"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Toilets and Dinosaurs

Look closely at this toilet seat .... What do you see? That's right, missing "feet"! Now just what happened to them? The other day, Troy said to me, "did you notice, They are breaking the new toilet seat?" Well, to tell ya the truth, I don't lift up the seat all that often, so I had to go take a look. and sure enough one of the now missing "feet" was broken badly. We were figuring it was Scott, because he is amused by the sound of a SLAMMING toilet seat and does that several times before flushing each and every time he uses the facilities. Later Scott went up to relieve himself and came back down pants around his ankles saying, "I can't go because the toilet is broken!" WHAT?! I race up the stairs to check things out. What I find is that now the broken "foot" is completely gone and so is another one! I convince him that it will be alright and he can still use the potty and to please be nice to the seat when he closes it.
A few days later, Scott tells me, "Emmy, flushed those down to the big mean dinosaur that lives down in there in the bottom." I reply, "There's a dinosaur in the drain?" Scott then tells me, "Yeah, but it's OK, cause I flushed {something I couldn't quite understand} down to eat him so it's OK, Mom!"
Oh, good I'm SO glad that you're feeding the dinosaurs that live in the drains! I wonder when the drains will barf up the "food" that you flushed?! :D

Ha ha! Only in the world of blogging can you tell about your funny toilet experiences to strangers on the internet all across the country!

Brilliant!

Thanks, by the way, for all of the really nice comments on my blog. You're so sweet.

DQ- I've been dying to write this down all last week but never found the time. It just made me laugh to know we have a dino in the drain! :)
Wendi, you are inspiring to me and I really enjoy reading what you write. Thank you!

Oh, NO! Does that mean there is a dinosaur in my toilet too? Is that why our seats are always crooked after a few months?

Scott-isms are the BEST by the way! Love that kid!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Cec- Yup, there's a dino in the toilet just waiting for you to leave so he can "fix" the seat! :)

Oh Man! I had to fish a music box out of the toilet last night (with my hand, toilet paper but no poop - yeah, I knew you'd wonder).

carrie & troy keiser said...

Super Cool- Oh the joys of children and toilets! :D

Toilet fishing is the worst... Very funny about the dino's...

carrie & troy keiser said...

Manic- Thanks, we all look so nice and sweet in pictures! :) Like I'd take a picture of a nasty toilet! :D I'll work on the needle thing!
Serious- I'm pretty sure no one likes to toilet fish! The other day Scott was helping put away the groceries. We get the flushable wises and I asked him to take them upstairs to the bathroom and put them on the counter. Well, he knew where they went and proceeded to open the package and put them in the holder. Well the lid was up and he dropped about half of them in the toilet and started to flush! They didn't go down and he was in tears! I had to fish all those wipes out and put them in the trash!

If your toilet has dinosaurs living down there, I hate to think what's habitating MY disgusting loo. Blech.

carrie & troy keiser said...

Crystal- :D you make me smile! Ask the kids, I bet they can tell you what lives in your loo!

Andrea said...

Not only are they feeding the dinosaurs, they're flushing down other predators, too! Oh, my!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Andrea- and just WHAT eats a dino, I'd like to know! :D

Shellie said...

Ha!! We have had so many toilet tales...I could probably write a small book about it. But I'll spare you. I LOVE the dino down the drain, but beware, have you lost any little plastic dino's lately? And whatever that thing is he flushed down to eat it, lets hope it's biodegradable too!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Shellie- ummmmmmmm good point! :)

Darla said...

They are just so precious! I could see my younger kids coming up with something like that...one of the older ones trying to scare them by saying something big and horrible lives down there and they would take it to the next level, feeding that big and horrible! :)
