Scene from the shower

As he exited the shower tonight, I asked Thomas if he had washed well.

I did. I washed my arms, my feet, my everything that I’m supposed to wash.”

I praised him for his work and then he confidently added, “I didn’t wash my face, though, because, well…you know why.”

I don’t actually know why so I took the bait and asked.

“Well, because it’s not the right month for that, mom.”

Curiosity got the better of me and I asked him in what months he did think he was supposed to wash his face.

“Well, usually just in January and it’s good that’s over!”

Love it! Maybe the annual face washing is a new trick for glowing skin.

That face looks squeaky clean to me.

Oh, Thomas! I'm laughing so hard that I can barely type. Wouldn't you just LOVE to be inside his brain to trace the deductive steps that produced this conclusion?

Sounds right to me, having grown up on a farm with no running water! Water is drying, you know, so he'll have nice healthy skin! ;)

It is quite a rare talent successfully shower and avoid face washing. I'm impressed.
