Playing with Scissors

For those of you who don’t know me really well, I am fidgety, can’t sit still for more than 2 seconds. If there is a small object near me I will pick it up and play with it. This can get me into trouble, as it did the other night.

I was working on the laptop at our dining room table. Scattered on the table were various crafting items that Ashley had been using for a Young Women’s project. Among the various objects was a pair of scissors. Absently I picked them up and began to open and shut them not really paying much attention to what I was doing. Then something felt different, it wasn’t just air that I was cutting but something a little more solid. It was one of those moments when you really don’t want to look down and see what happened.


Of course it wasn’t one of the old tablecloths, it was Ashley favorite red tablecloth. So please keep all sharp objects away from me, especially when I’m distracted.

You should keep sharp objects away from Ashley so she won't get you for cutting her poor tablecloth. Silly Brent.
