Let me know if this has ever happened to you. The family and I were attending our Wednesday night church service last night. At ten minutes before the start of service, I made sure that both kids used the bathroom. On occasion, we have been caught in the middle of service to attend to a bathroom emergency. And since we usually sit towards the front of the church, it is a long walk past the knowing looks of the congregation to the back of the church when one of the kids has to go.
So as Number One Son and I entered the bathroom, a couple of other men were just exiting, leaving N1S and myself alone in the bathroom. We each took a stall. When N1S was finished, he went to the sink to wash his hands. After drying, he went out the door and out of habit, turned the lights off on his way out. That left me sitting in the complete dark. No windows, no emergency lights, no fancy church candles, complete blackness. To make matters worse, the toilet paper wouldn't unroll and I couldn't see where the end started. So I tried scratching all around the roll to find the end of the paper with no success. I knew church would be starting soon, so I gave the roll a vicious Price Is Right Wheel spin. That worked but I now had half a roll of paper on the floor. Just as I solved my paper problem, someone came into the bathroom and turned the lights back on. He was probably puzzled as to why the lights were off, but I'm sure he was even more confused when I came out of the stall a minute later.
I'm glad we both upheld the 'guy rule' of keeping our eyes down at all times in the bathroom. Hopefully, he didn't recognize me as I power walked to the sink and ducked out the door.
When I asked N1S why he shut off the lights, he said he didn't even remember doing it. I guess I will have to start bringing a flashlight to church.
