As if in response to yesterday's post about children's play, my son showed me a YouTube video that his friend had made a couple of weeks ago.
Now this is what I call fun:
Obviously it wouldn't have been such fun if someone had been blinded or cut by one of the shards of flying glass, but both boys observed the time-honoured health and safety recommendation: light the fuse and run like hell!
Some of my fondest childhood memories involved doing highly dangerous things with lighter fuel, Jif lemons and string.
My mother doesn't recall the period with quite the same nostagia.
