From the other side of the bed I heard another moan, "Were you brushing your teeth?" "No," I muttered incoherently, "I got a drink of tea from the kitchen." "You shouldn't drink tea before you go to bed, it'll make you go to the bathroom." I soon fell asleep but was awakened with a very urgent need to go to the bathroom. In a panic I stumbled out of bed, could not find my slippers, my bathrobe was nowhere to be found but I had to go to the bathroom. The next thing I remember the alarm clock was ringing and it was seven o'clock in the morning. I still do not know if I ever went to the bathroom but now I know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. That morning in my devotions, I read from the Psalms. "I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread" (Psalm 37:25 KJV). I am thinking this 60-something is going to require some fancy footwork.
