I don't know if you've ever played the game "Operation". It's basically a game where you are the surgeon and draw cards to tell you what body part to take out of the patient. The surgical tool is an electrified set of tweezers and if you touch the sides, the patient's nose lights up and a buzzer sounded to let you know that you didn't succeed.

While making my son's lunch this morning I decided that it's actually training.

For parents.

I was making him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and was trying to get the knife to the bottom of the nearly empty jars without touching the sides and making a mess. I just couldn't shake the feeling that I was playing "Operation" and was waiting for the buzzer to go off.
