scissors (used with a sing. or pl. verb) A cutting implement consisting of two blades joined by a swivel pin that allows the cutting edges to be opened and closed.
Dumb: allowing Grace to have a pair in her room against my better judgement
Dumber: trying to take scissors away from Juannie when said blades joined by a swivel pin are open and he's holding the scissors with both hands. His first cutting experience was a success. I have a huge V shaped cut on my thumb. Job well done.
Award definitely deserved.
