Do You Want Fries with that No. 1?

Ok, so to most people this sign…….

…….signifies that a restroom is nearby. But, my daughter Lily will pass up one hundred of these claiming that she doesn’t have to potty. Until she sees one of these….
Are the Golden Arches the universal symbol for “potty” in Toddler-ese? Why is it that EVERYTIME we pass a McDonald’s Lily has to potty NOW? What is it about the McDonald’s sign that stimulates the bladder? Is it because it’s yellow? Or perhaps because it’s shaped like a butt? LOL! Why McDonald’s and not Burger King? I am determined to solve the mystery!

I think I am going to try to get in the Guiness Book of World Records for Most McDonald’s Bathrooms Visited. Is that a category? I think I am at least on #682.
Dang, now I want some fries. Where’s Lily when you need her?

  8. Christine says:

    Perhaps the very reason why Lily needs to go potty every time she sees the golden arches is because she wants some fries! LOL

  10. She is absolutely a bright little girl, she knows how to get what she wants LOL
