I've become an expert in emergency visits to porta potties over the past 8 months, I'm on Ozempic, and wow, you never know when your next BM is coming. I'm sad to report that the cleanest porta potty in all of Connecticut has disappeared.

These drugs numb your entire digestive system, and at any moment the mood can strike. Sometimes in awful places, like Northwest Connecticut, where gas stations and convenience stores are not on every corner. Any wrong move can result in disaster.

While picking up my wife from her job in Washington Depot, I discovered a hidden gem - the most pristine porta potty that I ever did see. It was located near a beautiful new mural on Bee Brook Road (Rt 47) in Washington Depot. The awful news, it's gone, but the mural looks beautiful -
