Swine flu fizzled out, but there's a new epidemic raging. I first wrote about The-Cows-Are-Out phenomenon a couple weeks back when a preschooler informed me that our classroom was out of paper towels. A tiny herd of children with undried hands stared up at me waiting for a dispenser refill.
This phenomenon is spreading rapidly. A healthy septuagenarian came to me today to report this dire news:
It is dark in the restroom.
Good golly, Mizz Molly, weez all agonna die. If I couldn't find the light switch in a public restroom, I'd be far too embarrassed to report it to the hired help, let alone expect their assistance.
