Wedding Reception

Free! May Contain Black Widow

This evening, after reading this "Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures, my wife mentioned that our daughter had recently said, "Look, I can reach this!", referring to the work bench in the garage or something on it ... while standing right. beside. the vacuum cleaner that kind of might have a black widow living in its wheel well.

I said, "You know. We've never used that vacuum cleaner. We're never going to use that vacuum cleaner. What it is is clutter. We should get rid of it."

She said, "Not to vacuum up black widows or something?"

I said, "Uh. No."

She said, "Maybe we should put it out at the side of the street with a sign on it that says 'Free!'"

I said, "Free! May Contain Black Widow?!?"
