    Nature is calling me

    This phrase, meaning "I need to go to bathroom" leaves some question for "nature".
    Does "nature" refer to your physical needs or "symbolic nature" to mean real nature, the world of animals, plants, etc?

    ex) Nature is calling me.

    Re: Nature is calling me

    The need to urinate is a natural phenomena.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Nature is calling me

    I would even suggest a natural imperative, hence when one is called, one must respond.

    not a teacher
