The Gift Beyond Price
After reading Lab Munkay's latest bit of domestic hilarity (she is one FUNNY Munkay!), I remembered a not-so funny trick of my dad's.
First, get a small, trusting child. Induce this little cherub to peer up a coat sleeve by saying "You want to see stars in a coat sleeve?" As the child looks, and waits, you quickly pour a glass of water down the sleeve.
Actually, now that I think about it, this was probably what passed for entertainment in the depths of the depression. "Make your own fun". Munkay has the right idea. Any excuse to wrassle, dance or otherwise amuse your self and your kids when they are young is a gift beyond price.
