absurd

i should change my blog title to - "absurdities," and this should be my first post. yesterday, went to a caribbean restaurant in columbia city, and this is what they decided to advise the general public regarding the use of their urinal:


my second absurdity would be something about stepping in a soft, mushy pile of dog poop on the way to my car this morning. its seattle i tell you... the rain had the pile all squishy and soaked through. and to top it all off, i didn't realize what i'd stepped in until i got in my car and smeared it all over the carpet. i sat there wondering what that smell was, "did somebody leave a vietnamese sandwhich under my seat?" and then i looked down and saw it... light brown too. and then in my subsequent frenzy (i stopped the car twice to wipe it off in the grass on the side of the street) i spilt my diet cherry pepsi all over myself.

i tried to clean it outa my car and off the bottom of my shoe... but it never really works. i can still smell it. in fact, if i breathe in deeply enough, i can smell the poop right here where i sit, even though my shoe looks clean enough for a white glove test. its gonna be the fish sauce story all over again. a real poop emergency.

Sick sick sick. If you want to feel better than read my friend Lindsey's post about her week...kid vomit, kid poop, and dog poop...she didn't get a break from the stenches...messes in her car, her house and at the store.

Hmmm... My question is what the other guys were thinking when you busted out the camera phone in the urinal-with-no-dividers section of the bathroom. Didn't you break some unwritten rule by capturing this image...

one guy offered to pose next to the urinal, but i told him that i'd pass... (actually, i was alone in the bathroom; but even so, i still broke some rule i am sure.)
