"Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today" (from New York, New York)

This is what happens when I travel.

I had a meeting with the incredibly lovely and talented Kim Meisner in New York.

We had decided to meet at Starbucks. After our 5 hour meeting, Kim left to take care of her precious and beautiful daughter Isabel, and meet her husband Tommy for dinner.

Kim had wanted to walk me to my car, but before driving back to New Haven, I wanted to stop off at the bathroom, so I told her to go ahead without me.

I was in line for the bathroom and this young woman had gone in before me. Soon....there were 7 people in line and the woman in the bathroom was taking a really long time. So this guy in back of me was really pissed and started BANGING on the door. I looked at him and said, "thanks, she's gonna think it's me and come out of there and KICK MY ASS." Everyone laughed and he said not to worry that he would protect me. The line got so long, the woman who worked behind the counter had to yell out which line was for the bathroom and which line was for the coffee.

FINALLY the woman came out, looks at the crowd and says, "gee, what a big line." The guy in back of me says, "did you take a fucking shower in there?"

So I went in, took the fastest pee I ever took in my life, and not caring if my pants were on or off and came out.

As I came out, the guy after me says, "way to go GIRLIE, that's how you do it." As everyone laughed and clapped, I took a bow and said, "people from Connecticut know how to do it."

It was pretty funny.

LOVE THAT STARBUCKS!!!

I can't tell you how many times I've wondered what the heck women do in those stalls. I pee very fast too! Really, it's not hard.

I always wonder why people take so long in a public bathroom?? I like to go fast too -no reason to hang out in a bathroom.
So funny!

The Starbucks piece is HILARIOUS!! Loved it. (And you know we're sisters when it comes to Starbucks. I still owe you from Monday morning's rush out the door.)
