Thankful blog - Day 17 - Christie Tapscott
ME: Hey – what are you doing?
CHRISTIE: Just working. What’s up?
ME: Well, ummm… this is embarrassing. I REALLY gotta potty and I have the baby and I don’t want to put her down and the bathrooms are disgusting and I just don’t think I can hold it and I feel so freaking old and I can’t believe I’m asking someone to HOLD MY BABY while I go to the bathroom….
CHRISTIE: Hahahahaha. It’s fine. I will meet you at the door.
So, I get the baby out of the car and carry her THROUGH the rain into the back entrance of the courthouse. It was cold and it was raining, but people, I HAD TO GO!
When I get inside, Christie is standing there talking to the security man who runs the metal detector. When he sees me, he just waved me through.
CHRISTIE: I told him you were my friend and I’m just going to hold your baby while you PEE.
Oh, gee… thanks Christie.
Anyway, it all ended well. I emptied the bladder (which has apparently shrunk to the size of a thimble) and Christie got to show off the baby to all her co-workers. She was, by the way, deemed the most beautiful baby any of them had ever seen.
See…. When I was thankful for my friends a few days ago, THIS kind of thing is what I was talking about. Do you have friends you can call to hold your kids while you pee? I sure hope so!
