Guess where I'm peeing?

When you're trying to answer the call of nature at a restaurant, you shouldn't have to first answer a riddle about the names or symbols that the restaurant has stuck on the restroom doors.

Still, when looking for the ladies' room at a local watering hole last night, I was presented with the option of either "Wags" or "Ballers."

I went with "Wags," which the waitress assured me was short for "wives and girlfriends." But I've got a sneaking suspicion the label has more to do with "tail."

Can you guess where I was peeing? (Fair warning: We have not yet determined an appropriate prize for this contest.)
