Don't Try This At Home

posted in Past Goodness on Jan 17, 2004

Is it just me or do you get the urge, when you see a label that says “Keep out of reach of children,” to give that item to the first kid under seven years old you see? Fire extinguisher? See what kind of games Johnny can think up. Furniture polish? It can be used as Jack Daniels when Billy pretends to be a hobo. Any over the counter medicine? Tell the boy he’ll be able to go anywhere we wants to go; all within the confines of the house of course. Scissors? There’s a relay race outside isn’t there? Plastic sack? Give it to Timmy with a handfull of rubber bands and tell him he’s a scuba diver. Everyone can have fun if we use our imaginations.
