    ¡Bueno! ™

    I bought a weighted blanket and the precautions specifically say I can't force anyone to use it and I shouldn't eat it.....

    What a gyp!

    Let's close our eyes, breathe deep, and imagine a world in which I can do what ever I want with my blanket...

    :D

    "Last night I dreamed I ate my pillow, chewed it to bits!"

    "Well, how are you feeling?"

    "Oh, a little down in the mouth."

    Last night I dreamed I ate my pillow. When I woke up, I couldn’t find my giant marshmallow anywhere. Oh wait... I think I got that wrong.

    I just got back from the dog park. At the entrance there was a sign that stated, among other things, acts of gross indecency will be prosecuted. Harley's a humper. And he can't read!

    I didn’t copy from That Bazooka Joe. My birthday is June 28th, 1961. Unless... I’m much more intelligent than I know and that simply can’t be...

    whatever else you do, don't remove the "DO NOT REMOVE UNDER PENALTY OF LAW!" tag

    There are ducks at a local park. There is a sign with a list of foods you shouldn't feed them like bread. At the bottom of the list is "fried food". Who would even think of feeding ducks fried food? Hey cute ducky, here is a nice piece of Colonel Sanders chicken for you. How about a nice egg roll.

    I used to own an early version of a weighted blanket.
    Back in the '70s I bought my mom a Hudson's Bay blanket because she complained she needed a heavier blanket to keep warm.
    One heavy blanket for Houston, but Hey!, I wasn't the one cold.
    Just out of curiosity I looked up the replacement price: $550
    Whew....

    My wife and I still crack up when reading about a local person being arrested for "stealing without consent".

    Now, lets don't forget about those disclaimers on medication. "may cause death".

    I have learned that weighted blankets might be helpful for youngsters that are on the spectrum. You sure don't want to force it on them.

    I recall having a Slinky and among it's precautions were:

    Don't play with in a car

    and

    Don't throw out a window

    Of course we took it in the car and threw it out the car window and only ill effect was we lost our Slinky.....but we were prepared for much worse!

    Those so-called "precautions" are just there for legal liability reasons, to protect the manufacturer from lawsuits. In reality, you can eat it or force someone to use it.....just do so at your own risk.

    Hate to be the buzzkill, but I had to teach students that term is derogatory to, well, gypsies, or those among us of Indo-Aryan (Roma) descent who travel and are accused of stealing and skipping out ("gypping" classes) ... I asked why not just use the word "skip"?

    In this case, why not use the word "buzzkill" or say "that stinks" ...

    Again, not trying to fan flames but educate, as that's my profession ...

    Peace.
