Yesterday, I had an oral history interview in Carrollton. I got a little lost trying to find the interviewee's house in this kind of winding residential area off Josey Lane. Pausing briefly on a quiet corner, I stopped to check my map and directions.
About 50 feet in front of me on the opposite side of the street was an elderly gentleman walking slowly with a cane. Upon arriving at the wooden fence at the corner house, the man turned to faced the fence, unzipped his pants, and proceeded to pee.
Shocked by accidentally witnessing this behavior, I took my car out of park and started to drive down the street. I guess the old man hadn't seen me, because my suddenly moving car seemed to startle him. He quickly zipped up his pants, turned in my direction, smiled and waved in a way that seemed to say, "this will be our little secret."
My question is: did the old man suddenly have to pee while walking (hey, it happens) or did he intentionally walk to the corner to relieve himself on his neighbor's wood fence?
