When Urinal the Way

“We’re in something together. If this is who you are, you challenge people to be in all the way, and you explain what that means. Then you have to show them that you’re in all the way. That’s just how it is.”
– Bob Bradley

Public urinals are much like restaurant servers: rarely available when you need them. Yesterday at the beach, I stood in line waiting my turn to enter the restroom in front of a young boy – I’m guessing he was 8 or 9 – who was giving it all he had to be patient. He’d apparently waited too long to find the restrooms. The discomfort he felt was demonstrated not only in the distressed contortions that seized his face, but in the odd, birdlike dance he was engaged in. Clearly, he faced a challenge and was in all the way. As the door at last opened and a cloud of foul, hair-curling air followed the previous patron from the confines of the small public facility, I suddenly felt great compassion for the boy and urged him to go on and take his turn ahead of me.
