Pinball is so fun you’ll pee yourself - a short story
So we had some friends over last weekend (to hangout outside and social distance) and they have two boys, a six year old and a three year old. We had a heat advisory so at some point we brought the kids inside to cool off and turned on the pinball machines in the basement for them to play on (and showed them how to start games and set up a stool so the three year old could see better). After a while we heard a yell from the older brother, and a brief investigation found that the three year old had peed himself while playing pinball.
After a brief investigation, it turns out that he was “having so much fun” he didn’t want to “stop to pee” so he just went.
At first I tried the Billy Madison approach, letting him know that it happens to me all the time (GOO!!). However it was quickly apparent he was not embarrassed at all by this, it was pretty simple to him, he was mid game and had to go but was having fun, so the only logical option was to just go and keep playing.
Anyway, here is a pic of the pee stool. The kid later asked where his “pee shoes” were (they were drying out). No shame.
