We just got back from the Museum of Jurassic Technology, where we learned all sorts of important facts and customs. For example:
- If a boy plays cat's cradle during childhood, when he goes fishing as an adult, his fingers will become entangled in the harpoon line and be severed.
- If a child holds a dying animal, his or her hands will tremble for the rest of her life.
- Undertakers should always carry black-headed pins with them to be stuck in fenceposts outside the cemetery following a funeral.
- Eating a dead mouse will help cure a child who stammers.
- Mirrors should be shrouded or turned to the wall during photographs.
- Sharing a bowl of milk with a dog will cure you of fevers.
- A 3 x 3 equals three meat patties and three slices of cheese at In and Out.
- If you look at all the green apple cards you win during a game of Apples to Apples, you will see characteristics of yourself emerge. For example, last night, I had Hopeless and Depressed. Jordan had Filthy, Nerdy, and Virtuous.
