It's for Their Own Good

California seems to be spreading:
A ban on touching during recess at a B.C. elementary school has shocked parents, who call the new no-touch policy "ridiculous."

For most kids, recess is a chance to run around and goof-off with their friends, but a new ban on touching at a school in Aldergrove could put a damper on playtime...

...Julie Chen, a mother from the school, says she does not understand the motive behind such a strict ban.
"I can’t imagine little kids not being able to hug each other or help each other on the playground," Chen told CTV news. "Not tag, no hugging, no touching at all."

What would we do without nannies?

I bet I know what those kids' new favorite game is going to be during recess:

"I'm not touching you! [gets really close, finger extended]
I'm not touching you! [closer]
I'm not touching you! [closer and louder]
I'm not TOUCHING YOU! [closer and louder]

Some games never get old.

Especially when played in the back seat of the car, on a long trip.
