Thirteen Crossings

“When I imagined my honeymoon, I never dreamed I’d be peeing outside,” I thought to myself as I made sure my husband of three days couldn’t see me behind the rock I deemed a restroom. Emerging from my hiding spot, I had to laugh at myself. There I was in little boy shoes that velcroed
