The other day, my four-year-old daughter abruptly stopped building her Lego princess skyscrapers to stare off into the distance, clearly lost in thought.
After a while, she turned to me and said, “You know… mummies would always have toilet paper on them.”
I laughed, which was not okay.
“That’s NOT funny!”
She’s fond of mummies, so maybe she found the mockery of their toilet-paper bodies unacceptable. Or maybe I was supposed to be wildly impressed by her deductive reasoning. Maybe anything bathroom-related is sacred, or she views not having toilet paper as a very serious issue that should never be taken lightly.
Either way, she was completely disgusted by my irreverence.
One should never mock how mummies could always conveniently wipe their butts.
