"commercial, break, pee, listening" by matthew savoca

sometimes when my girlfriend and i are watching Lost on television and it is one of the commercial breaks, she gets up and runs to the bathroom and when i hear the door shut i sneak up through the hallway and listen to her pee. she pees hard and fast and it makes a hissing sound, like there is a small hole in a pressurized chamber. it sounds to me like it ought to be hurting, but i don't think it is. i hear the toilet flush and i run into the kitchen and start making noise with a pot. she asks me what i'm doing and i say i'm making sweet milk for us. she gets excited and runs over to the couch. don't forget the cinnamon, she says. i get out the milk and heat it up in a pot on the stove and then i pour the milk into two mugs and i stir in honey and top them off with cinnamon. i walk back into the living room and sit down on the couch. she smiles at me and kisses my cheek. i hand her the mug that contains the most milk and wait patiently for the next commercial.

I'm happy that you don't use the microwave to make sweet, sweet milk. I microwaved an egg this morning.
Also, girls don't know how loud they pee. They think that by sitting down it muffles the sound, but it only makes it more porcelainic.
I think that should be a word.

We do know. We are proud of our loud peeing. There are secret girl pee volume contests. I am telling you because I trust you.
