Don't Stick Your Fingers in the Light Socket

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BENTIVOLIO. Mr. Speaker, there's a lot of fighting going on right now in this Chamber, and I can tell you that there's nothing better than when I get to leave Washington and go back home to see my grandkids.

As a grandfather, I find myself giving commonsense advice to my grandchildren. It's funny to tell them obvious things and realize that it seems like sage wisdom to them. ``Emily, look both ways when you cross the street.'' ``Nathan, if you want to be big and strong, you need to eat your vegetables.'' ``Kathryn, always wear your seatbelt.'' Finally, ``Don't stick your finger in the light socket.''
