Still laughing



I was very jolly yesterday, which I think was down to three main reasons. First, I felt soooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than on Sunday that I was just very happy. Second, with the clocks going forward at the weekend, the extra hour of daylight in the evening was great and I just soaked in the light on my way home. Third though was that yesterday morning I got an e-mail from one of my friends which left me laughing so much and through out the day, the story would just come to mind and I would start laughing again. If people saw me walking along the street they probably would have seen me grinning and thought I was slightly mad. Nothing new there then.

Anyway, my friend said that she had been staying with her cousin over the weekend and the cousin’s sister in law phoned to say that she’d had an unfortunate incident in the local DIY store. She had gone there with her three year old son and they were walking round together when a woman tapped her on the shoulder and said “is that your son?”. At which point the woman turned round to see her son sitting on one of the display toilets and doing rather a large poo…

I guess it’s difficult to explain to a three year old that despite it being a toilet, its lack of plumbing (and being in the middle of a shop) is not an ideal place to relieve yourself. The shop was not very impressed and gave her some rubber gloves and a brush and got her to clean it up. I’m sure that story will haunt that boy for the rest of his life!

I also heard yesterday that it seems the longest word that you can type just using the letters in the QWERTY line of a keyboard is… typewriter! I wonder if that was done deliberately.

By the way, I have no recollection of where the above picture came from, but it just makes me laugh.

Hey they look like the muppets! Great toilet story, reminds me of my niece who at three opened the fridge door took out a dozen eggs and smashed each one on the hard kitchen floor! Will save that story for her 18th methinks :)TFX

titration - I bet that boy was mortified, but I don't think his mum told him off. He was probably a bit confused that she had to clean the toilet though.

Yes I would really like to eat one of those cakes. If you work out how to make them do send one over.

TF - I think they are based on the muppets and the name of the right muppet ecapes me at the moment...

Just what children need - to be reminded of their childhood faux pas!

and that is THE cutest thing, though disgusting for the rest of us, a 3-yr-old could do!

Ah, you are the mad woman I passed walking along the street smiling to herself.

That is so funny. I bet the kids first girlfriend will get to hear that story.

(no subject) - I know, they're great. I found the picture ages ago and had to save it because I thought they were so great.

It's the kind of thing you can only get away with when you are three as well!

kahless - very probably. Be kind if you see me again!

I know, I'm sure he'll learn to hate that story...
