If that 10-year-old kid has already experienced 20 years worth of trauma, they might need a bit more than a little sage.
But keep your fingers crossed.
@NewGuy711 that was a funny meme to share! Yeah it takes more than sage and duct tape to fix 20 years of trauma. I added duct tape because it patches up a lot, just not trauma.
Dwayne Johnson in "Skyscraper" :
"If you can't fix it with duct tape, you aren't using enough".
Anything can be fixed with either duct tape or WD-40. If it moves but shouldn't, duct tape. if it doesn't move and should WD-40.
I bought a pair of scissors which were cable-tied to the backing cardboard. When I asked the shopkeeper how I should cut the cable-tie, she replied rather unhelpfully, "With a pair of scissors".
I bought a packet of plastic knives at the self-scan checkout, and had to be checked I was over 18. The next week I bought a packet of mixed plastic cutlery, including knives, but wasn't checked. Perhaps they thought the presence of forks and spoons would make me act more responsibly with the knives.
