There are certain universal truths in parenting.
• If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Pound Puppy underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a twenty by twenty foot room.
• If you use a waterbed as home plate while wearing baseball shoes it does not leak—it explodes. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 square foot house four inches deep.
• The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy. It will, however, make cats dizzy.
• Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
