  • Just do your business, and get out of there

    Strange things happen in public restrooms.  I don’t mean the kinds of things that make headlines when pop singer George Michael or former Republican Sen. “Wide Stance” Larry Craig hang around stalls, looking for action that should take place a reasonable distance from toilets. I’m just talking about everyday, run-of-the-mill, casual comments and quirks that accompany human beings in their perpetual quest to rid themselves of bodily waste.
    I told you a few years ago how my cousin Kelley chunked a rock into a septic tank outside an outdoor facility at Lake Fort Gibson, causing a backsplash that doused her brother and me in unspeakable filth.

The woman paid with food stamps, waddled out the door, and drove away in a late-model Lincoln Continental.
