I was a little nervous about meeting these particular friends because I wasn't the super outgoing, confident woman I am today [wink], and they were all super brains, you know the kind who can make you feel inadequate just by looking at you. Did I mention they were musicians, too? I felt a bit like a goldfish who had just flopped out of his bowl - can someone give me a hand here?
However, this is what really made it different. Would you like fries with that? Can I buy you a drink? These are normal questions asked by strangers. Upon our arrival, and at the point where one would be escorted inside and offered a drink, our hostess asked? "Would you like to use the bathroom?"
Pause. What? Um- maybe later, but I will take a jumbo-sized margarita if you have one...thanks! No, I didn't say that...I just accepted her unique hospitality.
What was even more strange than the question, though, was the facility itself. It was separated from the rest of the room by a curtain. Just a curtain to flap in the breeze. No door, no lock for privacy, just a curtain. Hubby-to-be stood guard. That was our first and last such get together.
Got a "strange" story to share?
