Subject: Out of the mouths of babes
I have to share something funny/sad. Last summer, my daughter (then 7)
received a new bicycle. As she was looking it over, she found a label on the
pole that the seat attaches to and read it out loud. It said something to the
effect of, "Always wear a safety helmet and read your user guide before
After she read that, she snorted, "User guide?!? Who reads the user guide?"
