It's my first day back at work after a week of R & R.
As I needed three cups of coffee just to stay awake this morning, a bathroom break was in order.
After locking the door in my "usual" stall, I note that the water level in the bowl is low.
Hmmmm... that doesn't look right.
I ponder whether to stay or use one of the other two available units.
Instead of moving on, "Smart Me" decides to remain, but to first check its proper functioning before using it.
Hah! I am soooooo smart!
So Smart Me bends over the bowl and presses the handle for The Test Flush.
And Smart Me is drenched with a veritable eruption of water straight up.
Straight up like Old Faithful.
Straight up onto Smart Me's clothes.
Straight up onto Smart Me's freshly-shampooed hair.
Straight up into Smart Me's face.
All I could do was stand there, dripping, arms extended in a pose EXACTLY like Kristin Davis at the end of the Seinfeld episode "The Pothole".
After the shock wore off, Smart Me made her way to the sink and weighed the pros and cons of actually scrubbing her lips with disinfectant soap.
Smart Me did.
After washing her face, drying off her head, glasses and jacket, Smart Me does what she SHOULD have done in the first place.
Smart Me uses the next stall over.
And ponders once more whether to report the dysfunction (she did), to blog it (she is) or simply save some semblance of dignity and keep quiet, go home and freak out (she didn't).
Luckily, it was just water. It could have been worse.
At least Smart Me was smart enough to do a Test Flush.
Yup. I am sooooo smart.
