I made it...although the last five steps were made with clenched thighs.
How can a grown girl of 31 almost not make it to the porcelain throne? I am a habitual procrastinator. Now, I don't procrastinate big things. No, I pay the bills on time, I plan church lessons, and buy birthday gifts/cards on time. In fact, I'm often early! No, no, I just procrastinate little things like the niggling of a full bladder. I procrastinate the quick run to the post office-leaving the gifts and cards languishing unsent on my counter. I often receive quick thoughts to send a card or a give a call to check on a friend, but they pass just as quickly, momentarily unheeded by my procrastinating self. I wonder what good I could accomplish if I would slow down (or speed up) to pay attention to such thoughts, trips to the post, and taking the time to run to the loo.
I definitely wouldn't have written this post 3 days after the experience! ;)
