When our children were small, the duty of putting together a Screen Shot 2014-12-31 at 8.55.56 PMBarbie playhouse fell, of course, to me.  It looked simple enough, until I put leg “G” into slot “F” instead of slot “H.”  The instructions — which I decided to take just a quick peak at — said something like “Don’t put leg “G” into slot “F.”  If you do, you will never be able to remove leg until long after eternity.” (or something like that).
