      That really was a bad day, Asher. Remember, we are all terminal. Live each day as if it were the last.

      seriously...most of that list happened to me yesterday. My spouse is now wanting me to spend my precious weekend off going through endless hours of medical care because I more than likely have whiplash from the car accident and my car looks like shit!

      pps, being a big person, I know all to well public stalls are created for size 0 people like my baby sister...

      I love that toilet sign for the hefty crowd. Fun hub mostly, only bad thing was the notice of terminally ill parent. Now that really is a bad day. Went through that one myself in '97.

      I tend to stay out of public stalls when I can, except for maybe a pee. Great hub, thumbs up.
