Momrat and Dadrat are moving

The trouble with moving is that Momrat has accumulated all kinds of crap. She's a compulsive tagsaler. Also a, well, a packrat.

"She won't let me get rid of your old crib," Dadrat tells me woefully. "Of course, it's actually probably illegal to sell or give the crib away, anyway, because it's not up to those new crib standards."

"What crib standards?" I ask.

"Oh, you know," he tells me. " 'Crib slats must be narrower than such-and-such a distance, or your baby will get its head stuck between the slats.' You know, that kind of thing. Of course, you had such a fat head that that was never a problem with you."

"Thanks, Dad."

Old cribs also used lead paint, which is known to cause dementia.

Perhaps the US could yet join the EU? That's the sort of regulation which keep me safe on a daily basis, after all... :-)

Yup, Dadrat. It's called revenge.

I forgot to mention we cleaned out my father in law's apartment and came home the proud owners of a vintage Veg-O-Matic.
