No Questions Asked [Feb. 19th, 2012|08:54 pm]

When you live with a four year old (excuse me, almost-five-year-old), you learn that certain questions simply do not need to be asked.

Questions like "who put this green sock in the doorknob guard?" or even "WHY is this sock in the doorknob?".

You don't bother asking because the answers are "Timothy" and "I don't know."

So you learn to just skip straight to the ludicrous-sounding pronouncement "Timothy, please don't stuff your socks into the doorknob." In case you wondered what being a parent is like, it turns out a lot of it is saying sentences you never would've even dreamed of needing to say.

I had no idea there were such things as doorknob guards. Thusly I just assumed it WAS some kind of sock holder.

I was going to mock you for postulating such an odd product idea. Then I thought about all the products I've seen in the big box discount stores and on TV... and, yeah, they are that silly.

You may have a future inventing telemarketing products! (...sorry?)

I have often regretted not founding JML. The guy who did makes a fortune selling rebadged tat from China :D

The JML Magic Carpet...it's like a carpet..but...not.
