The Many Uses of Coffee Filters
On Saturday night, I had a funny dream involving Alison, of the Blue Blog, whom I have never met nor really talked to, except to post a comment or perhaps ask a question. She is pregnant in real life, but in my dream, she had the baby. We visited her family, she had a lovely large house, to help them pack and move. While we were there, Jerome had a huge blow out diaper, and when I tried to change him, I found that every diaper in the diaper bag was dirty as well, and that we had no extra clothes for him. So, I asked to borrow a diaper from them, and Alison told me that they cloth diapered the baby and her older boys weren't in diapers so she took me over to a supply type shelf and offered me a large coffee filter to put on him. We had to cut leg holes out. Evidently, it occurred to nobody that we might use a cloth diaper.
If that isn't funny enough, on the shelf above the coffee filters, there were size four diapers, and when I asked if I could use one of those, she said that they were far too big for him, and so she wouldn't let me have one. So, we had a naked baby in a coffee filter while I went to a store near their home to buy diapers and clothes.
I am going to send her the link to this post and hope she doesn't think I'm a crazed stalker.
