We are having some work done at out place - aka putting in some decks and patio areas. Don't ask me why they need cones to do that but there you have it. They left them there overnight and of course my children see them as instant entertainment.
Here is the ex-ballerina doing some conehead ballet.
I tried to tell them that when I was at school (Macleans College), this was called the Dunce's Hat, and our principal (the name for them now is Head, so I believe), would make us run around the school wearing it as a hat on our heads to let everyone know in the school, and everyone driving by, that we had done something particularly dumb.
But I don't think the kids believed me.
