Conversations about how to write, publishing, writing, and tips for writers
This is an old post, but I'm just now reading it. I laughed through the whole thing! I've been there, done that. Recently after lathering up my hands in a restaurant ladies room, I couldn't get the automatic faucet to turn on. So, I carefully sidestepped to the one beside it. That one wouldn't turn on either -- but the original one did! I quickly moved in front of the original, but the water shut off just as I thrust my hands beneath it. I finally managed to get one of the faucets to turn on (how I don't know) and rinsed my hands QUICKLY. I went out to one of the waitresses and asked her which dance steps were required for the faucets to comply with our wishes. She said she always gets them to work when she holds her tongue to the left.
