Kids These Days

At a recent public event that my family attended, there were some sponsors with booths. My son grabbed a freebie bag from a sponsor. This particular sponsor happened to be a food manufacturer whose main products are sold in jars – the standard glass jars vacuum sealed with metal lids. The bag contained a few small jars of various stuff, some promotional literature, and a jar gripper helper pad. The gripper pad is just a round piece of rubber that you place on the jar lid to help you maintain a better grip on the lid when trying to open stubborn lids.

When my son was going through the contents of the bag, we didn’t know what was in it. We just heard him announcing what he got: “I got some jars!”, “I got some papers!”, and “I got a mouse pad!” We tried to explain what it really was, but he was convinced that it was a mouse pad instead of a jar gripper. He has complained that it is too small for the mouse, so he still uses the existing mouse pads instead of his new one.

“He said, ‘Bring me a new jar, and put salt in it.’ So they brought {it} to him.”

    Hey, have you seen some of the tiny mice they make for laptops? It could be a mousepad for those mice!
