You read my mind! I had planned to post this. 😄
Very funny! I needed a good laugh. Thanks for sharing!
None of them are writers, are they?
I am a teacher now working from home. My wife, my four biological children, and my daughter in law are all doing college from home. My two adopted children and three grandchildren are all doing elementary school from home.
And this is supposed to take place in one house?
Someone is definitely going to have to work on the toilet!
Oh, my goodness! Definitely praying for you!
Is this a good time for an old poem? Arthur Guiterman. 1871–1943.
THE Antiseptic Baby and the Prophylactic Pup
Were playing in the garden when the Bunny gamboled up;
They looked upon the Creature with a loathing undisguised;—
It wasn't Disinfected and it wasn't Sterilized.
They said it was a Microbe and a Hotbed of Disease; 5
They steamed it in a vapor of a thousand-odd degrees;
They froze it in a freezer that was cold as Banished Hope
And washed it in permanganate with carbolated soap.
In sulphurated hydrogen they steeped its wiggly ears;
They trimmed its frisky whiskers with a pair of hard-boiled shears; 10
They donned their rubber mittens and they took it by the hand
And elected it a member of the Fumigated Band.
There's not a Micrococcus in the garden where they play;
They bathe in pure iodoform a dozen times a day;
And each imbibes his rations from a Hygienic Cup— 15
The Bunny and the Baby and the Prophylactic Pup.
I like it, Accord64 and Caroline!
