Have You Ever Had A "Helen" Moment?

I don't know how many of you ever saw the movie, "Same Time, Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn but there's a part in the movie that Alan Alda describes that's hysterical. He tells about the evening that he and his wife (who is about 8 months pregnant) go to a dinner party with a client. At the end of the evening, his wife mistakenly walks into the closet instead of out the front door. Instead of coming right out after she realizes her mistake, she stays in there. Her husband opens the door and she bursts out laughing. When she walks into the foyer, she laughs so hard that she begins to pee all over herself and the client's Persian rug. Of course, Alan Alda's character is mortified by this but that doesn't deter her in the least. A couple of months ago, I had a bad cough and ran to the bathroom when I began to pee on myself. Unfortunately, I was coughing so hard I had to throw up but what was funny is that I still couldn't quit coughing and started to pee all over myself because I had to choose between throwing up in the sink or sitting on the toilet and throwing up on the floor. I decided I could clean up the pee easier. It was pretty funny, though, because I started thinking about this movie. Now, I have a question for you. Have you ever had a "Helen" moment?
