First off, I need to commend The Sneeze for another amazing entry:
Now on to the business at hand.
My love of awkward situations has been well chronicled through the years, but I plan to use The John Larroquette Project to share some of my all time favorite awkward moments. Sometimes these will be specific events that occurred, other times they will be generic situations that we have all experienced and enjoyed.
Today’s moment is the Awkward Tinkle.
A group of people are relaxing at somebody’s house and having a pleasant conversation (or maybe a small group study). One of them gets up and goes to a nearby bathroom to relieve themselves. Now, if one is lucky, a transcendent moment may occur. A lull in the conversation will directly coincide with the clear, distinct sound of somebody urinating. The response will be:
a) Uncomfortable laughter
b) Broken eye contact and prolonged silence.
Clearly B is the more humorous option. Sometimes rather than the sound of urination, the group may be privy to hearing the unmistakable sounds of defecation. This incredibly uncomfortable situation is both humiliating to all involved and hilarious to sadistic people like myself.
