a question of sanity

Fun Fact: Some people wear adult diapers in NYC on New Year’s Eve to accommodate for the big crowd and lack of available bathrooms.

Guys… I don’t even know what to say here. Why would you choose to stroll around in your own urine all night? Do you really want to hug and embrace your loved one, plant a kiss under the fireworks, and ring in the new year with a hot loaded diaper sagging down your skinny jeans? This may sound pretty romantic to some, but this isn’t my idea of a great start to the year. If it’s yours, well… more power to you, I guess. (Not really. Y’all are pretty weird.)


Would you soil yourself for the opportunity to spend NYE in Times Square? Have you done this already?! I’m afraid to know the truth, but the curiosity is killing me.

    This is awesome! What I did do one year when I was an avid runner, was take the train in to NYC from CT with a bunch of other crazy running pals to run a race that started in Central Park on the stroke of midnight! It was insane. There was one guy running in nothing but a jockstrap, champagne stops instead of water stops, fireworks, myriad other crazy runners…. Needless to say my own friends had to stop and pee in a giant garbage dumpster and we sang Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” on the top of our lungs on the way home…. Yes, those were truly the days….. Tonight I will simply go to bed early…tra la. 🙂

    I live here in NYC and I have never known any native New Yorker who attended the dropping of the ball affair. This idea of wearing a diaper soiling yourself all day for this final ten seconds of a passing year is the ultimate in idiocy. To each his own. I am the boring type. I will start my 2016 with fresh underwear. By the way, loved this post.

    I was just watching the ball drop on TV and about an hour beforehand, these two girls were proudly yelling at a TV reporter “WE’RE WEARING DIAPERS!!”
    I don’t think I’ll be heading down to see the whole thing live any time soon. I really enjoyed watching it on my TV just a few steps away from a fully functioning bathroom. Plus now I get to go to sleep without worrying about streets and trains full of people who have been wearing the same diaper for 12 hours!

    Well, that was just frightening to read, and I live on the other side of the world! But I do know that Aussies do some bizarre things under the influence of alcohol, so I can’t be too critical. In fact, it was possibly Aussie tourists wearing the diapers, only we call them nappies, so just check if anyone was yelling about wearing them. Jeez, humans are scary 😉
