True story: Last night I was working at about 11 o’clock. Got up from my desk to take a piss. Walked into the bathroom, lifted the lid, peed …
And the liquid was red.
Anyhow, the wife was apparently asleep. I tiptoed into our bedroom. Lights off.
“You awake?” I asked.
“Yes,” she said.
“I think I have a problem,” I said. “I have blood in my pee.”
“No you don’t,” she said.
“I do,” I said. “I just went to the bathroom and …”
“My pee was red, too,” she said. “We had beets for dinner.”
Indeed, beets do turn urine red.
I went to bed, content.
