took precautions from reading this post and saved them self. But I'll tell you one guy that this won't be happening to and that's me;)
