But then you experience the awkward "do I make weird noises when drinking water" thing, the "Oh wow I have to pee how do I leave this group of people nicely" thing, and the "bathroom awkwardness" thing. <<< yeah that's true
Funny story: I was actually outside one time cleaning our pool and i heard a bang. To sum it up, i freaked out and never learned if it was a gunshot or a firecracker. but being in the south i have to see that it was probably a gunshot in a small city .
