Sample text:

You landlubbers don’t know how good you’ve got it. You hit the flusher and your poop magically disappears. It goes off through pipe land into some magical septic world never to be thought of again.


   Not us boaters. We hold onto our poop. We keep it in a tank and carry it with us on our travels. We haul it all over paradise until we find someone willing to take it off our hands, so to speak.


   We perfume it. We deodorize it. We experiment with various potions and powders in hopes of stopping the stink.


   We know what a Y valve is. We know what a flapper valve is. Our toilet ain’t a toilet. It’s a head. We don’t put toilet paper in it. We hang onto that too, carrying it around until it can be disposed of.


   The head is maintained meticulously. It gets regular doses of vegetable oil to keep it lubricated. It is inspected almost daily, looking for leaks. It is cursed and it is worshipped. It is vital to our comfort and our survival so it is revered. It is apt to quit working at the worst times, so it is feared.


   It reeks sometimes. It has a vent. Imagine sitting on your patio and when someone flushes in the house you get a good whiff of whatever they just sent down.
