See the top screws onto the bottom, and then the mask fits onto the tube. Now I know for those of you who have not ever seen one of these, you may be on my daughters defense. But please note that in the same place she found these parts, was a mask already put together. (Its the one on the left).
So as usual, we are not really sure how she completed the treatment, how the meds didn't spill out, how Talan is not on a steroid high right now.
Again, I am sure that many of you are still stumped, not yet rolling off your chairs at the dumbness of our smart child? Perhaps a little more background. I must warn you that these are real life incidents.
a. A phone call I received at work, a couple years ago. "Mom, I know I'm only supposed to call if there is an emergency. But it kind of is an emergency. The computer will not turn on..." huge sighs from me " Lyndsey, is it plugged in?- yes, OK, have you tried pushing the button to turn the monitor on?" "What button?" Seriously - you are 14 and you don't know the monitor also has an on off switch???
b. Family game night, some trivia game. The question asked to Lyndsey was " in baseball, when the ball is hit into outfield and not caught, the batter runs all four bases, what is the term?" Her response - "a quarter, no no, A good job" Seriously - you have been playing softball since you were 8 - and you don't know what makes a home run??????
c. And the winner is -------
Last summer Justin was at basketball camp during the mornings. For some reason she decided to be nice to him and get the lawn mowed early while it was still cool. Being the independent person she is, she didn't call us and ask directions. Ultimately she was not strong enough to pull the cord for the engine to start. However, she found another machine in the garage and figured that would work just as well, had no trouble starting it. In fact she was well on her way when the UPS driver stopped her, asked her what she was doing - she said "mowing". (and here's the kicker) He chuckled and said, "Sweetie, that is not a mower, it's a snow blower!" We are very amused and sure that so were all of this other compadres back at the warehouse. The kicker to this story is that in her truly lawyer fashion, she thinks all blame for this incident lies with the manufacturer of the snow blower, because apparently they should have put in bold letters on the side - CAUTION NOT TO MOW GRASS WITH. I believe she is still writing the complaint.
Lyndsey, we love you. You are a continual source of comedy for our household and we don't know what we would do without you. But REALLY - just take a moment, engage brain, follow through :)
