A Little Surprise In My Sink

While getting ready for work yesterday I went to the bathroom so I could shave. I was in a hurry and didn't look down until the last minute. I don't think the picture is that good, but this is what I saw:


Yes, there was a decapitated, naked doll in my sink. This was disturbing on several levels. First there was the brutality of it all. What did this doll do to to hurt anyone? Was was it's crime? Also, it's a doll. I hate dolls! They are just so freaky and creepy. It always amazes me that little girls like to play with something so repulsive. Anyway, this doll must have done something to cross its master because here it was, headless in my sink. Ah, but what was the cause of death? Perhaps the decapitation happened afterwards. Maybe the doll was drowned first, then beheaded? Sure enough the doll's skin seemed faintly wet. What was most confusing was the cloth over the doll's neck. Did the attacker feel remorse after the deed was done and decide to offer the doll a little dignity by covering up her neck? I suppose since I don't know how to bring up this tragedy with my daughter ("Um, sweetie, did you drown and behead your doll for any reason in particular?") it shall remain forever a mystery. And why my sink? One thing's for sure, I'm going to be locking our door at night for awhile.

May Light increase!

OK, I LOL so hard, so did Michael's mom cause I just read it aloud to her. Rhys hated dolls when he was younger, was terrified of them. Good little man!

Try to think positive Mark; perhaps Trinity was attempting surgery and things simply didn't work out. You could have a potential doctor on your hands. Or a serial killer, whichever. :)

I'm scared she'll attempt "surgery" on me!

And here is the true window into the grossness that is, Life with Kids...
Trinity was having a lovely bath with her doll when she discovered that she needed to go to the toilet. She got out, did her business, wiped and got back in. The problem? She's not very good at wiping sometimes. When I went in to check on her there were floaties. Brown floaties. I got her out of the tub, put all her toys in the sink for sanitation, emptied the tub and cleaned it thoroughly. The doll seems to hang on to water and so the only way to clean it properly was to decapitate it. Not to worry, it was cleaned before Mark used the sink and the head has since been reattached.
My only joy in this is that I once again successful in freaking Mark out with a doll. Ahhhh.

Egad! The truth is worse then I had even imagined!

I'm with Mark, I liked the theory Trinity simply decapitated the thing better!

truth really IS stranger than fiction!

I like Mark's theorizing (sp?) better. The truth was stranger than fiction, but Mark's wonderings about what happened were way more funny... and less gross. :)
