Good Morning POTTY People!
We hope you all had a fantastic Father’s Day Weekend!
We don’t want to waste much time before getting into our main story this week, because it’s honestly one of the craziest stories we have ever heard.
For this week’s story, we sail to Provincetown, Cape Cod where we meet veteran lobster diver Michael Packard.
Unlike other Modern Lobster fishermen who use large nets or cages to easily catch lobster, Packard uses a technique where he dives down and catches the lobsters by hand.
We don’t know about you, but we wouldn’t even be willing to put our hands in a Lobster Tank where their claws are held shut with rubber bands…
Nonetheless, Packard was on his last dive of the day and feet away from plucking more lobsters from the surface of the ocean floor… when all of the sudden…
In something truly biblical… Packard was swallowed whole by a Humpback Whale.
(For those of you that may have glanced over that last part, we will include it again below in all caps for dramatic effect and emphasis)
“PACKARD WAS SWALLOWED WHOLE BY A HUMPBACK WHALE”
For about 30-40 seconds, Packard was not eaten, but was inside the mouth of a giant humpback whale, like the biblical story of Jonah!
“All of a sudden, I felt this huge shove and the next thing I knew it was completely black… I could sense I was moving, and I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth,” Packard recalled following his release from the Cape Cod Hospital.
But perhaps his most memorable quote from the experience was when he got back to the boat, he said the first thing he exclaimed was, "I was in the f&king whale's mouth!"
Luckily for Packard, he came away from the experience relatively unscathed and with minimal injuries.
So the next time you think your having a bad day at work… just remember… at least you weren’t swallowed by a f&#king whale!
Whale hello there Monday… Let’s get into this week’s POTTY Picks!
We vividly remember watching old episodes of “The Jetsons” and marveling at their life in the future!
From the Flying Cars, to Rosey the Robot – this far off, distant future seemed more like science fiction than reality!
And yet… now in the year 2021… while we don’t have flying cars just yet… we are getting pretty close on the robots.
Introducing Boston Dynamics, a robotics company based in Waltham, Massachusetts where they are building the Robotic future.
From smaller dog-like robots like “Spot” to their larger human sized “Atlas” Robot… Boston Dynamics is creating them all
And while some people are frightened by the technological achievements, Boston Dynamics made this video trying to make their technology a little more relatable and frankly… less scary.
While this may be hard to believe, this is 100% real and it may be a glimpse into the future
This week, we pick up right where we left off last week with some essential Summer Grooves!
Tired of the Radio playing the same 8 songs, over and over and over and over….
SWITCH IT UP! With our Potty Picks Playlist! Every week, we choose 5 songs perfectly curated for the mood of the week ahead!
This week, get those sunglasses and sunscreen ready… because it’s getting hot in here with these Summer Jams!
Stay up to date with all our weekly picks by “liking” and “following” our playlist on Spotify!
Frankly, we are sorry this Bathroom Moment of the Week took us this long to find… we think its one of our favorites to this point!
As a first time Mom, I am currently teaching my daughter how to use the Potty… and while I own and operate a Potty business… I know nothing about how to Potty Train a child
Patience is the name of the game, and making sure the child is comfortable- occasionally checking in with them to get a progress report
And no Potty Progress report is cuter or funnier than this weeks Bathroom Moment of the Week winner… “MattyG TV”
If that doesn’t make your day… I don’t know what will!
Thank you so much for joining us this week for another episode of Potty Time with POTTYMINTS!
We hope that this blog shows you some stories you otherwise would not have seen, or maybe you even learn something of value from a POTTY blog… who would’ve thought!
As you know, we like to end our blogs with a quote to help us all get through the week ahead with a little added wisdom and motivation.
This week, our quote comes from one of the pioneers of comedy, Groucho Marx:
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.“
– Groucho Marx
We want to send you into this week with nothing but happiness, health and whatever else your heart desires!
Make today the best one yet! We will see you next Monday for another episode of Potty Time with POTTYMINTS! But until then, have a fantastic week!
