When I was a freshman in college, my friend and I were walking into the campus center. And as I walked in and saw some gorgeous football players (not a guarantee in my school!) walking up the stairs, I tripped. Not sure what over, but that's irrelevant. Point is I tripped. And covered my face. I guess I assumed if I couldn't see the guys then they couldn't see me!
Sometimes my logic amazes even me!
So what made me think of this?
Today I went to the bathroom at work. I tried to go into the stall by the window but it was locked. So I went into the next stall and force of habit, looked at my neighbor's feet. Except, I couldn't see any. Which I thought was odd. So naturally, I bent over even further. And there were her feet. She was doing #2 (or rather, waiting until I left to do it) so she raised her feet to be anonymous.
I kinda get it, and kinda think it's crazy. It's not like we all don't have the same bodily needs from time to time.
Then again, who hasn't gone into a bathroom and acted horrified at the smell that you encountered.
Maybe in the end we all just want to give off the impression of being perfect? If that's the case, I've failed!
And I guess the real question is ... do you do #2 in public places?
