Household Pests Are Not Something to Play Around With

Are you old enough to remember childhood games that were centered around household pests? Games like Ants in the Pants, Mouse Trap, and Cootie had children playing with plastic ants, plastic mice, and even plastic cooties. What's a cootie?

The Ghost Of Thanksgivings Past

I'll never forget it, the year Aunt Judy went ballistic on Thanksgiving Day. I don't think anyone who was there will ever forget it. We were all gathered around the table, loaded with all the usual Thanksgiving fare; giant golden turkey, steaming stuffing, mounds of mashed potatoes, squash, carrots, and every other vegetable we could squeeze on the table. We had just settled in and had started passing platters of food when, all of a sudden, Aunt Judy jumped up, knocked over her chair, and started smashing a giant turkey drumstick against the table screaming like a mad woman!
