D – 20 (A kid being a kid)

Counting down the days until Beth’s thirteenth birthday with a few reposts from the archives.

Stop me if you have heard this story before:
A little kid goes potty and has a little too much fun with the toilet paper. Three towels, two liberal applications of disinfectant, one roll of paper products, and at least half a dozen months of life expectancy later… the bathroom floor was dry again.

Every child must learn what volume of solids a toilet can handle on their own. Unfortunately for the parents of the world, it’s a trial and error process.


    1. Thanks Richard! I’ve been looking for an excuse to repost some of my older entries for some time – after a few tweaks.

      The process of transferring the blog between five different platforms over the years (generic HTML, iBlog, Movable Type, hosted WordPress, and self hosted WordPress), and I’m not sure how many hosts (though at least a few different Macs at home), the formatting of some those posts have been stripped out somehow. Many are a single block of text without line breaks.

      At some point I figure I’ll go back and edit them. I’m tempted to edit more than a few for just formatting. You all have taught me a few things about writing (though I’m sure much hasn’t sunk in) and some of those old posts make me cringe.

Give the gift of words.
