What We Have Here is a Failure To Communicate…

P8052649 Pic at left – Raines in Lake Independance this summer.  He’s giving us his, “Seriously?” look.

Fast forward to last night, Mike is giving Raines a bath.  Despite Raines’ best efforts to communicate, it didn’t end well.  Here’s what Mike heard:

Raines:  Poop.  [then points, specifically, to the water]

Mike:  Poop?

Raines:  Nope.

[playing resumes]

Raines:  Poop.  [points again, specificially to the water]

Mike: Did you poop?

Raines:  Nope.

[playing resumes, Mike is puzzled.]

Raines:  Poop [points, for the third time, to the water]

Mike:  You pooped?

Raines:  Nope.

Mike:  Ok.

[playing resumes, Mike is completely baffled.  Then Mike sees bubbles rising from the water.  Followed by more bubbles.  Suddenly realizing, Mike lunges at Raines and pulls him out of the tub just as a stream of poop shoots out. ]

So – was Mike sufficiently warned?  You be the judge.  What Raines heard:

Raines:  Dad, I need to poop.  And unless you do something, I am planning to poop right  [points, specifically, to the water] here.

Mike:  You pooped?

Raines:  Not yet.

[playing resumes]

Raines:  But, like I mentioned, I do need to poop, and am planning to poop right  [points again, specificially to the water] here.

Mike: Did you poop?

Raines:  No, not yet.

[playing resumes]

Raines:  But Dad, the poop is coming.  Right  [points, for the third time, to the water] here, in the water.  Is that ok?

Mike:  You pooped?

Raines:  Like I said, not yet, but it is coming.  Ok?

Mike:  Ok.

And the rest, like they say, is history.
