How much can you possibly pee? It seems like I changed my residence to… the bathroom. I remember driving once and stopping at a really small and scary gas station where I asked if I could use the bathroom. The shop attendant told me that it was for staff only and I couldn’t, to which I shouted out: “I’m pregnant and I have to!!!”. I guess he was aware I would have done it in front of the gas station door so he then handed me the key to the facilities.
