We were sitting in our favorite coffee shop this a.m., watching the wind and rain outside the window, when the owner walked over to our table.
She declared with a mischievous grin: "A man was waiting outside the men's restroom, and I told him, 'It's okay to use the women's restroom, as long as you put the seat down when you're done. We don't like falling into the toilet!'... I was serious about that. Do you think I'm bad for saying that?"
I guess you'd KNOW my answer to that, when I tell you I raised three sons. That means I was the only girl in the house for many years, among four males.
By the way, when that man came out of the ladies' room, it turns out he was a tall, handsome, well-dressed guy indeed. He smiled at us, winking as he passed our table and informing us: "I put the lid down."
I think the proprietor and I agreed---that guy is welcome to return whenever he pleases.
