What would you do?

Instead of putting you to sleep with a rambling description of my feeeeeelings about the past week and day, which would likely feature helpings of self-pity, frustration, grief and pessimism with a few gobs of sunshine, I'm just going to give you guys a quiz. It only has one question. Here we go.

You go to use the loo, and find that someone has left a, er, present in the bowl. What do you do?

A. Shriek with disgust, then go ferret out the guilty party and deliver a lecture on showing respect to one's family members by REMEMBERING TO FLUSH THE TOILET FOR PETE'S SAKE! (Be sure to use the phrase, "How many times have I told you ..." Kids like that. And it just feels so good to say.)

B. Sigh, mutter, "Kids will be kids!" and flush the dang thing yourself.

C. Find your offspring and announce, with a completely straight face, "Kids! The only person who is allowed to leave brown packages at our house is the UPS man!"

(I think you know where I stand.)

I pick "B." For the simple reason that that delightful occurrence has worked its way so far down the grossness ladder that it doesn't even faze me anymore.

Uh, don't ask.

D. Stretch crime scene tape across the door and have them conduct a full investigation and file a report.
