Borrowed this from elsewhere because I though it charming:
"Had my four year old grandson over on Sunday and as usual spent a lot of time with him and on this occasion, playing with his Lego. "Grandad" he says, "the hats keep falling off the people", the people being the Lego figures. "Will you super glue them on"? (He knows that I am a dab hand with the superglue). "You had better ask your daddy" I replied and when he did, my son replied, "Of course, I didnt know that they even had hats, but they could have made them better fitting". I then thought that the hats would look better with a touch of paint and when I put this to my grandson he was delighted. We spent the next 15 minutes painting the hats and then I superglued them onto the figures. They looked really brilliant and he was so pleased that I got a huge hug. "You're the best grandad in the whole world" he said and at that moment I felt like it.

Later when he'd gone home, my wife asked me to have a look at the towel ring in the shower room. I did, and discovered where the 'Lego' hats had come from. The two plastic inserts that hold the towel ring in place were gone and the same held true for our bathroom and downstairs toilet.
I dont know how he thought of it, how he got them out or how he got the rings back on. Maybe next Sunday we'll find out.
The moral of this story is clear. If your son, grandson, whatever, asks you to glue hats onto his Lego figures or soldiers check the bathroom towel rings before you agree".

Good to see another bleeping geologist! :thumbsup:

I'd happily sacrifice odds and ends in the bathroom and kitchen to fuel an inventive mind! (In fact, I have!)
