This isn't the other embarrassing moment that I had originally intended to post but my sister, Bonnie, reminded me of it in a comment on my previous embarrassing moment post. She later told me a part of the story that I didn't know until now.
After New Orleans and Las Vegas, my next favorite city is Galveston including the Crystal Beach area. We usually try to rent a beach cabin on Crystal Beach for a week every summer and there is absolutely nothing more relaxing. Crystal Beach has great little local bars and restaurants (Sharkey's, Stingaree, Mama Theresa's, Coba's). Yeah, it's time for a beach trip.
My embarrassing moment happened in Galveston. We had gone into Galveston which is across Galveston Bay from Crystal Beach. You get there by ferry which I also love. I don't remember why we were in Galveston but we had lunch (probably at Gaido's) and after we ate, we were standing around by the front door and I told Bonnie I had to use the restroom.
I went into the restroom and the first thing I noticed were urinals on the wall. It never occurred to me that I had accidentally walked into the Men's Room. I just wondered why there were urinals in the Ladies' Room. After about five seconds (a long time when standing in the restroom of the opposite sex), I realized what I had done and hauled ass out of there.
The part that Bonnie later told me about, which makes it even more embarrassing, is that my entire family saw me go into the Men's Room. They saw me. They discussed it ("Did Laurie just go into the Men's Room?" "Yep."). But, no one went in after me. They just stood there waiting for the punchline to my little impromptu joke.
I owe them one big time.
