The Toy That Lives In My Bathroom

by Alli

It never fails.  In the middle of the night, when everyone’s fast asleep, the urge to make a quick trip to the bathroom hits me like a ton of bricks and I’m wide awake.  Maybe I should do more Kegels.

I creep out of bed, bleary-eyed and try not to wake all the way up because once my mind is awake, there’s no more sleep for the weary. With one eye closed and the other half-open, I stumble into the darkened bathroom because I can make this trip in my sleep.

Forgettable Bathroom Trips

And then it happens.  The toy that lives in my bathroom tries to attack me from below.  You know the one I’m talking about – that little plastic building block with all the ridges that hurts like Hades when it’s stepped on.  In the past, I’ve had to clamp my hand over my mouth to stifle the screams.  I’ve almost cursed, but then remembered I stopped doing that years ago.  Even still, a few choice words explode in my brain.

The Toy That Lives in my Bathroom

Why does that thing live in my bathroom?  I mean, who plays with building blocks in the bathroom?  I’ve finally come to the conclusion that it’s alive and every time I pick that thing up and put it away, it returns.  And sometimes it brings its little plastic friends along.

A Trip to the Bathroom

I mean, what have I ever done to that thing?  Why does it hate me and attack me every chance it gets? I’ve had other scrapes and bruises throughout the years. Nothing can compare to the damage done by that tiny little plastic block.

In the past, I’ve hopped back to my bed (have you ever tried hopping in the dark?) with pain shooting through my foot and determined to rid the house, once and for all, of those nasty little blocks that are out to get me.

I finally smartened up and learned to avoid that dreadful toy, so now my bathroom routine is completely forgettable thanks to the strong softness of Quilted Northern®.  I stumble back to bed and the next morning I barely remember the quick middle-of-the-night dash to the bathroom.
