Dinosaurs in the Potty!

          When my nephew Andy was 2 ½ years old and recently potty-trained, he came running into the living room one morning shouting, Mommy! Mommy! Dinosaurs in the potty!"

          "What?!" my sister Carol replied.

          "Dinosaurs, Mommy!  Dinosaurs in the potty!"

          The little guy was obviously distressed by the, um,
in the potty, so Carol figured she'd better go check on it.

          You know how it is with really young kids.  Multisyllabic words that begin with the same sound all seem pretty much alike.

          Dinosaurs, diarrhea--whatever.
