Time Out


A Note to Builders:
This is certainly not the first time you've heard from me. Though, in the past, my comments have been of the complaining nature. Mainly my endless lamenting concerning carpet in bathrooms. While I will not let you off the hook for all the bathrooms, in all the houses, in which you have laid carpet, I do believe in giving credit where credit is due.

Namely, there is a crazy little nook in our house. It serves no purpose. Obviously it is ill-advised, wasted space of the utmost degree. But, can't change it, so I've found a way to use it. It is the time-out corner extraordinaire.

It is hidden from plain sight. That is to say that when a busted child is sitting there, the other tormenting child has to go out of his way to get at said punished. It is not within reach of electrical outlets, heating and air-conditioning intake registers, shelves -- glass or otherwise, or a toilet, nor anything that someone may be able to flush down a toilet. In a word, it's adequate.

Well, anyway, that's it for now. But please note, I'm just tabling my heated debate on the actual appropriate measurements of a laundry room. If you've never done a load of laundry in your life, by all means design one. I'm just saying.

Thanks,
Head Laundress and Time Out Giver-Outer

But, I can't imagine that sweet face could do anything requiring a time out?
