This past summer, I stayed in MK until park closing and was so tired that I was having trouble focusing my eyes. I went into what I thought was a men's room and noticed that there were no urinals. My incredibly sleepy brain knew that something was wrong, but before I could put 2 and 2 together, a woman who was in there with her young daughter said to me very politely, "Excuse me, sir, but I think you went into the wrong rest room."
The daughter (who I'm guessing was maybe 5 years old) stage-whispered to her Mom in reply, "Mom, don't say that! Maybe he's a transsexual like Uncle Patty!"
And now for the heartwarming part:
The mother and I exploded in laughter -- what else was there to do? -- and then the mother explained that her brother had recently undergone MTF surgery. Her daughter understood that his name was Patty now rather than Patrick, but she couldn't bring herself to call him "Aunt Patty", so "Uncle Patty" was born.
I could tell that she was confused and upset because she thought that her mother and I had been laughing at her. I turned to the daughter and told her that I thought it was awesome that she had looked out for me and that she should tell her Uncle Patty what she had done, because it meant that she really understood how important Uncle Patty's surgery was to her. The daughter beamed, and Magical Moments were had all around.
