7 signs you're a peecrastintor

Are you as lazy as I am when it comes to getting up to go the bathroom to pee? I mean, I don’t play around when it’s poop time (unless I’m somewhere where I feel extremely uncomfortable about doing it) but when it comes to pee, I’ve always tried to hold it for as long […]
