Warning signs can be helpful advising us of hidden hazards like not using a hair blower in the shower.
I knew that already. Those that did not know--well, I will not comment beyond "Darwin Award"
Now I know something else that might have saved me from disaster!
A few days ago I was at a trails event and among the items passed out was a popular
fishing lure promoting Oakland County and our great outdoors.
During lunch break I took my leaflets and small items and went outside.
I was sitting under a sassafras tree rich with fiery orange leaves and was about to sink my teeth into a
turkey sandwich when I happened to flip the bubble wrapped lure over and read the back of the package.
I am lucky I did. The warning may have saved my life. I was going to eat the fishing lure too.
I discovered that the trebled hooked lure from Eppinger Manufacturing in Dearborn, Michigan is:
"HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED"
Wow! I did not know that!
I wonder if fish know that.
