Attention all you dad's out there:  I made a mistake that I'll never make again.  While getting ready for work yesterday morning, I, at some point, was holding my son.  Just before leaving to drive to work, I started to think to myself, "Did he pee on me?".  Don't ask me how it could even be a question - Suffice to say, there was doubt in my mind that it happened.  I decided I was being ridiculous, and just went on my merry way.

Then, I'm sitting in my cube about an hour later, and all of a sudden, this odor hits me.  It was a smell like a Urinal Cake, a little past it's prime.  It didn't take long for me to recall my thoughts as I was leaving for work an hour before.  Immediately, I'm thinking to myself, "What can I possibly do about this?!  I can not go through the rest of the day, smelling like I have a problem going to the bathroom!"  I came to the conclusion that the only thing I could do effectively was to get in my car, and run to the nearest department store, and buy a new shirt.

Making this story even more embarrassing is that I had to tell both my manager, and my team lead what was going on.  I work in a pretty lax environment.  Usually, I can come and go as I please, as long as I put in my eight hours.  Unfortunately, I was working on a time-sensitive project, and I didn't want to cause undo stress if someone were to be looking for me while I was out.  So as I said, I had to tell those two people what I was doing, and why.  The jokes haven't started yet, but I'm expecting them.

Anyway, moral of the story is:  If you think your child has peed on you, don't assume anything.  Just change the article of clothing in question, and continue on your day, avoiding any embarrassment.

This concludes your public service announcement for the week.  You may now continue with your regularly-scheduled activities.
