This may have been our most expensive s3xcapade, so far!
Years ago when Cassie was a baby and the boys were about 3 & 6, we moved.
It was a big move. I ended up in the new town with the kids weeks before William. We were holed up in a cheap hotel doing fun things like school registration and vehicle registration and trying not to lose my mind living with three kids in a hotel room, when William surprised me with a weekend visit. Surprise!
There was barely enough room for me and the kids in that room. And when they were sleeping, there was no way we could….you know.
So, off to the bathroom (one of our favorite places anyway). But we didn’t pick the shower or go for sink s3x. No, we made the mistake of reclining on the throne together.
All was well in the world, until William felt a pinch on his butt. Next there was a hard plastic snap . When we were able to inspect the surroundings we found the toilet seat was not as strong as our home model.
The lid was broken completely off.
Despite the butt pinch and the plastic snap , we had no complaints. The kids didn’t wake up. We were together for a weekend. Everything was perfect.
When we checked out, we admitted the damage. “The lid to the toilet seat came off. We’re responsible. We need to pay for it.”
This required the attention of a manager. He had to consult his list. We weren’t worried. It was a cheap-o toilet seat. It couldn’t cost much, right?
Manager: I’ll add the $65.00 to your bill
Us: ?! What ?!
William: That is not a $65.00 toilet seat. I could get a toilet seat down the road at home-fix-it-store.
Manager: They’re special, to fit on our toilets. You can only get them through one supplier.
I felt myself get tense, clenched my jaws, try to think of something to say ...
William said, “No problem” to the manager, like we go around paying damages to hotel rooms all the time. And he nudged me and said, “It was worth it.”
Managing Emotions - I'm an emotional person. This has been a given. Know me, know I'm emotional. And it's interesting what sort of control we're supposed to have over our emot...
