New Year's Eve Failure

Because of the fact that all of my friends in college seem to be out of state every New Year's Eve, I always end up just hanging out with the fam bam. Not that it's not fun to do that, but when one's a senior in college and has spent every New Years with their family, one begins to feel a bit like a loser. Especially since the year before I ended up going to bed at eleven.. somehow I still have my dignity intact. This year I was determined to go to a party and experience a real college New Years Eve. Luckily, I actually had some friends around who also happened to h ave mad connections. We set forth to Lindon where all the cool parties are (that's where the rich people live) and commenced to participate in all the fun and gaiety that is expected on such a night.
Three minutes before midnight I realized I had to use the restroom. Figuring I had time, I hurried to the bathroom. When I went to exit said bathroom I twisted the door handle... nothing. Not too alarmed I twisted again.. still nothing. The door handle wasn't budging at all. Repeatedly I twisted and tugged but to no avail. Full panic ensued as I realized it was close to count down, I didn't have my phone on me, and here I was stuck in a bathroom like some helpless tw0 year old. Frantically I kept pulling but I could hear the people outside counting down.. 3, 2, 1.. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I screamed in horror which brought me back to reality. I realized I'd just had a mini day dream and as luck would have it, it was still 2011. Being the problem solver I am I decided to try just pulling on the lock to escape from the bathroom prison. Instantly it came free and the door opened. I calmly pulled myself back together and joined my friends with a minute to spare. Crisis averted.
