Do you have sons?

Do you have sons?

I got this in my email. I thought it was kind of cute. I don’t believe the waterbed thing though. I did the math. The waterbed would have to be 13 feet deep. I believe that was an exaggeration. :)

And you also find out interesting things when you have sons, like ...

1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tie d to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5. You should not throw baseballs up! when the ceiling fan is on . When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9. A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says they can only do it in the movies.

10. Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4- year old Boy.

11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12. Super glue is forever.

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

14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15. VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

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

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

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

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

22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24. 80% of women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.

25. 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

And the break fluid thing. I tried that years ago with powdered chlorine for swimming pools. It will smoke and then spontaneously combust. It was pretty cool. :D

Good thing my friends and I didn't know about that in our youth. As it was, we are probably lucky none of us suffered severe burns given our fascination with and penchant for playing with gasoline and fire. And bees.
I had 2 boys and I don't believe that got into this much stuff, but they did do things and their 3 sisters were right there with them. If it could be nailed together, taken apart, investigated, jumped from, climbed to....... well, you get the idea.

That's what I did!!!... MOM?... Is that really you?
And me six !!!

My number two son got a brand new bicycle for his eighth birthday.
About half an hour after he had gone outside to 'ride it',
we found him on the front garden with a spanner and a pile of bike bits!
I joke not.
Im not sure if it ever went back together right.:D
