  1. A king-size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house four inches deep.
  2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades they can ignite.
  3. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn't strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape.
  4. You should not throw baseballs up to the ceiling with the ceiling fan is on.
  5. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long ways.
  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. A 6-year-old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year-old man says they can only do it in the movies.
  9. The Austin, TX fire dept. has a remarkable response time!
  10. Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year-old.

  1. This was great, Ferree! Maintaining our sense of humor is very important as we do the hard work of grieving! Humor is healing. I know that first hand. I once wrote a blog entry titled, "Humor is Healing". Laughter is therapeutic and helps heal our hearts. I cringed and giggled as I pictured some of the things learned in this list. Thanks for the smiles!
