Fish Tacos

Fish tacos? Um, no thanks. In spite of not liking them in the first place, I really don't after today. As Sophia would say, "Picture It....."

07:00am *** Portland International Airport *** Men's Restroom Just Past Security

I enter the men's room completely alone, in uniform, pulling my little day bag behind me. There is no one in the place. It's completely quiet. I approach urinal #1, my usual. My bag is parked next to it where there is a bit of room for bags to be stashed temporarily. Doing my thing, faced straight ahead, until I hear two guys enter. I had to glance....after all, it's the men's room and one mustn't miss out on anything important. I see two of the most handsome straight (?) young guys enter. One goes into the stall right behind me, one continues down a few before he enters a stall as well. Remember, it's completely quiet -- until all hell breaks loose in one stall or the other. The doors shook. The paint cracked. I imagine that with that sort of exerted propulsion, that someone's ass cheeks actually probably rose up off of the toilet seat. And then, just as I'm zipping up in a hurry to leave, I hear it....out loud, clearly:

"Damned fish tacos. Never again." I couldn't agree more. And why, in spite of thinking that many straight men are sooooo dreamy and good looking, did I think less of them after this?

Agree 100%, fish tacos just sound gross, why would you even try them. Actually, I don't like fish at all, ha ha...

EW!!!! Both to the idea of fish tacos and for the description of the toilet symphony you had to hear! I would have rushed like a bat outta hell outta there w/o my zipper done!

Greg said...

After that, I don't believe that I will ever try a fish taco. Ew.....

it's the lack of elan
I dare say it is from watching too much football.

and don't eat fish tacos, whether gay or straight.

Definitely straight. I hear commentary from the stalls from time to time and it's always a dudely dude or two.

Fish tacos are great. You have to eat them at Rubio's - a fish taco chain in the San Diego area. I could run down and give you two a bag full as you transfer from the airport to your cruise ship!

i'm sorry but fish tacos just sounds like a euphymism for pussy. 'nuff said.

There's a book called "Everybody Poops". Unfortunately I think there needs to be a sequel called "Avoid the Tuna Taco".

Oh too funny! Never will I contemplate a fish taco nor will I ever be able to contain my laughter if ever I hear someone talk of one!

WAT said...

YUCK! Fish tacos must be liked by some people, because they still sell them right, although who in their right mind?

This bathroom story ends so tragically, because I was really hoping those two hot str8 boys would give us a good sex story of sorts in the stalls and...

Well, you get the idea.
