Hey, I believe that too.
Very true. I hope your friend's child doesn't grow up with an undue fear of cooking! (For the record, I remember being swatted once with a wooden spoon, and I'm okay in the kitchen!)
I guess we all grow up with different ideas of what's acceptable.
I forgot to mention another way I'm coming across as a smarty on the message boards: I know how to make words bold or in italics. Heh. I'm a goober.
"In all our woods there is not a tree so hard to kill as the buckeye. The deepest girdling does not deaden it, and even after it is cut down and worked up into the side of a cabin it will send out young branches, denoting to all the world that Buckeyes are not easily conquered, and could with difficulty be destroyed." - Daniel Drake, 1833
