I was never the kind of kid to get embarrassed. I was shameless and fearless–I just wanted to be goofy. I was a high energy, running around, shouting out my opinions, rolling on the floor kind of kid in elementary school. If something I did made my classmates laugh, good. If it didn’t, well, it made chocolate milk come out of my nose. My ego was pretty much made of steel until 4th grade.
One day at school I really had to go to the bathroom. No like, I REALLY did. I ran out of the girl’s line in the hallway and into the bathroom like Speedy Gonzales.
As I ran, I undid my belt buckle, I unbuttoned my shorts, I unzipped my pants–I was about to BLOW.
I burst into the first bathroom stall, pulled my shorts down, and sat on the toilet seat. I thought, this seat feels soft and warm. I turned my head around and–AH! There was a person there. I was sitting on some poor girl’s lap. Yeah, I may have peed a little.
I recollected myself, got up at lightening speed, and went into an empty stall. Until this day I can vividly recall the stunned eyes of my victim, gazing up at me in awe, probably thinking something like, “What kind of freak would do this sort of thing?”
And that, my friends, is how you realize you’re not invincible.
