The last week of October had been the week of Halloween. Trick or Treating before the 31st, parades, parties, library fuctions, school functions,and multiple times to dress up. On Halloween proper, the kids got to dress up for the 3rd or 4th time that week and wear their chosen garb to school for a day of festivities that will end in a sugar crash around 5, followed by sneaking Snickers by 6. Before I left for work, I talked to my daughter Carly about her cat costume and manuevring around her tail when using the rest room. My son Silas was also at the table eating breakfast.
Me: "Be aware of your cat tail when you are going to the bathroom."
Me: "Why do you think?"
Carly: "Um, I might lose it? It might break?"
Me: " No.........
Carly:"Oh, I know. I might pee on it. Giggle. Or poop on it. Giggle."
Me: "Yes,yes. You got it. Or you may dip it in the toilet, after you pee ....or poop. Even grosser."
Carly: "Yeah, I don't want to do that either."
10 seconds later
Silas: " Or, your tail might turn into a penis."
Or that. Thanks for sharing.
