Bath time

I’m currently reading Dracula for our book group and there was one particular phrase that really leapt off the page at me:

Chasing an errant swam of bees is nothing to following a naked lunatic

Substitute boy for lunatic and you have the nightly chase round the house prior to a dousing in the bath. The chase is two fold really, first off the initial capture leads to a disrobing, secondly there is the naked charge. This is usually done with a slight worry on my part about how clean his bottom is as he squats on my pillow cackling like, well, a lunatic.
