(Mac) You know those air hoses at the gas station that we use to
put air in our bike tires? Do you know what happens if you stick one up your butt?
(Will) You blow up?
(Mac) No stupid, you die.
(Me) Who told you this and why would anyone stick one up their
butt? And stop calling your brother stupid.
(Mac) Dad told me all about it and he even watched a video.
Later in the evening when my husband got home:
(Me) Why in the hell would you tell Mac that if you stick an air
hose up your butt you will die?
(TJ) I didn’t! I was trying to explain the dangers of compressed
air. I told her about a safety video that I once watched where some guys were goofing around and they sprayed some compressed air in the direction of another guy’s backside, the air went through his skin and he died. I was explaining the dangers of spraying the air on your skin.
(Me) Well okay then but I think I’m going to Google it anyway
just to see if you are right about the dangers.
Not only was he right about the danger, I also found TWO pages of
examples where air hoses were stuck up butts for one reason or another. Two pages of stories about people actually sticking an air hose up their butt or accidently falling on an air hose and getting them shoved up their butts. I think survival of the fittest should apply here. Some nights all I can do is shake my head.
That’s it for today; I have to work on my garden. Have a great day!
