Foiled Creativity

"...A 10-year-old Mexican boy dreaded returning to school after Christmas break so much that he glued his hand to his bed. Sandra Palacios spent nearly two hours Monday morning trying to free her son Diego's hand with water, oil and nail polish remover before calling authorities.

"I didn't want to go to school because vacation was so much fun," Reforma newspaper quoted the boy as saying.

Palacios said Diego sneaked into the kitchen in the early morning to get the industrial glue, which he then slathered on his right hand. She didn't hear him get up, but later awoke and found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed.

Diego's hand was fine, and paramedics managed to unstick him in time for class." (source)

This story really made me laugh because my oldest begged to stay home their first day back and even went so far as to hide one of the sneakers I had set out in his pillow case...but obviously his creativity is far inferior to this kid's.
