Remember when you were a kid, the adults would
tell you not to eat the yellow snow? Here it's
especially true. When you go out on the Ice
Shelf, frequently the only place to use the
restroom is a place where there isn't a restroom.
On the ice itself. In the busier areas there
are outhouses but when that isn't feasible, a
Pee Flag is set up. A Pee Flag is just like
the Red, Green or even Black flags I've discussed
in other posts...only it's Yellow. How appropriate.
Before you ask, there is actually a plastic thingy
that women can use so that they don't have to...
well, you know. Men on the other hand...well...you
know. Thankfully there isn't a Brown Flag. I think
that might cross the line concerning good taste...Ugh
...maybe I should rephrase that.
