The Pee Chronicles

I have pee in every toilet in my house right now.  The seat is up, the pee is there. Easty blatantly stated that “somebody peed and didn’t flush the toliet! It wasn’t ME!’ I know it wasn’t you Easty, it was one of the two males residing in our house. Most likely the littlest one. Why are […]

Don’t […]
