I am fairly anxious when it comes to being places on time, especially places I am not familiar with finding in Calgary's crazy traffic, so I left early, really early. I got to the airport with plenty of time to spare and drove through the "Arrivals" loop twice, just to make sure I knew where I was going to pick them up. Satisfied that I had a plan, I drove to the new "Cell phone waiting area" and parked my car. I had my coffee, a tabloid magazine, the Kenny and Dolly Country Christmas CD and my seat heaters so I was comfy while I waited for Aim to call. There were several other cars in the lot, obviously waiting for planes to arrive so I wasn't alone. I caught up on Tom and Katie, Paris Hilton, Jenn and Brad and Angelina while I sipped my Starbucks Venti Latte. Delicious! It wasn't long before I felt the urge to pee. It was just a little urge, so I ignored it. Eventually the little urge turned into one I could not ignore. I looked around but there were no washroom facilities in sight. I tried to tell myself I could hold it and wait, but I had already been waiting and I could not wait anymore. The feeling became overwhelming, almost painful. Apparently a Venti is way bigger than my bladdar! The car at the end of the row left to meet his passengers and I steered my jetta over to his spot. I was going to have to pee right there in the parking lot, I had no other options! I got out of the driver's seat, walked over to the passenger side, opened the door, quickly squatted beside it and peed. I only had enough nerve to squat there for a few seconds, peeing long enough to relieve the pressure before pulling up my jeans and heading back to the driver's side! I can see the headlines now "French Teacher relieves herself in public...." let's hope no one got a real close look!!!
Mental Note, "do not drink a venti coffee while sitting in the Cell Phone waiting area!!!!!"
