Making Jan Laugh
One day in the 1980's, I found a 2-liter bottle the kids had filled with water, and I hid it in our bathroom. That night, after Jan had finished getting ready for bed and was writing in her journal, I went into the bathroom and closed the door. I took the pop bottle and proceeded to pour the contents, with varying speeds, into the toilet. It took quite a long time to empty the entire contents, and it made a lot of noise. Then I flushed the toilet, washed my hands, turned out the light and walked back into the bedroom and waited for Jan's response. Her face was all the reinforcement I needed! She tried, she really tried, not to ask, but her face gave it away.
