Everybody poops . . . and everybody reads what gets written on the bathroom stalls. It’s like an accident that you just can’t help glancing at as you drive by. I would rather read what’s written by some bathroom scholar than the advertisements in the glass case anyways.
Most of what’s written is bathroom humor . . . well . . . what do you expect in the bathroom, but sometimes there’s wisdom hidden amongst the scrawled turds. Sometimes it’s just what puts that smile on your face. I image the first person; besides the bathroom wall scribe of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone first chapter; came into the stall . . . sat down . . . looked up . . . started reading and other biological functions . . . recognized the work . . . smiled . . . and then fell off the John while trying to get close enough to read that small writing. One has to suffer for one’s art.
So it turns out the beautiful mind behind the World Wonder that is the Harry Potter Bathroom Stall belongs to 17-year-old Caitlyn Gallagher, who says it took her 4 hours and 3 sharpies to write the entire first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone on the wall of a bathroom stall at her school.
Caitlyn says, “I did it over four days i’d go after school for an hour and write as much as i could, lock the door, and crawl underneath and put an “out of order” sign on it so no one would go in there until i was finished lol.”
Now that the Caitlyn is out of the bag so to speak, I would think that Caitlyn will be spending some more time in that stall . . . with some rags and whatever chemical the Janitor can scrap up to take that off the stall wall.
Nerdbastards says Well Done Caitlyn! You are a Nerdbastard of Real Genius!
