The most important piece of equipment to bring on your child's School Field Trip to the Museum isn't a First Aid kit or a Cellphone.
It's a Hip Flask.
Although parts of the museum were interesting, there were certain areas where liberal doses from the flask would have helped. Namely:
- The Puppet show.
- Craft Centre.
- The crazy Old Lady who pretended to be a girl from the 1800s.
Craft Centre was a gong show. Don't they know that giving almost every child a glue stick is asking for trouble? Whoever arranged that debacle should rethink their plans next time.
A couple of nips from the flask would have helped on the bus ride home too - it would have made that game of "I Spy" go much faster.
Next field trip I'm leaving the Swiss Army Knife at home and reaching for the Hip Flask - I'll be prepared for sure.
