Question: When are a toy double-decker bus, a 5-lb sack of potatoes and a baseball cap objects of hair-raising terror?
Answer: When they are seen through these eyes. I put the potatoes down on a ledge in the kitchen, and Zoe's rockets fired like Teddy Roosevelt on a big game hunt. One of my kids rolled a Hot-Wheels sized bus across the floor, and she bared her dinky teeth at it, growled like a Beanie Baby Grizzly and promptly ran away. And Lord help you if you walk in from outside with a baseball cap on your head, you burglarizin', good-for-nothin', treat stealin' hoodlum!
Finally, what do you call a Starbucks Frappuccino bottle filled with coffee beans? Well, when it's at my desk at work and I remove the lid, I call that "aroma therapy." Mmmmm! You should try it!
