On This Day In History…

…let it be written that I, the Mother of Chaos, did go forth unto mine bathroom with the current-day’s newspaper in hand and actually managed to read one (1) whole entire editorial without being interrupted by even one (1) Denizen wondering what I was doing for all that long while (consisting of roughly five whole minutes), let alone the usual minimum of two (2) (4) (6) (8) children per minute asking the same question five times each.

Aside: It is a sad, sad commentary on your life when it is so exciting that you got to read a whole entire quarter-page article without being interrupted that you immediately rush to blog about it, and then honestly can’t remember what it was about…BUT! Undaunted and thus emboldened!

I shall now…


…the unheard of feat…!


(waaaaaait for iiiiiiiiit)


(That’s right, I’m an envelope-pusher, yo…)

(And all kidding aside, that is the first time I have been be, you know, alone in the bathroom in, like, six months…)

EXcellent! Just a small concern: what were the Denizens up to while you were "engaged"??

And the angels did sing, and the clouds opened to reveal the glories of the heavens. Amen

(Query: My verification word was "denitis" and I was wondering if you could tell me the definition of this condition?)

I had the same question as Joan. It doesn't take long for them to figure out that if Mom's in there, they have time to get into something forbidden.
