How to keep daughter’s boyfriend occupied: Make him build a magic igloo
Some mothers are more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure their daughter’s boyfriend’s thoughts stay on the straight and narrow, but some are willing to go a whole heck of a lot farther than that to freeze any inappropriate thoughts in their tracks.
Brigid Burton of Edmonton, Canada has set a new standard in this arena with the ambitious project she planned for her daughter’s beau, engineering student Daniel Gray.
Burton says, “I wanted to keep him occupied, not with my daughter necessarily. I wanted to keep him busy with something else. I didn’t want (Dan) to just be twiddling his thumbs while he’s here in Canada so I thought, this needs to be something that’s got some meat to it.” Since October, the protective mother had been collecting countless milk cartons to make the multihued icy building bricks out of water and food coloring for the ambitious project.
We’re not sure if it succeeded in cooling his passions, but at least there was plenty of time for family bonding during the 150 hours it took them to complete the unique structure.
