Spaghetti Leg

Another Gem from my book "A Survival Kit for Parents"

Spaghetti Leg: Phenomenon resulting from attempts to put boots on a child, occuring as the parent orders the child to stiffen leg and push. Though the child ordinarily may have the bone structure of a Percheron and calcium deposits enough in each joint to be worth mining, this command to stiffen the leg causes a dissolving of all bones, joints and major muscles in said leg and reduces it to a state of limpness found only in overcooked spaghetti. A mother attempting to force a leg into a boot once it has achieved this jellied state might be more gainfully employed trying to thread a needle with an oyster.
