This is an actual question I asked. As The Empowered Mom, I couldn’t believe it. The words escaped my mouth as I realized the ridiculousness of:
A) Even asking the question, and
B) Expecting any sort of sane, reasonable, justifiable, logical answer.
I mean, legit – who’s the crazy one here? Clearly me.
Kite in toilet. Makes total sense.
Why kite in toilet. Crazy for expecting an answer.
And so there you have it. The Mom conundrum.
Why do we ask why?
There’s no why to why’s.
Why evolves into why not’s which morphs into ‘why not more Legos‘ and ‘why not try a pillow or one of the dogs or maybe the nerf gun’. Yeahhhhh, let’s not go down the why sinkhole…it ultimately leaves a plugged up situation filled with various and sundry objects with nowhere to go and lots of unanswered ‘why’s’.
So, there you have it.
Why Is There A Kite In The Toilet?
Because Why Not.
A lot of things can’t be flushed away and a lot can’t be explained. Often – there’s a lot of s*** – stuff, people, stuff that goes down the toilet. (Ha! You thought you got me there, huh?!) And a lot that doesn’t even make it into the toilet – memorialized by this hilarious example – and always in popular demand: Why Do Penises Have Such Bad Aim? Firsthand experience as a boy mom – boys and bathrooms, always interesting, often scary, often stinky and I often avoid them if at all possible!
What we don’t want to see disappear are these memories, these moments of time, these precious childhood ‘experiences’, the times we look back and laugh, the times we have to call the plumber STAT, the times that don’t make sense, the times that tick by… for the days are long, but the years are short.
Just think, someday you’ll flush a toilet and laugh wondering, “Why Is There A Kite In The Toilet”?
Enjoy these moments – just don’t let the toilet overflow – keep the plumber on call and keep the laughter flowing.
