When we posted this Wordless Wednesday photo on 3/8/17
we had no idea the funny comments we'd get.
Since Mom had been very long winded on during her Tuesday post on 3/7/17, we
just posted the photo. However, your comments reminded mom of another
Tale from the past.
When my human sis was about six Uncle G (Dad's brother) was visiting.
At the time he lived in Syracuse, NY so needless to say they were all excited to have him visiting.
It was summer time they were all sitting on the patio. As mom told the story, sis was
on her swing set. She was having a grand time showing Uncle G all the
tricks she could do.
As all little kids often do, at the last minute sis realized she had to scurry to her 'litter box'. Mom told me sis ran in the patio door lickety split to the hall bathroom. There was an open window in there. Sis did not turn on any lights. All of a sudden there was SciFi scream 😠 from the bath room that probably broke the supersonic sound barrier. Sis was hollering for mom to come help her.
See Uncle G had just been in there, Not only had he left the toilet lid up he left the seat up.
Sis was only 6 so she was small. She had fallen into the bowl
cold water and all of the toilet. She was hanging on for dear life to the edges. Alternately bellowing for mom and scolding Uncle G
for leaving the lid and seat up. Mom was pretty sure all the neighbors heard it too. Thankfully sis did not drown. But boy did she give Uncle G a stern talking too about proper toilet etiquette when you live with girls. Uncle G was a confirmed bachelor until his mid 50's.
Hopefully Uncle G remembered this etiquette lesson when he met and married Aunt K.
The end of this tale from the toilet bowl.
