My niece, Miley Moleturd, bought her a boomerang at an Australia Show and brought it home.
"I don't know how to use it, Moley."
"Me neither. Let's just take it outside and throw it." So we did and I flung it hard over towards our neighbor's Cristofori's house. Nothing.
"Let's go back in, Miley. I'll give you your money baaaaaa!" then the thing hit me and nearly took my head off."
"Is my head still attached, Miley."
"Yes Uncle Moley, but Mr. Cristofori's wig is there by the thing."
"Throw it away. NOT the boomerang." I ran for the house but it still got me.
"OOOOh, it's got a frog's head. Poor old Froggy. That was Mr. C's son's pet."
"Say no more Say no more. Give me that Boomeranng and don't toss it. Take it to the store and see if they will buy it,"
(Later) "Mr. C was at the store bald as an eagle. So I just hid the boomerang. The store owner gave me some batteries for it."
"At least you got something."
"Yep. Plus he said they were free and no charge."
"I'm going to go back to bed now, rest my neck, and then get up again.
