How to lose an argument with a two-year-old

As part of the inevitable going-out ritual for anyone who has a two-year-old, I was trying to convince Sophie to sit on the potty before we left.
"Go to the potty. The restaurant won't have a potty."
Her response was devastating, relying as it did on brute fact to destroy the premise of my argument:
"They have toilets."
And now my job is done. The next sixteen years are just polishing.
