I am certainly glad my friend had a good laugh about this.
How do you explain to your guest why there is a toad in the toilet? I mean really, what could you possibly come up with to explain that? Especially after they have just used the toilet, flushed and were about to close the lid and see this – MR. TOAD!
Scorpion! That was the first thing that popped into my mind when she called out and asked me to come and take a look at something. She says, “just come and take a look.” Next thing that popped into my mind is “cat!” Aw man, what has Kivuli done now! “No really, Just look.” So, I am back to the”scorpion ” thought. “Just come in here and look” as she pointed to the toilet bowl. I lean over a bit, and see nothing. So I ask her “what are you talking about?” …” Look again!”
OH MY, there is Mr. Toad cooling off the in the toilet bowl. Now, before you ask, YES the toilet is indoors. In the house. In the bathroom. etc. etc.
“Wait! I need to get a picture of this” I say. She comes back with “I already did that!”
I explain to her that we have a Toad Commune just outside that very bathroom under the a/c slab. Its just that they really aren’t allowed in the house. She laughs. By the way, I am cracking up too.
This also leads to a “rat-in-the-toilet” story from when we lived in Palm Springs. Yes, RAT! But I will save that story for another time.
We fish Mr. Toad out of the toilet bowl and through the local transportation (me) we take him out and deliver him the outer limits of the Toad Commune.
Several times that day we laughed about Mr. Toad. He does have some fun adventures it seems. I just can’t quite work out how he got in the toilet.
