Random Thoughts

Should a person sound an alarm or call the police when they see a person get off a city bus carrying a chainsaw?

Like, out in the open, with no case, ready to go Freddy Krueger on anyone standing nearby?

Because I imagine a chainsaw can be used as a deadly weapon - and I suppose toting around such a tool violates some conceal and carry law or homeland security law.

Just a thought.

Never fails, I think about writing this next one weekly.

Once in a while I'm caught in a bind - I need to do my business in a place where I do my business. You know - a bodily function that everybody does (I think this is when I start reminding myself about that child's book Everybody Poops) and nobody talks about, well, at least when at work.

Come on. You know you've thought about it, too.

I just can't bring myself to take care of business in a restroom that anyone else could enter at any time. One hitters - those are perfect. I can lock the door, do what I need to do and take care of any offensive odors before someone else walks in.

But the multiple stall scenario? Talk about literally getting caught with your pants down. There are so many sounds, smells and other signals that could warn the unsuspecting entrant about the un-ladylike goings on in the bathroom.

And that really stresses me out.

Today I found a bathroom that's totally out of the way for my coworkers, and yet it's roomy enough so as to not really cause any problems should I be caught in a bind.

Because poop cramps are one thing I just can't tolerate at work.

HAHA - Kate, I thought of you yesterday because on my way home from work, Q102 was talking about this very same subject. I couldn't help but wonder if they'd somehow seen your post. :)
Congrats on your new niece or nephew, by the way. How exciting!
