Forget that you don't want your family opening wire-wrapped packages with your favorite sewing scissors. Forget that they want to open cans with your lovely little and expensive collectible scissors. I mean, we all know that those are pretty good reasons to hide your scissors. But then there's this:
When you go into your fabric stash to find a piece of fabric and well, well, well. Here's one that's the right color and the right count, but one of your children has decided that they need a piece of it. And for some ungodly reason they don't need a corner of it. They need the very middle of it.
What the heck. If I had hidden the scissors, they might have gnawed it out with their teeth. Sometimes you just can't figure.
