The Roller Skate Toilet

I went roller skating today, at the local roller rink, it was really fun. Being on skates again ( not inline but Quads) made me feel like a kid. I even have the blisters on the balls of both of my feet, just like I did as a kid. But, here is the one difference, the bathroom situation. I went in to use the restroom, which is always a dangerous situation while skating on tile or near wet time. I rolled precariously into the stall and shut the door. Just as the kid in the stall next to me slipped in her skates on the tile and fell half in the toilet and half of her took out the toilet paper dispenser off the wall. Laughing at the poor kid, I locked my door and got ready to sit down. As I lowered my butt to the impending toilet seat, I was shocked at how far I had to go before I reached it. Then as I was sitting comfortably and doing what nature calls for. I realized that my ankles, which sat so uncomfortably in my rented skates were now officially higher than my ass. The toilet was one that I think you would normally find in a preschool. It was about 3 inches off the ground. Now, this normally would not be a problem. I would normally stand up when finished and move on with my day. But, it is now that I realize that I need to be able to support my weight with my feet, to be able to stand up. And yet my feet are stuck in these ugly moveable forces. All I keep picturing is me trying to get up and my legs just sliding out in front of me and ending up like that poor kid in the next stall. This is even more of a difficult task than I thought, because my jeans are down past my knees and they are not helping the situation. I had to sit there for a minute to figure out a plan of attack, anything to avoid some sort of toilet bowl head injury. Don’t ask me how I did it, but I did manage to stand up without injury or falls.  But, it was touch and go there for a minute. Never a dull moment in LoLa- land.
