Makes you wonder

Sometimes you just have to shake your head and wonder at your children.
Wonder how their minds work.
Such as, why would you ever think about putting a children's toilet seat on your head and tug it down around your neck?
Boo did it today, resulting in heart palpitations from The Man and tears from boo and it was unceremoniously pried off his head.
Imagine the 911 call.

"What is your emergency?"
"My son has a toilet seat stuck around his neck."
"Pardon me?"
"You heard me. A toilet seat."
"Okay sir. Can you drive him to the hospital?"
"One, I don't think he'll fit in his car seat with this thing around his neck, and secondly, I think after an hour of pulling on it, I'm having a heart attack. Send two ambulances. Quick!"

Then he was sent to his room so The Man could recover, and once there, he took the hinges out of the closet door and it fell on him.

"What is your emergency?"
"It's me again? The toilet seat dad."
"Is your son still stuck?"
"Not in the toilet seat. He's now under a door."
"Under a door, sir?"
"Yes, ma'am."
"Is he hurt?"
"No, ma'am."
"Can you lift the door off of him?"
"Yes, I could. But I've decided to leave him under the door."
"Under the door? Why, sir?"
"Because he's bound and determined to kill himself today and I'd rather the ambulance be here before his next accident. How quickly will they be here? He'd like to get out now."

ROFL! There really is no way to Boo-proof a house, is there?
