The Boy: Hey mom, guess what?
Me: what bud?
TB: Last night, when I was sneaking to the bathroom to go potty..
Me: What? Why were you sneaking to the bathroom? You can go anytime you want.
TB: Well, I was asleep and then I woke up and I had to sneak to the bathroom. Well, when I was sneaking to the bathroom I thought the garbage was the potty.
Me: You thought the garbage was the potty? What do you mean?
TB: I thought the garbage was the potty so I started peeing in the garbage, and then I remembered the garbage wasn't the potty, so I went the rest of the way in the toilet.
Me: ( fighting back a gag) Are you saying you peed in the garbage can?
Me: When was this, last night? Awhile ago?
TB: It was last night, no I think it was a couple days ago.
Me: Oh man, that is so gross! Why didn't you just tell me?
TB: Well, I just remembered!
On a side note, I was in the bathroom yesterday and thought it had a pretty pungent odor. This conversation explains so much.
I have yet to brave the walk to the bathroom to solidify the story....
