Years ago (maybe 2000 or so) I was in a bar in Denver and had to use the bathroom and found myself nest to this hippie-looking long haired dude. Something about him struck me as familiar, though, and I looked over at him and realized it was Neil Young. He and his band were in a private room watching a boxing match, but they had to use the public restroom. I gave him a nod of recognition and he nodded back. Then we zipped up and went our separate ways.
Two years ago I was at a Colorado basketball game peeing and this guy came up next to me. I am almost 6’4" and 235 pounds and don’t run into many people bigger than me regularly, but this guy was a fucking giant. It was Nate Solder, Tom Brady’s left tackle for the New England Patriots, a Colorado alum. He is 6’9" and about 330 lbs. Jesus.
I’ve peed next to Tommy Lee, although I didn’t realize it until a little late. In fact, when I left the men’s room, he was still there, changing his baby’s diaper. I only paid enough attention to notice a scruffy lookin’ dude covered in tattoos. It wasn’t until I saw him meet back up with Pamela Anderson outside that the light went on for me.
I’ve peed next to my horse (well away though – that’s an impressive stream from a considerable height), and my dogs, both alone on the trail. Other than that, well, ladies don’t typically have these moments.
