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

    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.

    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 😉

      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.

    Cats throw up on a regular basis, usually due to hairballs. 🙂 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. 🙂

    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.
