Royal Flush

This year’s USA Pro Challenge cycling race came through my city, and in a fit of hometown pride, DH and I signed up to be volunteers.  We thought we would be course marshals, but we ended up in the VIP Tent doing early morning setups.  Volunteers are easy: give us free t-shirts, free food (left over from breakfast for the amateur racers), and a couple of drinks vouchers, and we are happy campers.  IMG_2533
But probably the highlight of my day was the VIP luxury restroom trailer.  No VIPs were around — the governor had shown up earlier, made a brief speech, and sent the amateur racers on their way, but he was long gone.  Feeling VERY IMPORTANT, I used the women’s restroom.  Yes I did.  It was air-conditioned, it had running hot and cold water, and the toilets flushed.  It was, as they say, as pictured and described.  Who knew portable toilets could be so high-end?  Certainly not Opie and her new baby sister, Tula:
