An email I got from a friend that made me snort a few times… (she got it from a relative in Australia, hence the Melbourne)

The Wonder of Sons

For those of you who were fortunate to have daughters ONLY, be glad….
be very, very glad….

And you also find out very interesting things when you have sons, like….

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house
4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with
roller blades, they can ignite.

3.) A 3-year old boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not
strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a
Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread
paint on all four walls of a 20×20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When
using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before
you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by
a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh”, it’s already
too late.

8.) Brake fluid mixed with WhiteKing makes smoke, and lots of it.

9.) A 6-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says they can only do it in the movies.

10.) Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4- year
old boy.

11.) ‘Play Dough’ and ‘microwave’ should not be used in the same sentence.

12.) Super Glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jelly you put in a swimming pool you still
can’t walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jelly.

15.) VCR’s do not eject Peanut Butter & Jam sandwiches even though
TV commercials show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odour is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not
like ovens.

20.) The fire department in East Melbourne has a 3-minute response time.

21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with
or without kids.

25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the WhiteKing and brake

  1. I love this! LOL! I want to say that I’ve seen some of these somwhere before but I’m not sure.
    You and I must be the only ones who are blogging today…

  2. #26 – Quiet is bad.  Very VERY bad!!  If you can’t hear them, better run quick before it’s too late!

  3. Hi, I was just wondering around xanga’s home birth blogrings.  Just wanting to get to know some people who have had home births as we’re thinking about trying it next time.
    I’ve read this before, it’s so true!  We have two boys, they’re 3 and 4, but it’s amazing how much of this I find to be so true!
