I was only an adjunct so I never got a key for the bathroom
and it was always just a little awkward to be peeing next
to a student who I would be teaching within the next
10 minutes. We gave each other the nod all guys give
approaching a line of urinals. "So you're here to pee too,
huh?" "It sure is white in here, huh?" Then the sounds
we make with our voluntary muscles and the thought
of having to explain later about the inaccuracy of using
two independent clauses on either side of the comma.
I only hope he doesn't notice that I always forget
to wash my hands.
