This last weekend Nadine and I had to fly to Sulphur Springs, Texas to officiate a wedding of a close friend of mine. We flew into Dallas Love Field and rented a car to drive the 1 1/2 hour trip to Sulphur Springs. We had some time to grab some lunch in their quaint downtown area. The grassy square had a World War II Memorial for those fallen from that generation. It was wonderful to see the forefathers of Sulphur Springs honoring those who had given their lives so that we could be free. That wasn’t the weird thing.
What was weird involved two mirror encased boxes on the sides of the grassy square. They were about 6′ X 6′ X 8′ feet high. Below is a picture of the boxes.
The box could be opened up as Nadine opened the door. As the box was opened, the weirdness became evident. It was an outdoor toilet that could be used with a sink for washing your hand afterward. Once the door was closed, you could see everyone walking around the grassy square, but they couldn’t see you. Really. A glass outhouse.
It is one of the most weird things that I have ever seen. Needless to say, neither Nadine nor I would use the outhouse because of the thought that someone outside could see in. But they couldn’t.
There are just some things on our journey through life that you don’t want to participate in. Just Saying.
