Ikea in Brussels

Last week I went with Nicole to Ikea to help her to choose a new kitchen. It was just noon when we arrived so we went to the restroom (or toilets) first before we had lunch.

Following this sign, we saw 4 soldiers standing there who had the same emergency as we had.

When I saw them, I asked myself how long will it take to get rid of all these weapons and God knows what else in their trousers to protect the family jewels ! And where can they put all this stuff ? The cabins are not that big, I just have enough space for my purse ! And in the men's restrooms there are certainly not cabins for baby changing.

After having done our call of nature, and coming out, the soldiers had disappeared inside, but one came out, sighing and I had to smile, poor guy, he also smiled I think he understood what I thought,  that they had some difficulties.

Anyway nobody blow us up we had never been so safe in a toilet !

Nicole only shook her head and wondered what thoughts I have !

That is why soldiers have to be young I guess. Older people would never maki it in time. Goodness.

LOL Nicole wondering at your thoughts. I imagine they did have a hard time in there, but glad you had great protection in the meantime!

As my mother would say; they should have 'gone' before they left home.
