The Thing I Did
I assumed we were alone, it smelled kind of bad in there if you know what I mean. Now, first let me say that I have a constant and running dialogue with my daughter, telling her about the world and the things we encounter along the way. I said aloud to Cordelia," Oooo stinky," and then (yep it gets worse, because I think you have guessed where this is going) "Somebody went poopy." You see I was just being an awesome mom, just making sure that Cordelia is open to a wide vocabulary (poopy is a vocabulary word in my book).
Anyway, there was no sound or anything, just a sort of tension and extra silence in the bathroom. Uh oh, you've got it, hidden away in the last stall there was someone! Just hoping for a little peace and quiet, not a running commentary. So, I tossed the wet paper towel into the trash and skee-daddled with Cordelia, making sure that I was nowhere near the bathroom when the mystery lady made her break for it. Ooops. Hopefully she can laugh about it someday. If it was you, I am sorry, but you've got to admit it was pretty funny!
Takeaway lesson: Don't narrate a bathroom visit!
