#100WCGU – Wk116 – Prompt: …but where does the water go?… – 106 words – “Flush”

14 Jan

Michael was a typical curious four year old. He had the wide-eyed amazement we all had at seeing something new. He was studying the way a toilet flushes.

“Where does the water go?”

“Down the drain,” I replied.

…but where does the water go?

I explained how water travels down the drain through pipes to a treatment works where it’s cleaned before being released into the sea.

“Won’t the sea fill up?”

“No.”

“…then where does the water go?”

I explained the water cycle and how the water is used again and again.

His face screwed up at the thought, “We drink water from the toilet?”

My aplogies for being absent from the 100WCGU for the last three prompts. 🙂
