Stop This Crazy Train

The women's washroom is a place that holds many stories. It is bizarre how walking through those doors can instantly change relationships. Some women become best friends with anyone that shares a couple minutes of interaction. The exchange of secrets, gossip and sometimes tears are all typical confidential commotion. This has to be one of the biggest differences between men and women.

The office washroom is a necessary escape after chain drinking coffee. I usually practice the quick no nonsense approach. I avoid chitchat, as that can be risky, not knowing who could be in another stall. I was washing my hands today while a woman from a different organization was primping. We were not engaging in conversation. All of sudden she broke the silence by singing one line of a song. I couldn't help but smile when I heard "Your body is a wonderland." She then carried on like it had never happened.

Do you think she was channeling John Mayer? Wrap that boy up and put a bow on him.

I think I do that quite a bit...have random song bits spill out of me. After it happens I think, did I just sing that out loud?

My brother honestly and truthfully, accidentally found himself sitting in a stall in woman's washroom at an airport once, and he couldn't believe the information that he heard complete strangers sharing with each other. He had to sit there until everyone cleared out, so he got quite a sampling of conversations. Please don't send out for his arrest. He just had to go really badly, and couldn't have done his business on the plane.

I think I do that singing thing too.

My old boss told me all the important stuff got taken care of in the women's washroom and I work at a boys school.

haha! Her self-confidence certainly isn't lacking!

Did she give herself a little kiss in the mirror, too?

Weird, but kinda funny. At least she has good taste in music. John Meyer is YUMMY!

Perhaps she just knew that you needed a lift and your boyfriend was too far away to sing it himself...

I would see that as a cosmic calling from your boyfriend via a complete stranger. Don't let Niloc get wind of this!
