To Him A Label Is Babel

| Related | June 1, 2013

(My father is known for failing constantly to read the labels on things. In the past, he has eaten doggie breath strips, and has wiped himself with toilet cleaning wipes covered in bleach. I am making fun of him for this as he finishes some housework.)

Me: “You know, you should try actually reading things before you just go using them all willy-nilly.”

(My father marches to the sink to wash his hands.)

Dad: “You don’t know what you’re talking about. A few mistakes don’t mean anything. I’m careful! How do you know I just wasn’t having a couple of bad days? …hey, this lava soap smells funny…”

Me: “That’s because you’re washing your hands with hair removal cream.”
