I was talking on the wall phone.* Because I was standing still during my conversation, I was just staring at the floor and I noticed something. It looked just like a black bean, which I thought odd.
Why would a black bean be there, so far away from the table?
I kept on chatting, reached down and picked up the black bean.
As soon as I touched it, I knew it wasn't a black bean. I still didn't realize what it was...I just knew it wasn't a black bean.
Perhaps a refried black bean, I thought.
I'm was chatting away as I sniffed the "bean."
Realizing that the bean belonged in a toilet, the chat ended immediately as I could no longer form coherent words.
I'm sure there are some things you should never get used to. Touching poop is sitting at the top of the list!
*Yes we still have a wall phone. It's so convenient when the phone is ringing off the wall and no portable in sight. Try it.
