Perhaps one small boy used an entire roll of toilet paper to clean himself. More likely that boy used just enough to impede the flushing mechanism and then the rest of the boys kept using the facility as if there was nothing wrong.
No one, child or parent, wanting to be the bearer of bad news, mentioned it to anyone on staff.
It was a gloved hands, breath holding, scooping out sort of mess, ranking slightly below the stomach flu clean ups of the prior week.
It made me wonder about all the messes avoided, ignored, or left sit. And although we may hope that they will miraculously clean themselves up, the end result is more likely to be water and excrement all over the bathroom floor.
But you know, when it’s done, you’ll feel better.
