This is a question Ignoring Instructions

When I was small, a friend of mine waved a big plastic bottle at me and asked me if I "wanted some drinking yoghurt?" I pointed out the "do not drink" label, but no, he was convinced this was a big jug of a particularly strange, liquid yoghurt that was briefly popular in the 70s.

He was sick for hours, after consuming a suprisingly large quantity of washing liquid.

What instructions have you ignored?

Dad says, "Don't touch that lamp, I'll just be a minute while I get a new lightbulb."

Literally seconds later, I'm not even squealing, having worked out that that would attract attention. I've not worked out, however, how to explain the startled look on my face and the fact that I'm holding an obviously injured hand. With the logic of a four year old (well, I was four, seems fair), and to make sure it isn't seen as my fault, I tell my Dad that I didn't touch the lamp, it bit me.

Now I'm a grown up (ish) I know lamps don't bite but am still nervous every time I change a lightbulb... And I do wonder why he left the lamp turned on with an obviously inquisitive child around...
