Five Lies I Tell My Son

1. Pushing all the buttons on the washing machine all the time will give it a nervous breakdown. And then it'll come after you and gobble you up.

2. Toothpaste is poisonous, except when it's on the toothbrush. So stop trying to eat the toothpaste.

3. The sprinklers are sleeping. If you wake up the sprinklers by jumping on them, they'll leap out of the ground and spit venom in your face.

4. Dragonflies are baby aeroplanes.

5. The vacuum cleaner is alive. And hungry. But also blind and stupid. So it's easy to escape.
