Fountains Of Youth


Mrs. Joe and I took Peanut & The Champ to the mall this weekend to get them each a new pair of shoes. We first had dinner at The 99 Restaurant. I had a burger, Mrs. Joe got a fish platter and The Champ ordered a grilled cheese. Peanut ate nothing but the free popcorn.

Where was this popcorn last Wednesday?

After dinner, The Champ needed to go to the bathroom. As we finished up our business at the urinals, The Champ stepped back and said,

“Look dad, they’re magic” as it began to flush.

I showed him that it wasn’t magic, just the motion sensor triggered by him standing there. We washed our hands and as we were leaving, he set each urinal off and walked out the door.

Whoever said those sensors help conserve water doesn’t have a 6 year old son.

There were urinals in the Girl's Dorm at college. We wanted to put plants in them to camouflage them. That's when we learned the urinals were on a timer and our plan was thrown out.

Urinals in the girl’s dorm?!

I think we are actually an environmental hazard when we go to our local YMCA with all the auto flushing. (And the flushing is so loud that it frightens my kids and then we have the added yelling.)

Oy.

Whenever I'm trying to help Clare out on a motion-sensored flusher, we usually set it off 3 or 4 times without even trying. I can't believe they save water either.
