Jennifer reminded me that I need to let you know about another experience here in
the Singapore airport.
Around 3:00 or 4:00 AM local time I couldn't take the taste in my mouth and
stumbled off to brush my teeth. By this time we'd moved from the floor to the
remarkably uncomfortable reclining chairs. I had earplugs in and my glasses off.
It is a quick walk across an empty concorse. A twist, a corner (past the 7-11)
and I turn into the bathroom. The sink is just inside the door and I brush my
teeth there. There is no mirror above the sink. So it's just me, the basin and
the beige tile walls. After a few minutes of scrubbing I decide I've had enough
brushing and put the tooth brush away. Turning to go I almost run into an Asian
(Japanese?) woman coming from the stall area. "Male or Female?" she asks.
OHMYGAWD! "I'm so sorry," I blurt out and quickly turn to dash out of the room.
On the way I almost bowl over another woman coming into the lavatory. Two quick
turns later I'm in the men's room. I need to use the toilet now.
