To a mum, no injury is life-threatening. 40% burns? Break out the Savlon. Sleeping-pill overdose? Half a pint of cod liver oil, then make 'em wash all the ambulances to keep 'em awake. Profuse bleeding from a dog attack? More Savlon, and the big plaster from the Elastoplast variety pack. Cranial trauma? Ice in a tea towel applied to the wound, and a quarter of chocolate mice.

       Would there also be stern lectures about the dangers of playing with matches/pills/dogs/cranial traumatisers?

       Tighten your belt another notch, and put bicycle clips round your ankles, Sleepygrass.

       I know where there are plenty of rat's asses awaiting transplant patients. Seems you can't give them away these days.

       Questions asked by A&E mums:   

       1) Are you allergic to any medication?
2) Did you think it was clever?
3) And if your friend jumped off a cliff, would you copy him then?

       So, after what [IVni] said, is this baked? Because I don't care if it is, it still gets my croissant. And a chocolate biscuit.

       5) So, you had to learn the hard way.

       6) And you can pick up ALL those fingers before you come crying to me, young man.

       "A quarter of chocolate mice"???????? What???
37PiecesOf Flair, Apr 04 2005
  

       A 4 oz. bag of sweets, made of chocolate (the sweets, not the bag), shaped like little mice (again - the sweets, not the bag). The mainstay of my confectionary youth.   

       (Yes, confectionary with an A. Confectionery, being a noun, is unsuitable for use as a qualifying adjective. No idea if it's a real word though.)

       The best we have are gummy rats.
