Talk About Being Caught with Your Pants Down...

I'm at work.
It's time to go run the office errands.
I decide I need to tinkle first.
So I'm sitting in the bathroom,
(That's what we females do, sit)
When suddenly there is a horrendous BOOM,
And as suddenly a crack appears on the bathroom wall.
I don't think I've moved that fast in a long time.
(My feet, not my bowels.)
I jumped up and pull up at the same time.
Reach for the stall door and have a second thought.
I better flush.
Out the door I go and into the main break room.
Ye Gads, the wall is caved in!
Yep, someone hit the building with their car.
We do not have a drive-thru in our building.
OK, so I run across the hall and tell my
office mates someone ran into the building.
Back across the hall to look out of the break room window.
Yep, a car and two people helping.
Back across the hall, yes it's a car, they have help.
I'm informed they've called the emergency services.
Turned out to be an 85 year old driver on oxygen.
I'm, pleases to announce she is ok.
Her air bag deployed,
she's shook up,
but ok.
And I'm just thankful she wasn't one car space to the left
or she'd have caught me with my pants down.
(My apologies, I just couldn't resist.)
Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Yourself,
