Book Giveaway Winner!

I must say, I am impressed. Your stories of peeing in the wilderness are very touching. Kim gets special recognition for writing a rhyming poem about peeing her pants, and Maggie gets an honorable mention for admitting she used to pee outside while wearing full colonial regalia.

All the responses are funny and/or heartwarming; I regret not having copies of the book to give to all of you for baring your, er, souls for all the blogosphere to see.

(If you haven't yet read the responses for the giveaway, I heartily encourage you to do so; they're fabulous. And you can always add one of your own. Everyone loves a good wilderness/pee story, right?)

So, the results are in: I wrote your names on pieces of paper, put them in a bowl, and had my husband draw a name, and the winner is: Heather! You, lucky dog, are the soon-to-be owner of a brand- spankin'-new copy of The Double-Daring Book for Girls. (Heather, email me at writerinres2004 at yahoo dot com and let me know what snail mail address you'd like me to send the book to.)

I'm off to the desert to backpack and rejuvenate (and pee in the wilderness). See you next week.

Hi Andrea, and thanks to everyone who entered the contest! I loved the stories. And the poem--kudos to the poet!

Congratulations Heather.

Hugs to everyone,
Miriam, from the The Double-Daring Book for Girls

have fun using your professional peeing skills! can't wait to hear about it. i mean the trip in general!

i thought of another story: at our cabin we pee outside whereever. no use wasting time walking to the outhouse just to pee and it's the middle of nowhere so who cares.

while visiting our friends' cabin, i figured they must do the same thing. i dropped my pants when i thought no one was around and just then janice came around the corner, obviously shocked at my behavior. her mother-in-law had planted grass at their cabin. i looked around and realized i was, in effect, peeing on their lawn. classy!
