Taking It to the Hallways

A toddler's guide to activism, by Puppy:
  1. Seize the moment. Let's say--hypothetically, of course--you are offered the opportunity to unroll an entire roll of toilet paper into the toilet. By all means, do so. One never knows when such joy will present itself again.

  2. Adapt to the situation. Upon receiving word that the aforementioned toilet-filling is not considered a game and will not be tolerated, change the focus of the discussion. This isn't about toilet paper anymore. No, it's about liberty! And freedom of expression! Insist that you had a moral obligation to fill the toilet with paper. Make your point loudly and repeatedly. Suggested talking points: "But I said YES!" and "I did it!" Don't back down. You're changing the world, dude.

  3. Escalate when necessary. At this point your parent may be pretending to ignore you. Don't fall for it. You know she's totally going to blog this later. Spare no effort in your attempts to challenge the oppressive regime. Your younger siblings are counting on you, so fight the good fight. Take your protest to the next level. Throw yourself on the ground, cry, attempt to remove your diaper...

  4. ...and promptly fall asleep.

If you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh-oh!" it's already too late. :o)

At least you'll have the picture to prove Puppy's move on the liberation front!

How did you keep yourself from choking with laughter?

I like the last part! I wish I could learn to fall asleep like that at the end of a rough day!
