Just wanted to point your attention to Anna’s latest post:

I saw this sign at Elder’s Bookstore, a happy little used and rare bookstore near Centennial Park here in Nashville, that said “Unattended children will be traded for donuts” and then a second one that said “Unattended children will be sold as slaves.” I thought the first one in particular was funny, but didn’t think much else of it until today.

I was at our local Home Depot, picking up a few things on the recommended cleaning list from Green Housekeeping when I became aware that there was a message playing over and over again over the speaker system in between songs and such. “Parents do not let your children climb on shelves. Keep an eye on your children as there are many hazardous items…” And so on and so forth.

And I thought, what parent in their right mind would let their child do any of the things that the message was warning against? I mean, I know kids will be kids and all and would definitely do everything on the message and then some if left to themselves, but the warning was to make sure that parents didn’t let their kids do any of it.
