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.
