Kids SAY the Darndest Things

This weekend, as I entered a Mens' Room at Kohl's, a little boy brushed past me to meet his mother outside (outside the door. Not "outside" outside).

She asked him if he has washed his hands.

In a voice loud enough to be heard from the closed door, I heard, "But, I didn't touch it!"

I wonder if the guy in the stall thought it was strange to hear someone giggling at the urinal?

Hmm...Urine Al....sounds like the aftereffect of putting that balm on my feet?


  1. I left out the part where the mom says, "Well, you don't have to announce it to the whole store!"
    To which the kid said, "Well, I DIDN'T touch it!"
    My wife (I was still inside so I couldn't see) said he then held up his hands and said, "See?"

  2. Excellent. I had an argument with my headmaster at infant school when he spotted my not washing my hands after peeing. My arguement that I didn't need to because I hadn't had a poo fell of deaf ears.

  3. Reminds me of a joke.
    Sailor and Marine go into a bathroom to pee.
    After they're done, the Marine notices the sailor walking out without washing.
    He indignantly said, "In the Marines, we're taught to wash our hands after urinating."
    The sailor turns around and answers, "In the Navy, we're taught not to piss on our hands."

  4. So funny! And the sun thing was too. I needed that Al. Thanks.

  5. OMG, that is so cute. Little boys grow up to be big boys.

  6. I hope you didn't get pussyfoot from that urine Al. Sorry, darlin', but you opened the (bathroom) door to some more punning.

  7. I was pointing out the sun poster to one of my coworkers this morning. We both had a good laugh over it. I would never let one of the kids know that I found it funny (I really don't want hurt feelings). But, like the "Kohl's kid," I usually find that real-life things are the funniest.
