This article started with a question posed during the Big Little Podcast Diaper Show Part 2. I asked this question to my twitter followers and got some pretty awesome answers including, plugs, food, someone else's pee, and bubble wrap. Anyway, on to my answer for what the strangest thing that has ever been in my diaper.
The strangest thing that has ever been inside my diaper is not even close to what you'd imagine. In the beginning of my obsession with diapers I used to make them out of anything I could get my hands on. I remember being about six years old and having a wooden toy, fairly gun-shaped, that of course was used as a gun during many of my childhood imagination play sessions, ie the beginning of Toy Story 3.
Well, I was also experimenting with different ways of making diapers because I was too young to buy any. Of course, at this point in my life, I don't think buying any was even in the back of my mind. I didn't even really understand what was going on, and I didn't really realize they made diapers for adults. I did use to steal some from my grandmother's stash of baby diapers for my cousins, of which there are now 30, and the youngest is currently about 25 years younger than me, but I digress.
One of the things I used to make my own diaper was one of the blankets we kept on the living room couch, I'm currently sitting next to that very same blanket actually. Why can't I ever buy anything that lasts this long? I digress again. So I found some comically large safety pins in my house and used them to fasten the blanket around me as if it was a diaper. Since it was a blanket that the whole family used to keep ourselves warm while watching TV, I couldn't just pee in it or anything, so I had to improvise.
Well one thing led to another and my improvisation turned towards simulating a messy diaper. I don't know how it happened, or what my thought process was, but one day I decided to try that wooden toy gun looking thing. I strapped on my blanket diaper and stuck that wooden toy down the back of it.
The funny thing about that is, well I guess there's a lot of funny things about this, but I remember liking it so much that I did it once in awhile for years. I kind of wish I knew where that wooden toy was today, but I'm sure it got thrown away years ago. Probably for the best.
