The… Bathroom Tree

When we were younger, there was a tree behind our house in MS that was just barely inside the woods. We would’ve promised anyone that it had a strange way of making you have to run to the bathroom! We’re not quite sure which one of us started the rumor, but we would walk to the tree regularly to take turns daring each other to climb it. Then we would laugh uncontrollably as we watched the gullible climber scramble down the tree and run with everything they had to the church, which housed the nearest bathroom. Someday maybe we’ll go back and revisit the old tree to see if it was just our wild imaginations, or if we were in fact correct about it’s interesting effect on people.
