Hey! You in the stall. Smile!

Posted Jun 15 2009 6:30pm

Yes, another potty picture and another not so swift Robin moment.
Today it was Katy's turn to go to the dr.'s. She has a slight curvature of the spine. Nothing major but they are going to keep an eye on it until she is done growing and do an x-ray every 4 months to make sure there are no surpises.
Before we left we decided to visit the loo and since this was one we hadn't visited before we immortalized the moment in pixels.
Katy entered before me so I didn't actually see for sure which stall she had entered. I had assumed it was the first one and feeling a bit...I was going to say playful but in retrospect I believe the proper adjective would be stupid, I decided to play a prank on Katy.
There have been times in my life when I have done things that could be, and should be considered stupid. The electrifying finger incident #1 and the gory finger incidents numbers 1 and 2 being but a tiny percentage of stupid life time moments.
The stupid moment that I created this afternoon has no blood or bodily pain in it and it actually turned out okay, I think, so I'm not really sure it can be considered totally stupid but there is the incident of the mysterious flush. Maybe we'll just file it away as something not to repeat just to be on the safe side.
Anyway, I walked up to the first stall and hung my camera over the top and said, "Smile, Katy." Instead of hearing the expected, "Mom!" I heard, "What are you doing?" from a totally different stall. The second one.
Oh, dear.
"Katy, aren't you in the first stall?"
Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
"Is there anyone in the first stall?"
"I don't think so." She answered.
"Then why is the door closed?"
"Don't know."
"Well, let's hurry up, shall we?"
Which we did. I snapped the picture seen above and we quickly left. The whole time I kept expected a fully offended and annoyed female to come barreling out of the first stall and try to forcefully feed me my camera.
"Relax, mom. There's no one in that stall."
"Are you sure?"
"If there is she is squatting on the seat or something. I don't remember seeing any legs." She answered.
There really wasn't anything for me to worry about, it's not like I actually snapped a picture or anything. And surely, if there was someone in there she would have emerged by now. Right?
"Are we going to tell Dad?" Katy asked. "Because this is really funny."
"Um... No."
We left the bathroom and as the door swung shut behind us I will swear I heard a flush....
