You know how sometimes there's music playing in public restrooms? In yet another example proving that working at a public radio station is never ordinary, I walked into the ladies' restroom this afternoon and nearly bumped into an opera singer performing an aria from Carmen.
And when I say performing, I mean she was all-out singing at the top of her lungs. The music was soaring through the restroom and reverberating off the walls (there are some really great acoustics in there). She was also wearing a gypsy blouse and peasant skirt and was barefoot. She was definitely embracing the part.
I did what I had come to do...all while being serenaded with my own personal opera performance. I felt a little bad about flushing the toilet right in the middle of her song.
