Or anywhere for that matter!
Thought you guys (well CeCe and Peggy mostly) might like to hear another of my funny stories, lol. 
Do not under any circumstances, attempt to text and change your bag at the same time!  it will not go well, i promise.  It will only end in heartache.
No really what ends up happening is you make a big mess, especially since the first tube of paste i tried to use would NOT come out then the second tube pretty much exploded all over the wafer, druing this time i am texting with one hand and spreading paste around with the other, get that straightened out and am then trying to dry off the area with one hand while using the same hand to hold the cloth over it so it won't go everywhere adn text with the other hand, which means i am texting with my left hand, which means that is not going well either!
Anyway, eventually after about 10 minutes and i was not even done drying off the area, and i usually have the whole thing done in 8 minutes, i gave up the texting and finished.  Needless to say i cleaned my phone very well with an alchol wipe afterwards!

You know how I love your stories, and that one's a classic! smilewinkgrin I'm a big multitasker, too, but have learned the hard way that I have to stay focused while changing my wafer, because I don't have much time before Paloma (my stoma) starts talking again!

Thanks for the tip (and the laugh)! tongue
