What Kids Taught Me

Super glue is forever.

No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.

Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

VCR’s do not eject “PB&J” sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

The fire department in Austin, Texas has a 5-minute response time.

The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

It will, however, make cats dizzy.

Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

    The one about NOT wanting to know what that odor is, is very true. There have been things that even once I found the source I still didn't know what they were

      I so remember Ann. I so remember. πŸ™‚

    Kids are really silly people but adults can be just as stupid or even worse when they're drunk.
    Have a cool ( I doubt that you'll have cool ) Saturday Sandee. See ya my friend.

      This is true Paul. Drunk adults are far worse.

      We're going to have another heatwave starting Wednesday. Oh joy. πŸ™‚

    Love the one about the jello is hysterical. Big picture of a swimming pool full of jello. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:49 am

      Oh the jello has been done so many times. So many times. πŸ™‚

    and I am sure there are more for them to teach us! Have a wonderful weekend all three of you!

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:49 am

      I'm sure you're right Kathe. Just when we think we've seen it all they come up with something new. πŸ™‚

  6. July 25, 2015 at 5:48 am

    Haha! I liked these especially pools and Jell-o and garbage bags

    Have an odourlesstastic day Sandee :-h

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:50 am

      My son tried the garbage bag one. Among other things. πŸ™‚

  7. July 25, 2015 at 6:25 am

    Great list. My kids also don't think much of garbage bags as parachutes. On the other hand, they did discover that when they're full, they make outstanding trampolines.

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:50 am

      They don't work very well at all do they. πŸ™‚

    My husband said he had a friend once who accidentally put her cat in the dryer…they figured it out in time and rushed the cat to the vet. I think it was just a little banged up and really dehydrated, but okay.

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:50 am

      Poor cat. I'm glad it survived. πŸ™‚

  9. July 25, 2015 at 6:49 am

    No you really, really do not want to know what that odor is…. It's better that way πŸ™‚

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:51 am

      No, I really don't want to know what the odor is. πŸ™‚

  10. July 25, 2015 at 7:12 am

    When cats share your home, never use fingers to pick up small, dark objects. True dat.

    Have a fab weekend. Lotsa scritches to LB. Big hugs to you and Zane, honey…

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:51 am

      Amen to that honey. Amen to that. πŸ™‚

    Only two people have ever walked on water—one really did it while the other, Barack Obama did it only in the minds of simpletons who will believe anything!

    • July 25, 2015 at 8:51 am

      I'm not an Obama fan and never have been. He could have united this country and he did the opposite. πŸ™

    • July 25, 2015 at 10:00 am

      In our rush to elect a black, we elected the wrong one. We could make the same mistake for the first female.

    • July 25, 2015 at 10:03 am

      Hillary is much more corrupt than Bill. You are probably right on the money here. I've watched so many things Hillary has done both during Bill's residency and beyond. πŸ™‚

    • July 25, 2015 at 11:06 am

      Kismet is spot on with that comment. A candidate's race or gender is a pi$$poor reason to vote them into office.

    • July 25, 2015 at 11:23 am

      You're right cube. Now it's going to play out again with another poor pick. Hillary because she's a woman. She was second place with the democrats in 2007. Good grief people. πŸ™

    • July 26, 2015 at 2:00 pm

      I hope she continues to tank in the polls. If the white house sanctioned criminal investigation does indeed begin, it might propel her numbers into the toilet.

    This set of teachings comes awfully close to my house and that of our parents. As I kid, I jumped off my parents' roof just to see if I could roll into the fall like they do in the movies. Using a garbage bag would've been silly πŸ˜‰

    • July 25, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Yes, it would have been silly. I did the jump off the roof too. It didn't work out well. I didn't break anything, but I did mess up and ankle pretty badly. Didn't try that again. πŸ™‚

    • July 26, 2015 at 1:58 pm

      Don't worry about any recurrence. One jump off the roof ended my fascination with jumping off the roof. I didn't hurt myself and I gained the admiration of my friends who were afraid to jump. That was good enough for me.

  13. July 25, 2015 at 11:17 am

    OMG.. the plastic toys in the oven is classic! I melted more nerf pellets back in the day!

    • July 25, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Our poor mothers put up with so much. My son wasn't half as bad as I was. πŸ™‚

  14. July 25, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    Despite all the mess is there anyone who doesn't like children and their pranks?
    Have a great day!

    • July 25, 2015 at 3:38 pm

      I love children and their antics. A. Lot. πŸ™‚

  15. July 25, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    Cats throw up on a regular basis, usually due to hairballs. πŸ™‚ Oh, and in response to your kind comment on my today's blog post, I love to walk, usually nature walks, and I enjoy my long walks. I am hoping my sleep issues is just a phase that will pass. Thank you so much for all you share, Sandee, and I hope your weekend is great. πŸ™‚

    • July 25, 2015 at 3:39 pm

      I so remember the cat throw up. Yes because of hairballs. You're most welcome. I've had my share of trying to sleep too. Not anymore, but I did in the past. πŸ™‚

  16. July 25, 2015 at 2:35 pm

    You also can't fly like Mary Poppins with an umbrella by jumping off the roof, even if you stand with your feet in the right position. A friend of mine found that out when she was about 7.

    • July 25, 2015 at 3:39 pm

      Oh goodness. That would have been frightful. πŸ™‚

  17. July 25, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    LOL – especially those last few. Poor kitty.

    • July 26, 2015 at 6:48 am

      Yep, poor kitty indeed Rhonda. πŸ™‚

  18. July 27, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    But kids are so lovely!!! specially when they are quiet and sleeping πŸ™‚ hahaha!!!

    • July 28, 2015 at 8:41 am

      They are indeed, but at times they are most challenging. πŸ™‚

  19. July 27, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    You need to use much bigger garbage bags.

    • July 28, 2015 at 8:42 am

      So that's the secret. Who knew. πŸ™‚
