I am one who does not put much hope in today's young people. Seems they
are lazy and cant do anything other than push buttons on electronic
devices. A friend of mine reassured me that *sometimes*
they really do
use their brains. On Saturday evening, he spilled a can of beer on their
bed. He said his wife removed the bedding and used a cloth with water
and soap to clean it up on the mattress, but said it was very wet and
they would not be able to sleep in their bed. Around midnight, they were
talking about setting up their tent in the yard so they had a place to
sleep. He said they had been running a fan next to the bed for hours but
it was not drying. That's when their 9 year old daughter came in with a
hair dryer, and said "try this". Ten minutes later, they had a dry bed.
He said he was quite amazed that she thought of using that hair dryer,
which worked very well. He said "why didn't I think of that"?
Maybe there is hope for at least some of today's kids!!!
