Frightful Feelings

Most college students fear the library.

It's usually because of the normal things: reading, studying, quietness...

Not I. I fear the library for an entirely different reason:

The men's restroom.

It's pink! How is any man supposed to concentrate on taking a study break when the walls of the stalls surrounding him constantly taunt him?

Ever have that nightmare where you walked into the wrong restroom by chance?

That's what it's like every time I do business at the library. I swing open the door, shudder at the color, and force my mind to accept the situation.

I thought bathroom colors were a universal language. Blue = Men. Pink = Women.

Go anywhere in the world and you'll see regular colors for the men's restroom. But pink? No. Never. Not once, except for in the library on Lee's campus.

I think I've been traumatized for life.
