Restroom encounter with Senator John McCain

I've had plenty of unusual moments and odd stories to share in my life. I was able to add another one to my repertoire yesterday.

I had a conversation with Senator John McCain with my penis in my hand.

It's really not as racy as I make it sound. I was packing up my gear to leave work and decided I needed to urinate before I made the drive home. So, I headed to the restroom. When I walked in there was a man in a suit flushing the urinal and walking over to the sink. As I was about to take my turn at the urinal, I recognized the man in the suit as United States Senator John McCain.

Senator McCain is not only one of the two Senators from Arizona, he also had a run at the Presidency of the United States a handful of years ago. He's one of the most powerful people in the country.

The conversation was short. He asked me how I was doing. I said "Nobody's killed me today." (I say that often when I can't think of a better response when that question is asked). He mentioned that there was still time left in the day and I told him that it was the end of my workday so my chances of survival were pretty good. We then had a conversation about Twitter and what kinds of things some of his Twitter followers say to him, and then he left the restroom.

All this while I was peeing... with my man junk in my hand.

He was in the building to do an interview on the 5 p.m. newscast. I didn't know he was at the station until the encounter in the restroom.

There are not many people that can say they've chatted with a former Presidential candidate, longtime U.S. Senator, and war hero while they're holding their boy parts in their hand. I'm sure I'm on a short list of people who can add that to their resume'.

He has no idea who I am and likely doesn't care. I don't have any interest in politics but I do appreciate the work he does and the impact it has on most Americans. He had a long history of service to the people of Arizona and America. It was an encounter I'll never forget. Mostly because not it's not often something exciting or interesting happens when I have my penis in my hand.

Thanks Senator McCain. This encounter added another epic story to my often ridiculous life. I'm also glad that he washed his hands after peeing. The flu is going around and it'll help him avoid getting sick.

It should be designated a historical landmark.
