Wordless Wednesday: Never Play With Knives

I've been talking a lot about back-to-school lately because, well, it's that time of year.  And unfortunately, this Wordless Wednesday post will be no exception (Sorry.).  But I promise to break up the monotony soon with a good public humiliation or poop story or something.

Remember my friend Kim who's stellar photography skills captured last week's misspelled Krystal sign?  Well, she's at it again, folks.  Forget the paparazzi!  I think we should start incorporating the word "Kimarazzi" into our vocabulary immediately.

Check out this photo that she snagged at our local Wally World this week.

  2. Crayons
  3. Tablet paper
  4. Glue
  5. Safety Scissors 
  6. Carving knife

Makes perfect sense to me.

What's especially ironic about this is how many times mothers have told their children, "Don't play with knives!"

In fact, that's one of the many life lessons that my mother taught me that I wish I'd paid a little more attention to.  The others involve not doing things to embarrass yourself in public, but I guess that goes without saying. 

Several years back, I was cooking dinner for a group of friends.  When it came time to chop the onion, I wanted to impress everyone with my amazing, lightning-quick, as-seen-on-TV chopping skills.  Next thing you know, I chopped a little piece of finger into the onions and then I passed out cold onto the hardwood floor.  Uhmmm, dinner is served?

Don't worry.  Aside from a moderate finger slice, the only thing that I injured was my pride.  

Needless to say, the new host of the dinner club became known as "Anybody but Amanda."  Ahem.  

Hey, do I know how to get out of cooking or do I know how to get out of cooking?  


Did all this talk about Walmart put you in the mood for some music?  It did?  Well, whaddaya know!  I just so happen to have the perfect thing.
