glassable – n. anything that a parent tells a child not to go near because it can be broken (especially something made of glass)
With the holidays come many overly excited children and way too many glassable things out there to keep them away from. There are far too many glassable nick-knacks that could hit the ground, and they can be found just about anywhere. From the department stores to grandma’s house, or even in the display case of your own home. Holiday seasons are filled with many chocolatey, sugary treats, and this can make these kids go over the top in their sweet-induced candy high. Then fragile items might seem more glassable than ever. So, keep the kids in check, go directly to any department but china or Yuletide decorations, and hope for the best that the kids will follow your directions and not take any detour towards anything glassable along the way. If going to visit elder relatives, warn them of the impending doom that might befall any glassable items in the house, and let the grandparents plan accordingly as they wrap glassable items in tissue paper, and hide them away until Christmas vacation is over. The glassable items just might survive another season, at least until Easter.
