The Ice Cream Cure

As related here before, Susie received a Razor scooter from Grandpa for her birthday. I just noticed the caution label on the handle:

This product moves when being used.

What has this country come to, eh?


Rachel had her adenoids removed this morning. Wimp that I am, I made sure Larry took the morning off in order to escort her to her outpatient surgery. And being squeamish, I didn't go into a lot of details with Rachel ahead of time about what would happen. Her takeaway being that she was going to get a LOT of ice cream after the "procedure," she was excited about getting in the car with Daddy early this morning. She reminded me of my childhood dog jumping happily into the car for a "ride," only to be driven to the much-hated veterinarian for shots or whatever.

Things went fine, however. She's back home and snoozing on the couch, her tummy full of frozen confections. She's refusing to take the pain meds, though. As luck would have it, I'll be out this evening at Knit Night. How smart of me to schedule the surgery for a Wednesday, I must say...

  1. I use that same cure for myself whenever something happens. Not something bad, just something. Way to tough it out, Rachel.

  2. Apropos of nothing--I bought that same green purse at Target--I can't believe how many things it goes with!

  3. It's 10 pm and I'm physically restraining myself from driving to get icecream. I hope you're happy and btw I love your new Twitter widget!

  4. That's even better than the coffee labeled, "Caution: Contents may be hot!" Somewhere, you know someone had an accident and sued....

    Nothing a little ice cream can't fix.
    I'm looking on the boys' scooters for that warning. THink I can sue if their earlier models don't carry it?

    Mmmmm.... ice cream! I think my freezer is calling me...

    Yarn has been calling me lately, too, but I don't know how to knit. Yet.

  7. I had my tonsils and adenoids taken out as a child. Everything feels a heckuva lot better after surgery once you throw up.



  8. That ice cream looks fantastic!

  9. That is the most asinine warning label EVER.
