Mom: N, why are you totally soaked, fully clothed, and wrapped in a towel?
N: Mom, I was playing with G and I stepped in mud.
Mom: So you soaked yourself to get clean?
N: No, mom! I went out back and washed my foot in the hose.
Mom: And you soaked yourself with the hose?
N: No! Mom, I just got grass all over my feet.
Mom: OK, where did the soaked and dripping in your clothes part come in?
N: Well, I had grass on my feet, so I came in and washed them in the tub. (Which solves the trail of grass mystery)
Mom: And what, you fell in?
N: (sheepishly) Yeah, well sorta. . .
