Singing in the...

There was a tall, somewhat athletic woman who walked ahead of me into the ladies room this morning. She apparently works across the hall at another company, and I have seen her just once before so perhaps she is new. She is young, maybe late 20's, and attractive in a natural, hip sorta way. From the way she dresses and carries herself I wondered briefly if she played on my team. Could go either way I decided, and entered a stall.

That's when she started to hum... or even sort of sing softly as she entered the far stall. I thought this curious - and thought how people don't really sing much, and certainly I have never heard singing in the ladies room.
Should I consider this odd? Would this make me uncomfortable? Was this woman very happy? Was she melancholy? Clearly she was confident.
My mind was wandering down this path when I paused it to listen. The sound was genuinely beautiful. Sweet and sultry and only added to by that wondrous tiled-room echoey reverb. It was enchanting. I was surprised at myself for so thoroughly enjoying it.
And then it was over, interrupted by the rush of flowing waters and the soft thud of the door.

I have just refilled my water bottle, and anticipate several trips to the ladies room today.

Just take in a wireless notebook and work out of a stall. That why you'll be sure not to miss her ; )

We have a bathroom singer in my building. I always count encountering her as serendipity.

Ok, that would probably make me feel uncomfortable, but interesting none the less. Enjoy!

Haven't you heard? Humming is the lesbian equivalent of restroom foot-tapping among gay men and closeted Republican congressmen.

Did she wash her hands? How many paper towels did she use? ~LIZ

I think it would freak me out to hear someone singing in a work bathroom. Just get in, do your business, and get back to business.

LOL @ Teresa!
