Tribulations of a Technically Gifted Child
S~This was too funny not to share with all of you. Yesterday while the family was at Lowe's, Jamie informed us that he needed to go potty. So him and I ventured in there and he rushed right over to one of the urinals, after he finished his business we went over to wash his hands. The sink was low enough that Jamie could navigate this chore all by himself. However he did need help with the drying. Not because the paper towel dispenser was too high, or that it was out of paper towels. No Jamie had a hard time because this was a paper towel dispenser from the "Stoneage". He went over and repeatedly waved his hand in front of it and...Nothing. So he did it again...Nothing. He looked at me with disbelief, this has always worked in the past was there some magic word? Some hidden trick? I just looked at my gifted son and said "Just pull", Yes this was a non automatic paper towel dispenser! What a marvelous world we live in!
