Paper boy

Usually the first thing Logan does when he wakes up in the morning is go outside to get the newspaper. The paper is delivered at the end of the driveway out by the road so it's a little walk rather than just grabbing it off the porch or something. He's been playing paper boy for a month or two and I've always wondered why it takes him so long to get the paper. I figured he was probably goofing around, looking at bugs or kicking rocks. Every time I've been concerned enough by how long he's taking and actually looked out the door, he's been on his way back to the house. This morning I watched the process...

Logan immediately walked all the way out to the big tree just before the end of the driveway and stopped. He then dropped his pants and peed for a really long time, pulled up his pants and proceeded to get the paper and bring it inside.

Huh. No wonder getting the paper is such an urgent matter! Fortunately, we live on a very quiet dead end street. There are only a few houses past ours so it's pretty unlikely a neighbor would pass while he's doing his business. I think I'll choose to ignore it and let the "problem" cure itself when it gets cold in a few months.
