Tea, Pee, And A Bathroom Pond

I normally don't drink tea before heading out the door or have a second cup in the car or hit a 40 minute back up. The perfect storm - in my bladder. Oh there's going to be a big wave alright. In my pants.

I walked into the women's room at the rest stop and saw two ladies wearing knee high boots and holding a hose. The look on my face must have said it all. But they told me the bathroom was open so I walked through the 1/2 inch of water on the floor and headed into a stall. The seat was wet, the handle was wet, even the toilet paper was wet. Eeeeewwwwww. All I could think of was all the germs that were once on the objects in the bathroom were now on the floor - and I was standing in them.

Thank goodness the woman in the next stall, who was equally as horrified, had fairly dry toilet paper and was willing to share.

Not that it mattered. The nastiness of it all threw my game off. My hover was a bit too forward. And I'm pretty sure I peed on the back of my pants leg.

Hope you had a pisser Monday as well.

you said it, "eeewwwww!" Did you ever hear or read David Sedaris' bit on the "Stadium Pal?" A laugh riot, and quite appropriate for your post.

Thanks for that info Tara! I got a David Sedaris book recently as a gift - Holidays on Ice - and it's a great read. I'll have to keep my eyes open for Stadium Pal. I think it may make me feel better about the Mass Pike toilet area :)

Oh CJ! It's tough being a road warrior. By the way, the rest area at 495 North is closed for renovations - only sani-cans -EWWW-EWWW-EWWW. Travel safe and dehydrated!
