    I was locked in a Porta-Potti at the time.  Not good.

      In the spirit of kinship, I did chuckle.  That would suck.  

      I recall once, I was sitting on an airplane, returning from Germany.  I was cutting a piece of ham.  

      And then.

      I was telling the flight attendant in first class to stop waking me up, because I was sleeping.  

      It's still the only time I've ever flown first class.  I wish I could remember it.

      When I was 13 a new Kmart opened, and it was like the biggest thing to happen in town in decades...

      Anyway, it was within walking distance from my house, my parents were working, and I needed tampons, so I walked on over to buy some...

      And then had a tonic clonic in the feminine hygiene aisle, somehow managing to pull the shelves down, so flopping about, pissing myself, foaming at the mouth, the whole bit, among hundreds of feminine hygiene products... At 13... With pretty much the whole town watching....

      So not only did the entire school now know the new girl was epileptic... They ALSO knew I was having my period...

      It was like the perfect combination of every 13 year old girl's nightmares. I remember BEGGING my parents to move, or at least never make me go back to that school again.

      It's a funny story to tell now, but at the time... OMG! Lol!
