Meron Scissorhands

You'd think by now I'd know better. She's almost got me a few times - left a couple surface wounds - but hasn't drawn blood. That all changed today. With me singing some goofy song I made up and getting all up in her face - the excitement was too much for her to handle.

She came after the lips with her little scissorhands - apparently my singing was so good she wanted to chop my lips off and keep them for herself. But I like my lips.

So I used my cat-like quickness and managed to escape with only a small flesh wound. But dang - where was the warning on these things? Even with weekly trimmings it's still like walking into the boiler room to change a diaper on Freddy Krueger. Albeit a happy and loving Freddy Krueger - but Freddy Krueger nevertheless.

I've let it slide too many times - this time we had to file a police report.

While slaving in the yard, I have
been worrying about your injury since you are my ONLY son-in-law. I do have a couple of questions. Did you call the police and file the report first or did you first call 911 for medical assistance? And my second question, who took care of Meron while you were in the ambulance on the way to the hospital? And last but not least, do you need meals brought to you while you are on the mend?
Love you all, NC Granny

Your daughter is adorable! Thank you so much for your prayers. We will also be praying for your China adoption. I know that China takes a very long time. God Bless.
