I was barely
sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:
"Hi, how are you?"
I'm not the type to start a conversation in the men's restrooms at a rest
stop but, I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat
embarrassedly: "Doin Just Fine!"
And the other guy says: "So what are you up too?"
What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too
bizarre so I say: "Uhhh I'm like you, just traveling east!"
At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear
Can I come over to your place after while?
Ok, this question is just wacky but I figured I could just be polite and
end the conversation.
I tell him, "Well, I have company over so today is a bad day for me!"
Then I hear the guy say nervously...
"LISTEN!!!! I'll have to call you back, there's an idiot in the other stall
who keeps answering all my questions.
To the world, you may
just be somebody...but to somebody, you may be the world.
