My sister and I used to babysit for two girls that lived down the street from us. One night, after getting them out of the bath, I was struggling with the drain stopper, which I couldn’t unplug. My great efforts caused me to fall into the bath, completely submerging myself. From then on, the girls would always ask me if I would please fall in the tub again.

My sister and I would also sing the Duke of Earl song to these girls when we put them to bed. I don’t know how this started, but they loved it. They thought it was Duke of Girl.
