A blooper coupon appearing in the print version of the Sunday Strib made me rethink the cost of adoption. The SciMu is offering a "FREE CHILD WITH ADULT ADMISSION". I wonder if they're giving the kids away right on the premises? And what sort of admission might result in a free child -- one of guilt, perhaps? It's not a bad idea, really. As a childless adult, if I paid admission to the Chinasaurs exhibit, I would just need the free child during the time I'm visiting the exhibit. The child could then be recyled and passed along to the next paying adult.
Other thoughts: any parent would be likely to point out that children are never free, if you're talking about money. They are, of course, free spirits, at least for awhile. That's one of their gifts! We had six little ones at a recent staff party. All but the infants got a chance to try out my digital camera and shoot images I'd never had caught. Watch for the "best of" tomorrow on OJO.
