I just dump mine wherever I happen to be standing. The people that are familiar with the trumpet know why and generally understand and those that know nothing about the trumpet don't even know what I am doing. If they mention the puddle, I just explain that all live animals have natural behaviour.
Empty often, then there is no "stream" to grab attention.
If it ever became an issue (a wedding or something), I would simply rubber band a suitably sized piece of sponge (they are available in decorator colors and can be cut into cool shapes) under the spit key/valve.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
ditto - I don't worry - if someone hires a trumpet they should expect to be spit on.
Stop acting like someone shot your dog.
If it's been posted, my apologies. Sometimes I just don't want to wade through post after post of off-topic silliness. Don't mind it to an extent. Helps build community. But a little self moderation after a point might be appropriate. Should one really have to wade through ten pages just to read a few actual answers to an OP? Anyway . .
I just got this by email. Don't know if it's useful - I wouldn't use it; a simple folded hand towel on the thigh works for me - but in case anyone does like it, here's an alternate to other suggestions:
