(Sing the lyrics to tune “Found a Peanut”)
Found a Q-Tip, Found a Q-Tip
Found a Q-Tip just now.
Just now I found a Q-Tip
Found a Q-Tip just now.

And…..Stop.
You probably don’t want to sing this to your class….
Unless you’re teaching health class. (See links below)

Q-Tips on the mind today—we’re out.
Can you believe it? Don’t you keep a backup supply like I do?
There’s a rule around here: If you take something off the supply shelf, the add the item to the grocery list. Somehow we hit a glitch in the plan.

Ear wax is a problem around here-my son produces earwax by the ounces.
Sorry, don’t run away. That was ….gross. That’s the worst of my rant this morning.
I’m sure earwax production = brain cell production. (There has to be a plus side for earwax.)

My husband is truly distraught over the lack of cotton swabs, but I came to his rescue.
I offered him the stash from my make-up bag with a wee eye shadow stain on the tips.
He refused. What’s wrong with him?

Ear Safety Tips: “Dr. Brown also reminds parents that neither they nor their child should attempt to remove an object on their own. Cotton swabs, bobby pins or tweezers may seem like a harmless way to take out a foreign body, but they are not.
”Tissue paper, candy, English peas and beans may sound like items on a grocery list, but they also are just some of the things physicians at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas have removed from the ears and noses of some curious toddlers and preschoolers.” http://www.yourchildshealth.com/safety/ear.html

Tips for Swimmers’ Ear
“Do not poke anything into the ear canal in an effort to loosen wax and let water out. Many serious ear injuries occur when well-meaning parents stick something in children’s ears.” http://www.life123.com/parenting/young-children/water-safety/water-safety-tips-how-to-prevent-swimmers-ear.shtml

Another Funeral

publicdomainwikimedia

publicdomainwikimedia

Hello Everybody,
So good of you to visit again.

I’m thinking of another funeral. Yesterday red pens. Today fruit flies.
A wee bit warm and they swarm, even in the bathroom. Who wants to fly in a bathroom all day with the comings and goings, ahum   Not me.  If a lavortory won’t kill ’em, what will?  I”ve tried all I know to try.

First, I tried talk.  Communicate when you have an issue, right?

Come here, little fruit fly.  You see, I need you to take up residence somewhere else.”   They weren’t charmed. 

Then I fed the moms, the dads, and the abundant offspring.  

“Here. Here. Here’s some juice. Go ahead and take a dip. A deep dip. Dive bomb.”
Rice vinegar, apple-cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, red-wine vinegar, and wine available.  Drink.  Indulge.  Get light headed.  Die. 

They prefer the apple-cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar, but very few fatalities.   Pesky and persnickety creatures. 

My husband sucks the varmints with the vaccuum.
How do you exterminate the critters?

My son wants a pet.  Should reconsider an insect collection?

TEACHERS: Link to Biology Studies of Fruit Flies

Read this: 

“Many researchers have tried to create a mathematical model of how cells pack together to form tissue, but most models have many different complicated factors, and no model is universal.
Researchers at Northwestern University have now created a functional equation — using only two parameters — to show how cells pack together to create the eyes of Drosophila, better known as the fruit fly. They hope that the pared-down equation can be applied to different kinds of tissues, leading to advances in regenerative medicine.”

 

Okay all you fruit fly researchers, I’ll donate my flies to science.  Please send a fruit truck to pick ’em up.
