Drum Roll Please....

Wow! A record setting 17 comments! It started out kind of slow but you folks really came through in the end! Here's the rest of the story...

So I got dressed in the dark the other day; no problem right?

I went to work and started doing my thing and about mid-morning realized that I needed to use the restroom (#1). So I pulled up the large jug that I keep under my desk just for such an occurrence...

Just kidding...sorry....

I left my office and walked down the hall to the men's restroom which at our company is marked only by the "male sign". You know, a circle with an arrow coming out from it. I can't tell you how many times I have had to instruct bewildered visitors as to which door they should go through to use the room that is for their particular gender. I'm amazed at how many people don't know what those signs mean.

Anyway....

I walked up to my favorite urinal (there's only one), unzipped my pants and started searching for my...you know...

I couldn't find it!

The fact that I would even say that speaks volumes to the security that I have in my own masculinity but I guess what I really mean is that I couldn't get to it. It was still there but I couldn't find the fly in my boxer shorts (Ah Ha! now you all know what kind of underwear I wear). I kept digging around in my shorts trying to find the opening but it wasn't there; it was very surreal! I figured for sure it was there and my shorts had just gotten twisted around a bit but no, I couldn't find my fly!

After a few really weird minutes I realized what had happened...

I put my underwear on backwards that morning when I got dressed in the dark!

I felt very silly but I have to admit that I was too lazy to worry about fixing the problem. I bought this new pair of hiking boots and I have been wearing them to work everyday in order to break them in for an Appalachian Trail hike that I am going on this weekend. The laces are kind of a pain to do and un-do so I decided to just leave my underwear the way it was. Besides, with my fly on the other end of things, if I needed to go #2....never mind....sorry....

So the winner is...

Shelia!

Congratulations! I will have to figure out what you're prize is and deliver it to you ASAP!

Pete buddy...you really need to get off the pipe...

Until next time...

WHAT! I'm miffed now... I demand a recount! This is as bad as Al Gore's presidency being robbed!

Someone get the Referee. I want to see the camera footage of that play. (no i don't)

Well, you should comfort yourself in the fact that it was probably George Bush's fault you didn't get things pointed the right direction.

You should write a letter to congress demanding "exits" on both sides of boxers.

Hey, WAIT a minute, Shelia said INSIDE OUT, not BACKWARDS! There IS a difference, try it, you'll see...

And what about a prize for creativity?? There was a LOT of creativity goin' on, and you don't REALLY want to stifle THAT now, do you??

Now you may get 17 MORE comments with this post- ha!

I got run over by a boat, and all you can come up with is "my underwear was on backwards."

Mental note: don't go work in a sound and video company.
