My girl got a sewing machine and the whole family was sitting around it working on getting it ready for the maiden sew. I got everyone’s attention and said in a commanding voice “Ok let me just go over some safety rules that you MUST follow,” Everyone rolled their eyes at each other because I am always the wet blanket. “Absolutely! No! Sewing Seeds of Destruction! No sewing ANY dissent under any circumstances and NO dirty so-and sewing!”
They didn’t even laugh with relief that I wasn’t killing their fun. Hmmph.
