Expect the unexpected.  You can't, because if you're expecting the unexpected it becomes expected so really it's expect the expected! (From Terry Pratchett).

"Going to turn my bike round" which meant visiting the toilet for some reason, anyone who could say why I'd be interested to hear it.

According  Definition-of.com
Quote
Originated in pub culture. After a few pints a drinker would go out to turn his bike around in readiness for an easy departure. This became a euphemism for visiting the toilet to urinate.
