The highlight of Em's class visit to the Exploratorium was a toilet affixed with a drinking fountain above the rim. Our guide challenged us to bend our rigid minds around the concept of drinking fresh water above a never-been-used toilet bowl. But some of the kids took to it so easily that I have to wonder if it was really their first time drinking out of one.
