Ah Magoo! You’ve done it again!

mr-magoo1.gifEveryone remember Mr. Magoo? The loveable, but nearsighted, Magoo would get himself into and out of all manner of trouble. Never completely knowing that his near blindness had almost had harrowing, even fatal consequences.

At last Saturday evening’s football game the Esposa had a Mr. Magoo moment. It went down like this. We show up for our scheduled 4:00 pm game and find the previous game still going on, just after halftime. We realize that we have some time to kill in order to get the good seats. So we head out to the concession stand to purchase some overpriced snacks and drinks. As we are cruising around the stadium the following conversation takes place:

Esposa: They must be expecting a big crowd tonight.

Yours Truly: Oh really? What makes you say that?

Esposa: They brought in Port-a-Potties.

Me: Where?

Her: There. Right in front of us. Are you blind?

(I look up to see this)


Me: What Port-a-Potties?

She: Duh! Behind the Men’s & Women’s signs.

Myownself: Those blue boxes? Honey those are the main electrical boxes that feed all the lights and electrical systems for Texas Stadium. Probably something like 1.21 Jiggawatts running through there.

Her: Oh. I wondered why the Port-a-Potties were locked.

Me: <Taking a picture>

Her: You’re not going to blog about this are you?

Me: Of course not.

    I could see that this report might result into a new form of Deep Fried Turkey for Thanksgiving.

    You are too hard. Such an oversight could happen to anyone who didn’t notice. . .

    1) The structures were permanently embedded in concrete

    2) They emitted a faint hum accompanied by the tangy aroma of freshly squeezed ozone

    3) They had no obvious ventilation apertures

    4) They were only present behind the ‘male’ sign. This must be some sort of code violation in the land of the free and the home of the potentially armed.

    Just trying to shift the focus from your sorry carcass northward, Semi. Pretty safe too since many northbound flights are delayed today due to snow!
