A Wee Brush WIth Celebrity

The other night I was meeting my new improv troupe at the Cat & Fiddle for drinks. I head to the restroom to pee, and as I'm finishing up in comes the fella who played Gareth Keenan on The Office. The Office, for those who do not know, is a British sitcom that is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant things ever produced for television and living proof that my chosen medium doesn't need to be all intestine-eating reality shows and hootchie-makeover daytime TV. Needless to say, I am a fan. I didn't say anything because I have some issues talking to a guy when there is a penis in my hand or his.

So I return to my table, and I tell everybody that I just peed next to Gareth from The Office. Being comedy nerds one and all, they are understandably excited. An hour of drinks and conversation passes. I need to pee again. John says "Say hi to Gareth while you're in there"

I go back into the bathroom. Gareth is still there!

ME: Hey, weren't you peeing when I left an hour ago.
GARETH FROM THE OFFICE: (In heavy accent) Yeah, I guess we have the same cock.
ME: (Shocked) What???
GARETH FROM THE OFFICE: Clock.
ME: Oh, Clock! With an L!
GARETH FROM THE OFFICE: (Laughing) Yeah.
ME: Oh, that makes much more sense.
(Gareth From The Office goes to leave)
GARETH FROM THE OFFICE: I'll see you next time I pee!
ME: Is an hour good for you?
GARETH FROM THE OFFICE: It's a date.
