Severing the can, hand.
Do you remember how your mom always used to tell you how dangerously sharp the lids are when you sever them from an aluminum can? Until last night, that story seemed like an "old mom tale" to me. At least now I know that they cut through real clean...deep...but clean. My experience last night got me to realize that you have to respect those lids and most especially those mom tales. But I guess the latter part of that not only means being careful with the lids on cans but perhaps no swimming for a half an hour after I eat, no swallowing gum because it will stay 7+ years inside my stomach, no taking candy from strangers (that means no more campus hand outs)...
What other mom tales I have missed here?
