Child Labor Laws? Never heard of 'em.....
Schools and organizations are shameless about turning children into little salesmen. Among the things I've been guilted into buying are cookies, wrapping paper and trash bags (although I've got to say, the trash bags were at least practical because they were thick enough that I could use them to bag leaves.... where is that neighbor kid who sells me those? Fall is a'comin'....), but this wins the prize for weirdest thing children have been recruited to sell.
Salve. Yup. Salve. Can you imagine a child ringing your doorbell and trying to sell you this stuff?
Child: It's good for chaps and mild burns.
Me: Thank heavens you're here! I've got a chapped burn and was just going to ride it out without salve! Your knock on my door couldn't be more timely!
Don't let the people that make Preparation H get wind of this....
