Those of you who know Shane are familiar with his rough and tumble, all boy, run in the face of danger childhood. One long ago Christmas, three-year-old Shane decided that he would take on electricity, literally. Impatient to get his way, needing to use the outlet, Shane decided to unplug the Christmas tree with his mouth. Yes. His Mouth. We all know what happens when you do that…you are flung across the room, and your father, on the phone with your mother simply says… “!*#@ Cindy, Shane just flew across the room.” I say “simply” because this is Shane after all, the kid who attempted to do anything and everything.
Fast forward thirty years and you have my son walking around with my hair straightener (yes, it was cool) with the plug in his mouth. Yes. His Mouth.
