The Giant & The Toilet

Bea left notes in the most unexpected places. While sorting through her papers, I discover what appears to be an idea for a children’s story, scribbled on the bottom of a stationary box:

“Wouldn’t it be funny if a giant came along with this big a blade (yd.) and this long a screw, if he lowered the handle and unscrewed our toilet and carried it away – water and all. Mother came along in the car and found the giant and the toilet. Then, they’d take the giant and throw him in the swamp and bring the toilet home again.”

Now, Bea's grandfather was a plumber. In his display window sat a magnificent toilet. As a little girl, she tried to sit on this toilet and was whisked away by one of the relatives...
