“If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull.”~ W.C. Fields.
The midweek Word-prompt on Weekly Prompts, the Challenge Site I share with my partner GC is BAFFLING.
And baffled is what I became when he told me the context of his prompt.
Ey up lad, whatever next?
Why not simply push one’s pants down to one’s ankles and take aim, surely that would make things a whole lot easier? Ah well, mine is not to reason why and, as Gerry said, these little things are sent to try us, his words not mine!
Have I got your attention? In that case, you must read our Midweek Prompt forthwith where all will be relieved, oops, I meant revealed! When you’ve done, come back here, and I’ll finish off.
Why do I need to stand up? That was a question my own little boy asked, he could not understand why, after a few months of sitting on a potty, he had to up stand up to wee (pee) instead of sitting down like his sisters.
I think sitting down is a practical idea and if little boys continued to do that there would be far less of “Lift up the seat for goodness sake!” Or “Aim for the back of the bowl.”
The year two boys’ toilet floor was often wet, and I realised that the point and aim skill of some of the boys was somewhat inaccurate.
I placed a ping pong ball into the toilet bowl and instructed the boys to aim for it. Unfortunately, after a couple of days, I had to remove it because of its popularity; we’d never had so many little boys asking to go to the toilet, including boys from other classes who were suddenly very eager to use our facilities!
