too stinky for you

This isn't meant as a complaint about TLM's bowel movements, nor have I any intention of bringing this up at her 21st. But today I had to go pick her up from daycare unexpectedly early. Because her poo was too smelly.

Before you write back commenting on the oversensitivity of the daycare teacher's noses, I should mention they went on to add that they suspected diarrhoea (omigod I spelled that out without needing spellcheck! What does that say about me?) and it's policy to ask parents to take their kids home in this case.

When they rang, I was in the middle of a meeting with the fundraising committee, on the other side of town; by the time I got there to pick up TLM she was looking as happy as ever. Though that may been due to the freshly-made popcorn being made freely available to all little hands.

I just thought I'd share it with you. Thanks.

I can’t believe they called you because she was too stinky. I think that is strange.

they actually called because they thought TLM had diarrhoea, and in case it turned out to be a tummy bug it was standard procedure to ask me to take her home. It's just that the teacher who called - English is her second language - unintentionally made it sound like I had to take TLM home because her poo was so smelly. Confused?
