My husband and I went to dinner and a show with some very good friends.
Apparently I took the "very" part a little too seriously because when we got to the movie theater and walked in my friends husband announced he was going to use the restroom. "Oh! Great idea, I don't want to leave during the show!" I said enthusiastically.
I turned to get my ticket from my husband, then walked to the bathroom and went right in.
I stood there for a minute stunned.
"This is strange" I thought to myself. "Why would Lisa's* husband be in the womens bathroom?"
Even stranger still was the fact that there were urinals in the womens bathroom.
It took a few too many seconds for everything to register.
A few too many seconds as I inappropriately stared at my friends husband standing in front of the urinal. But I wasn't looking, I was more in a state of confusion. And no I didn't see anything I shouldn't have! It was more of a "one of these things is not like the others" kind of stare, while my brain was trying to catch up to the situation.
I turned bright red as the realization of everything hit me.
Then I started laughing.
Bob* turned to look at me.
He raised his eyebrows and gave me a look of confused wonder.
I laughed again, said sorry and ran out as fast as I could. I went across the hall to the womens bathroom and I could not stop laughing.
I never did ask if he got gun shy after that. That would just be too much information!
The rest of the night I would laugh whenever I looked at him. I don't think he appreciated it too much towards the end.
