Zen Tuesday: #9


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. But as this is not Zen Monday but Zen Tuesday--hell, we can do whatever we want.

Who is Pumping and why would s/he want to come in here?

:-D

Hee hee hee hee hee!

I can't say what I'm really thinking.

No risk, no reward.

Mister Earl said...

First thought: censored.

Good one, JJ!

lizziviggi said...

My "dirty" thoughts run more along the lines of plumbing issues. Er... literally.

Vanda said...

Sorry, only dirty thoughts come to mind. I blame the elections.

Speedway said...

Everything I can think of involves barbells, a turkey baster and/or a plumber's snake, singly or in combination ... none of it clean.

Don't mess with Governor Schwarzenegger when's he's taking his morning exercise.

The Primping Room at the Subliterates' Convention.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Never on a Sunday; Tuesday's OK

West Coast Grrlie Blather said...

Well, it's either pumping or sucking. Obviously this mom is at work without her kid.

Trish said...

considering the smiley face at the end...I can only assume HE is having fun all by himself in there. I'd knock and give plenty of warning before going in and perhaps have a kleenex handy for him?...at least on Tuesday!

Speedway said...

This reminded me of the "Lactation Stations" at our state fair and other community events, where mothers can go to comfortably nurse their infants. The national organization is the Human Milk Banking Association of North America,
http://www.hmbana.org/.
The closest chapter to you folks is located in San Jose. They also collect milk from screened donors for babies whose mothers are unable to nurse them.

I'm sure, without reading the comments, that someone has said what I'm thinking. (Now, I'll read and find out.)

Since I'm in a voting mood, and definitely do not want to listen to results, I cast my ballot for West Coast Girl. She's either funny or right.

Ms M said...

Ha! Good catch. Either a mom or someone working on a backed up toilet.

Petrea said...

I think West Coast Grrlie must be right, although when I saw the sign I didn't have a clue. Now it seems so obvious to me that it's sweet. I'm glad I smooshed out mom's name.

Clifford Beshers said...

Personally, I think it's an interrogation room.

Trish said...

Speedway is correct about San Jose having a lactation station chapter...out in force for sure and a friend was in high force with them. it has gotten high tech companies to have pumping stations for moms to comfortably pump in private, or feeding rooms so they don't have to take their kids into the bathroom to let them feed.

Petrea said...

I like your explanation, Cliff.

Eeuw! Nursing in the bathroom? When I was a young woman, some mothers felt comfortable nursing in public. I guess that was short-lived.

Margaret said...

Hmmmm...

Gina said...

It wasn't me, but I have been that mother! Once someone did walk into my office while pumping and I wasn't really embarrassed (I was facing away from them and you do what you gotta do) but they were horrified!

And I nurse in public all the time. I've nursed sitting on a low wall on the corner of Lake & Walnut, at the steps on the yarn store on Wilson, in Target more times than I can count, on the gold line, at the farmer's market, on airplanes...I've never had a negative comment except from my sister-in-law and a businessman at Dulles one time.

Petrea said...

Gina, I'll bet that person knocks now. So strange that you'd get a negative comment from a) a stranger and b) a relative!
