New to A Lady Reveals Nothing? You've missed SO MUCH. Not to worry. Every Sunday, I dig through the archives to repost an old favorite. Mostly because I'm too lazy to come up with new content every single day. Enjoy! This story originally appeared on October 30, 2008, when I was on my way home from South Africa and had a lengthy layover in New York:
7 hour layover.
Called mom and dad.
Shopped for stuff.
Bought a coffee cup.
Read my book.
Went to the bathroom, where -- and I am not kidding about this -- (stop reading if you're a proper person with manners or a human being) I pooped the word "hi", lowercase, complete with a dotted "i". I couldn't believe it. I reached to get my camera to take a picture, but the automatic flusher thought I was done and flushed it all away. And then I cursed technology forever.
Goodbye New York with your fancy toilets with unforgiving motion detectors.
