NEVER TRIM A MASK WHILE WEARING IT!

I would like to feature authors and books in the future on this day of the week (so if you're interested in being featured, email me at authorcheriemarks@gmail.com, but until then, I have something funny to share.

My son's birthday was recent, and we threw a lazertag party.  Besides the numerous eight and nine-year-olds running around the party and disappearing right when we needed them, we had a great time.

One of the highlights was the safety tag that came with my son's WWE Rey Mysterio mask (yes, it is a real mask, and my son thinks it's the greatest gift ever).  Here is a list of the warnings on the safety tag:

  • Mask Care and Safety
    • Use sharp scissors to increase the size of eye holes for better visibility if necessary.  Make certain that you are able to see clearly when wearing the mask.  NEVER TRIM A MASK WHILE WEARING IT. (The all caps is theirs, not mine.)
  • Do not wear While
    • Driving
    • Smoking
    • Sleeping
    • Swimming
  • Be careful when crossing streets or walking upstairs.
Sadly, someone had to have done some, if not all, of these for them to become necessary warnings.  And, in case you were wondering, these masks do come in adult sizes.

If you like what you see on my blog, please "follow" me.

Happy writing!

that is funny! I always love reading those warnings and wondering what dumbasses did those things that someone had to make a warning label for it!
