Where are all the decent parents hiding?
The 29-year-old man was shopping at a grocery store in Salem, Utah when a store clerk who was holding the baby discovered the individually-wrapped pills inside the baby's diaper. The man has a history of previous theft and drug possession charges.
Of course he did.
Though I had never considered hiding my (extensive) drug collection in my child's diaper, I have used their disposable diapers for a few things beyond just covering their bottoms. Some of those include:
- Mopping spills in the car: They are really absorbent and kind of smell good (when not covered in poo). If your toddler spills a sippy cup of juice, a diaper kills a roll of paper towels in terms of sopping ability.
- Doggie diarrhea: I will admit to using my child's diaper to stop my dog from having an accident when he was sick. He is a little dog. It worked. Nuff said.
- Rock stasher: When we go to the beach, sometimes my kids like to collect shells and rocks. Wrapped tightly, a diaper provides a nicely cushioned place to keep those shells and rocks dry.
- Puke catcher: A diaper is the best way to catch puke (or bloody noses) on the fly.
- Padded seating: I have lined up two or three diapers when we are at the park and used them to sit on the ground. Bonus: they were still clean enough to use later.
These are all acceptable used for diapers, but stashing drugs? That is not.
Do you use diapers for other things?
