A girl gets a surprise when her friend uses the outhouse for hiding during hide and seek.
The most embarrassing outhouse experience I had occurred when I was twelve years old. I was attending a little one-room rural school, where outhouses for boys and girls were discreetly erected some distance from each other, and also from the schoolhouse. It was during the noon recess. The students decided to play hide-and-seek. I had to pay a visit to the outhouse and my best friend, Louise, slipped in to hide in there. She watched through a crack while the boy who was "it" counted. When she saw her chance to get to base without getting caught, she flung the door wide and ran as fast as she could! Well, Louise happily made it to base without getting caught, but there I sat, on the throne, in full view of everybody. My skirt was not long enough to cover my bloomers, and I could not get up to close the door without exposing even more. All I could do was sit there, mortified, while all of the kids stared, and then went into hysterical fits of laughter. The girls doubled over from laughing so hard, and the boys rolled on the ground.
Finally, after what seemed like a century, Louise 'came back, slammed the door quickly, and beat a hasty retreat before I could get my clothes rearranged and take after her. I wonder why I was the only one who was not amused?
