|Mine wasn't zebra, it was shiny black mink.|
So my question tonight, as this random memory pops into my brain, is for my mother. Why did you let me wear that? Didn't you notice your daughter was garishly flitting about the neighborhood in a toilet lid cover? Ohhh, noo! You did notice and you thought it was funny! You stood at the sink washing dishes and looking out at the window with a big ol' smile on your face because that child is the strangest thing.
After all, that's probably what I would do if my daughter was wearing a "mink" toilet lid cover.
