The internet can be a dangerous place

Everyday is a surprise in the making.
The girls are both home for the summer. While they are both kinda looking for jobs….I’ve set up house chores for each day.  A load off my back I tell ya!
Anyhoo…I came home from work yesterday, walked into the mud room and I said: 
What is that smell? It smells like bazooka bubble gum!

They were both in the kitchen and they started laughing….
Lo: Really? It smells like bubble gum? {giggle giggle}
Lindsay: You mean it doesn’t smell like something burnt? {giggle giggle}
me: what did you guys do?

And as I made my way into the kitchen I spotted 4 empty bottles of wine, a roll of twine, nail polish remover and a lighter.
Every.mother’s.dream.
My first question: Did you pour out all that wine?

Then tried to ease my fears by telling me they drank it.
Kidding. They pulled them out of the recycle bin.
And then my confused nose smelled all the nail polish remover. Gag. 
Lo told me she was making gifts for her Dad and I…something she saw on Pinterest and Youtube.
It’s actually pretty cool if it wasn’t happening in my kitchen.
And…it didn’t work for her, maybe because our nail polish remover is ‘non acetone?”
But still. I am hiding all the lighters. And maybe ditching internet access too. 
I’ll never be able to ditch her creative juices. 
They warn us about prescription drugs, alcohol, texting and driving…where is the campaign against Pinterest?
Have a great and safe weekend ya’ll!
Happy Fathers day to everyone!

  1. Hi Suz, Thank Goodness I have never started looking at Pinterest… Many of my friends love it. I barely have time for blogging these days… Just can't add more to my plate.At least your girls TRIED… Their intentions were good… They were trying to make you and Coach a gift. That is a good thing –even if it didn't work… Hopefully, whatever their creative juices come up with next, it will WORK… ha ha Have a great weekend.Hugs,Betsy

  4. ha ha ha. \”did you pour out all that wine?\” too funny!I would trade your girls bottle cutting ventures any day to my boys home made cannister gun that shoots large potatoes (with incredible velocity I might add). I'm all for disconnecting the internet too except I would miss you!

  5. I love how creative your girls are! The cut in half wine bottles look really neat, too. Have they given up on it, or did you wind up getting the acetone nail polish remover? 🙂

  6. Life is never dull around your house, is it? Good luck cutting off internet access. My grandchildren would rather die than lose their connection to the internet.

  10. Funny story, but could have been a mess!Steve once researched on the internethow to tell if hay was ready for baling. Microwave it to check the moisture content!Unfortunately, this killed the microwave. Yep, the internet can be dangerous…
