Parenting has been compared to every conceivable activity and career. Anything one could dream up. You’re a prisoner. You’re law enforcement. You’re a slave. You’re a cook. You’re a doctor. You’re a teacher.
But have you ever considered that perhaps the most apt description could be that of a space explorer on the vessel that discovered Ridley Scott’s ALIEN?
There’s a creature whose sole mission is find and attack you. Sound familiar?
Sure, you’re just trying to take a pee, but these little buggers are gonna find you. No matter what. They will scratch, then bang on the door. They will test every structural and emotional weakness until they get to you. You’re just trying to get a little “me” or “wee” time.
And why do they “NEED YOU” you ask?
Are you on the toilet? Then go here.
Whenever you can catch a break, that is.
How about this story as an example of failure to peepee launch?
