We return to the Wink girls and their mom and the never-ending one-upmanship of toddler logic.

Briar: Mom, let me ask you a question.

Long pause.

Briar: Why can’t I have chocolate on the toilet?

I smile.

Briar: Is it because you are afraid I am going to throw it in the toilet?

I smile again, not really sure how to answer.

Briar: Yes! It is! You’re afraid I’ll throw it in the toilet.

She walks away so satisfied that once again, the point is awarded to Briar.
