Crocodile Rock

C threw up at school yesterday and had to miss camp read a lot which very well may have been the greatest disappointment of his life thus far. Even H, who was also sick, was nice to him as he wallowed in the misery of life's unfairness for the rest of the afternoon. Or maybe they were both just too sick to fight.
S accidentally flushed a sock down the toilet. He was pretty upset about it actually.
"Where my sock go?" he fretted.
I was initially horrified that it would instantly clog up our pipes but then remembered how, if urban legend is to be believed, city folks flush alligators down their toilets on a regular basis. Surely a baby alligator is bigger than a single orange-striped Baby Gap sock - ages 24 to 36 months.

song: Crocodile Rock • artist: Elton John

Wait, are you really listening to that? If so, I am in awe of your ability to actually pair relevant music with real life instead of just thinking about it (which is where I usually stop!)

No, not listening. I merely have a useless treasure trove of song titles rattling about in my otherwise empty head along with the notion that there's a song for every situation no matter how ridiculous.
