Last night I was really trying to be so quiet.
My husband went to sleep early (for him) because he had to get up at 2 a.m. to get to a job by 3 a.m. I wasn't ready to go to sleep so I sat in bed and looked at a wonderful picture book (all kinds of neat storage space ideas) until I had to go to the bathroom that one last time before crawling into bed.
Of course, trying to be quiet, I just pushed the bathroom door closed but didn't latch it. I had just finished, stood up, and barely turned to flush when the kitten charged through the door going full speed. She took a flying leap and hit the broken toilet seat. The seat went flying - ricocheting off the bathtub and landing upside down on the floor. The kitten landed in the toilet.
Have you ever heard a flying toilet seat hit a bathtub? Have you ever heard a toilet seat hit the floor? Have you ever heard a cat when it lands in water unexpectedly? Have you ever heard a woman laughing hysterically? (The door probably banged, and I probably screeched, too.)
Yes, I had to give the kitten, the floor, and myself a bath (and change pj's).
Yes, it woke my husband out of a deep sleep.
