    The more you fear you will do it the more chances you will. Sorry Michael.

    Uh-oh. (Will the store from which Mike bought it accept refunds? Otherwise, time to use some super glue at home.)

    Much harder to fix crystal than ceramic.

    Why wasn’t it boxed up? I don’t know of any store that wouldn’t box up something that fragile.

    How did he manage to break it just by holding it?

    He broke the “angel,” now there’s the “devil” to pay!

    He’s a young boy. They break things just by looking at them.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Whenever we kids went into dad’s shop, we were told “Look, but don’t touch.” He’d also say, “You can’t break something by looking at it.” One day, I was looking at the corrugated board my mother used for stringing pearls. One of the services our business provided was the cleaning and restringing of quality bead necklaces – and Mom was an expert at this. I couldn’t help myself, I had to run my fingers down a row of pearls just to see what they felt like. The row of pearls rolled off the groove of the board onto the floor with a wild tinkling clatter. Dad spun around when he heard them fall and ran towards me. “Honest! … I was just LOOKING!” I told him. We both got down on the floor – desperate to find each and every one before Mom could see what had happened. Unfortunately, she returned before we finished picking up the pearls, and as her eyes fell on me, with his usual comic timing, Dad looked up at her and cried, “Honest … I was just LOOKING!”

    So many of my students use that rationale when claiming, “I heard what you said. I wasn’t talking!”

    the moral to this story is never let a bull roam in a glass shop or anywhere else
