Surprise, Surprise

Well, the new public pay bathrooms have started appearing around the city. Only one so far actually and I had the fortuitous opportunity to come across in a desperate time of need. The perfect coincidence. The toilet had been unveiled that very day in the news and here I was, at 1am in Herald Sq, forced off my speedy, warm D train whisking me home by a deep seated need to relieve myself. As I dashed out of the subway I remembered  the newscast and soon came upon the gleaming metal shack looking for all the world like a closed news stand. As I neared, quarter in hand,  I looked for the coin-slot and there, gleaming like HAL was a red OUT OF ORDER light.

Yeah. Thats about right
