Reichen:  “Daddy, what’s that called?”

David:  “It’s called an electrical outlet and you should never put your finger in one.”

Reichen:  “Why?”

David:  “They are really dangerous.  If you put your finger in one, you get electrocuted and all your hair falls out.”


Reichen:  “Daddy?”

David:  “Yes, Reichen?”

Reichen:  “Is that how you lost all your hair – when you put your finger in a light socket?”
