If you were planning on getting me a tow truck for my birthday, this is the kind I want

Because I would totally put Jesus up there on the cross up there on the back if I had this tow truck. But not the real Jesus. 'Cause that wouldn't be very nice.

My younger gal noticed this on a necklace at Kohl's:
I'm not exactly sure how my generation made it through so many dangers without all the warnings. It would be nice if they were more specific though. I mean, is it a choking hazard because a child younger than fourteen might eat one of the beads, or do they think a thirteen year old might strangle herself?

It's so sad when people involve their dogs in sports and then the dogs get fouled. I'm glad they're going to protect the dogs in New Hampshire from this horrible fate:Older Gal really will be responding to comments on the last post. It's just that she's intimidated. So now she's just exactly like The Bloggess! Which means she's world famous all over Houston and possibly other places.

Except The Bloggess is intimidated by comments on her OWN blog, and Older Gal is intimidated by comments on her guest post. But aside from that, they're like twins. Practically.

I've now revised this post about 714 times. So my apologies to anyone who read it in its previous form(s).

Ahahahaha! And here I thought I was the only one to revise posts endlessly after hitting "publish"...

I can't believe that warning on the necklace. I mean really, some things are just taken too far!

Now you see I saw the 'intended for children' and didn't see the 'not' so I was all asking myself...why...what problem would adults have with this necklace? Is it too small? Has it some hidden adult danger? Is it simply too purple plastic to be acceptable on anyone over 14????

Oh and that tow truck is totally the one for me. Imagine what you could do with it in the Passion Procession before Easter? Beats those poncy bloody flower laden floats hands down.

Maureen - Oh no, I can be quite compulsive. :-)

Arizaphale - Great idea!!! I wonder if we can put tow trucks on our wish list for amazon.com?

ALF said...

I need to know more about dog fouling.

People in the Sun said...

If I had a dollar for every piece of jewelry I ate when I was thirteen...

SJ said...

... you would still have no money, PitS?

Oh OK I will drop the ferrari idea then.

Christine said...

Maybe the necklace warning is like the one moms used to give. "You can't wear that, it is for a more mature lady."

(and yes, whenever my mom said that it meant "You look like a whore, Christine, go change."

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Alf - I'm not so good at sports, so I'm not exactly sure how you foul a dog. But I think afterward you throw flags at them.

People - Oh so it's so it's YOU causing us all this trouble! How were they, btw? I'm in need of new ideas of what to make for dinner.

SJ - He can get a ferrari from eating necklace beads?

That's funny Christine!

Bruce said...

What the hell is "Dog Fouling"???

Kristine said...

I'm also confused about the dog fouling.

A Free Man said...

Maybe it just means that it isn't appropriate attire for a 13 year old.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Bruce and Kristine - Well, I don't know much about sports, so I had to look fouling up on Wikipedia. But it turns out that dog fouling is when you have illegal personal contact with your dog. And then if you have excessive or unjustified contact with your dog, then that's an unsportsmanlike foul. *shrug shrug* If you know what all that means, let me know.

AFM - I think that must be it. Because, as Christine put it, it would make a THIRTEEN year old look like a whore. But it would fine for a fourteen year old. :-)
