I was holding an open copy of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin In The Sun in my right hand. In my left hand I was holding the hard-boiled egg that I was eating. I was also standing in front of the toilet, taking a freestyle and well-deserved pee.
When I tried to turn the page one-handed, the book fell out of my hand, plummeting towards the in-use toilet bowl. I reacted like a ninja, bringing one knee up and altering the trajectory of the book so that it fell in the bathtub.
My egg wasn’t so lucky. It fell into the toilet. The wall wasn’t so lucky either. My whiplash reactions and high-kicking savagery left me with an unprecedented amount of urine to clean off the walls, sink, and mirror.
After cleaning that very same mirror, I looked deep into my own eyes and said, Time for a change, laddie. There must be a better way.
