Man Down In Bathroom

Initial report filters down to me that a man has fallen in the upstairs men's room. Will I investigate? Yes, I will investigate!

I go to the upstairs men's room and it is empty except for the handicapped stall. It is easy to see that under the partition a man is lying on his back. His head appears to be somewhere near the base of the toilet and he is moving around just enough to suggest life and consciousness.

I tap lightly on the door. "You okay in there?" I ask.

"I'm good." He answers.

He's good.

I report my experience around the library and to The People In Charge and check back after about 45 minutes. Whoever is in that stall now is sitting, which is more the usual and requires no knock.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
