Wummin have an inherent ability to go mental at the least wee thing.
I remember when our first wean was a baby and the wife was getting ready to go to the doctors. It was like a Steward's inquiry, do you know where the nappies are, do you know where the sudacream is, have you put everything in the steriliser, on and on it went. Anyway the wee yin started greeting and so ah thought, ah'll stick the dummy in it's mouth and the world will be at peace with itself. I took the dummy out the steriliser and stuck it under the cold tap as the missus walked in to the kitchen. You would have thought I had sacrificed the wean in tribute to pagan gods. She went nuts cos ah stuck the dummy under the cold tap. Now to me it was the most logical thing in the world as a wean wouldnae want to hiv the taste of sterilser on the dummy and surely this steriliser was a bleach of sorts that killed germs. She went completely mental, ranting and raving about knowing she should never leave a child in my company.
I still think it was a logical action that most men would undertake, we do laugh about now but what daft wee thing has set aff a full blown riot in your hoose and are men really stupid when it comes to looking after weans.
