Laughing Lhursday*

You might think this is a bathroom.
It is not.
It is a mobile home.
What for you might look like a toilet seat
is the driver's seat,
and what for you might look like a red lid
actually is the detachable steering wheel.
Got it, so far?

These are Jasper and Jenny,
the owner's youngest children.
In the bottom left corner you see
the diaper changing table.
Almost familiar now?
Not to forget
the three dogs, the cat and the duck,
– their current names escaped me –
who accompany us to the Baltic Sea
recently several times a week,
thankfully guarding the potty
standing close to the cooking plate.
But that's a story for another day.
Happy World Book Day.

* [For first time visitors]:
Typo in the title?
It's just that I would not let a tiny T spoil an avantgardistic alliteration.


  1. Ach… if only there were some children who could join in your games eh? They would enjoy it :)

  2. Hope they invite me for tea when they arrive in Toronto. :)

    1. They have already driven down the very street where you live Claude, see If they had only gone more slowly we might have seen you on the way to coffee and pastry

    2. I can explain that. Turning into Yonge Street the hot iron fell on my lead foot. I was happy when in Vancouver heat and pain eased.

  3. As Andrew is showing, you were driving much too fast, Sean. Good that nothing happened to the children. Change your licence if you come back. The Toronto Cops are furious you escaped to Vancouver. They`ll catch you at Yonge and Eglinton corner the moment you re-appear on the scene.
