Ah The Good Ol' Days

My first time at Terri's turf, and I land on this post!

Anyway, it reminded me of a lunch at the Calcutta Club nearly twenty years ago. Cousin M (who will be 22 in a few days) needed to use the ladies' room and my mother took her. The room had been recently done up and was quite an attraction, what with the automatic hand dryer and the shiny new mirrors.

She and my mother were gone a while and only returned when we were just being served. To draw our attention to the exciting time she had been having, Cousin M on her return exclaimed out loud to the entire room, "We went and peed!" (She actually said "Amra hishi korey elam!")

My mother turned red and sank down into the nearest chair.
