At this week's writing group, I sent the young people to different corners of our writing space to think up sill warnings. You know the kind. When you see them, you want to shout, "Duh!" My new hair straightener came with the warning: Do not use while sleeping. Most peanut butter jars now have the warning: Contains nuts. I challenged the Dream Keepers to come up with their own warnings. Here are the best ones:
On a bathroom door: Warning: may contain smells. On the library: Warning: contains books. On jelly: Warning: May jiggle. On book: Warning: May contain challenging words. On boys: Warning: May giggle like a girl. On bicycle: Warning: Do not sleep while riding.
Now it is your turn. Can you add some silly warnings to our list?
