Mysteries of parenting

Superman and I were sitting on the couch, talking.


Superman, looking around: Did Elaine just flush the toilet?

Me: Yup.

Superman: Do we know why?

Me: Nope.

Val comes running: Mommy! Daddy! I think Elaine just flushed a toy but I can't tell because it's all flushed already.

I arrive on scene and find Elaine methodically washing her hands.

Me: Elaine did you flush the toilet?

Elaine, expressionless: Yup.

Me: Did you go potty?

Elaine, stoically: Nope.

The world may never know. Hopefully. Because if we did know, that would mean the toilet would have problems. And we don't want that.


  1. So... you're not going to ask her what it was? o_OIt's like watching an episode of "LOST"! They never asked each other the blatantly relevant questions... (Except this is way funnier that LOST ever was.)

  2. I'm dying to know what it was now. Incidentally, I hope your not missing your keys.
