Oh, that's what those are for? I thought it was a drinking fountain. Oops! Bummer.
I remember being at a hotel near Disneyworld when i was a kid, (Loooong time ago! Space Mountain was 6 months old at the time.) and when he came out of the bathroom he said "it's nice that they put a drinking fountain in the bathroom, but why did they put it so close to the toilet and so low to the floor?"
True story.

Plant something OUTRAGEOUS for them to find in an easy spot. They'll be so distracted and obsessed with their sneaky find that they'll stop snooping and focus on that one rediculious item. Meanwhile, the goodie stash will be safe n sound....;)
Here's a little story for ya-
My little brother went through my stuff that I had left at my folks' house for a couple of months long, long ago. (This story happened about 20 yrs ago) he found an enormous candle, complete with wick, depicting--ahem-- let's say the male, uhhhhh...well, let's just say manlyness for lack of a family friendly word at the moment. My best friend gave it to me on the hood of my car for my 18th bday a few years prior. So snoopy finds it. He freaked out. Showed it to my mom who showed it to my dad. They're all thinking it serves a personal purpose other than that of a candle. HALARIOUS!! It had a freaking wick and was made of wax!! I'm almost dying thinking about it!!ROFLOL anyway, he found that and didn't dig any deeper into the box...but if he had, he'd have found some other stuff that, well, I'm glad that didn't happen....lolol
Good luck lynn! Happy hiding. Just hide stuff next to the cleaning supplies. They'll never look there.

Get a pregnant friend to pee on a pregnancy test for you and hide it somewhere that your kids are the most likely to look. My GF did it to her mom once. AWESOME GF by the way!

Just leave some good Ole fashion drug paraphnalia out....mirror, straw....maybe a hunk mag or just something that'll shock her. I love the pregnancy test idea. Take the thrill of seeking out of it. Cat-n-mouse. You're smarter, and you've been doing this life thing longer, work it! If you plant outrageous stuff, if she stumbles upon something "else"she may not realize it cuz she'll be seeking the goods! Nothing like getting a hold of mom's super slinky undies that were sitting under the couch cushion slightly visable. "Oops, I was looking for those! Thanks for finding them." Just play it out is what I'd do with mine....mine quit snooping cuz I'd just embarrass the crap out of em with stuff on purpose. At some point they decided that that embarrassment was not worth it.

Never was into drugs, they won't believe that.

Missed a pair of fishnets, crap. Right out in the open.


Here's a bidet story for you. Years ago I was in a client's new house. Nice big bathroom with a bidet. I was always curious just what happens when you press the button, lever or whatever.

I lean over it and press the button and this gush of water erupts! My face is soaking wet and that stream of water shot up to the ceiling! It's also all over the floor. I go into panic mode because the GC and HO are at the bottom of the stairs chatting and the only thing in the bathroom to sop up all that water was toilet paper.:(

I was in there a while.

Marijuana is a drug? Since when?
And myself, I would be a lot more worried if my daughter stole some fishnets then my weed! Not that I have either one!
Or a daughter for that matter.

We should build a wall on the border with Canada to keep the cold air out.

Come on winter! I love the cold air!

If the Cubs win, I'm getting a tatoo of Harry Carey on my ...

You can't really call it a 'date' if the guy is 30,right?


So, my daughter up north had to call the fire department this week. A toddler that shall remain nameless decided to heat up a piece of pizza in the microwave in the basement. The house was filled with smoke.

What I found fascinating is, she had to go back in after getting everyone out,to literally drag the dog out by her collar. Annie Duke did not want to leave. Then when the fire department arrived,she escorted them to the basement and was glued to their sides the whole time they were in the house.

Do you think she thought someone was still in the house or she was going down with the ship? In any case, best dog ever.

Dogs are pretty interesting and loyal beasts. There's a wee little 3 legged Mexican pooch named 'Lucky' at the nursing home where my Mom lives. Couple of weeks ago they were doing a fire drill. Alarms going off, etc. Mom couldn't be bothered participating.

Lucky came into her room and barked at her continuously until one of the support workers came along and got Mom into her wheelchair. Mom gives Lucky treats every day so I guess he knows where his meal ticket comes from.
