Godzilla: "Dad told me 'boys are supposed to be dirty' and I memorized it!"
You don't get any more stereotypical than this. It would seem that I told Godzilla recently that boys get dirty. Then I left him at home with his sister and mom one hot afternoon to play with his squirt gun, and the result should have been expected.
The little scoundrel took the hose and made a mud puddle, then proceeded to slather himself in all the mud he could muster. When it was time to come in, this is the sight that greeted my wife at the front door!
What do you do with this?
Hose it off, naturally.
This is what childhood is about, right? Exploring your world and discovering new things. The dirt will wash off, the clothes will come clean, but the memory of coating oneself in mud will last.
Besides, I've seen grownups pay good money for a mud bath. Can anyone say Spa Day?
