Laws Concerning Food and Drink; Household Principles;Lamentations of the Father.

It’s from 1997, but time- and priceless.

    Why this conjured to mind “The Very Special Forces Sippy Cup” as a mental image, I am not sure. But it did. So I’m dropping the engram here, because I don’t want to carry it around in my head – I live in there, and some of that stuff’s fragile.

    I think this deserves to be expanded and published into laws for new parents!

    Of the remnants upon thy back, they shall not be spilt upon the floor where thy standeth. Nor shall they be flung into corners unbeknownst to all. Yea, I proclaim from ahigh, all that thee shall wear shall be gently returned to the proper place. So it is written, so it shall be done.
