Open Letter to Little Boys Who Own Pocket Knives

To whom it may concern:

No matter how good of an idea it seems at the time, never, under any circumstances, use this:

pocket knife
When what your really need is one of these:


Or you could very well end up looking like this:

stitched-up finger

And while the injury itself may not be life-threatening, you may feel as if you will die of boredom during the six-hour wait at the emergency room.


All mothers of little boys who own pocket knives

Youngest son was trying to make a hole in a stick, and the knife collapsed back onto his finger. He's okay, but the poor kid turned white as a sheet right after it happened. I thought he was going to pass out, but once we covered it up, and he couldn't see it anymore, he was alright.
