1. Grab the nearest book.

5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

A summer's day in the country just as the picnic basket is being packed away—this is the time to perform a few tricks with a blade of grass. Not only will people find it entertaining, but you will have evaded some of the tedious cleanup.

The shrieking monkey
Put your hands into the praying position with a long blade of grass pinched lengthways between your thumb knuckles. Now form an "O" with your mouth and press your thumb knuckles firmly against your lips.

Okay, it'd be mean to not finish that small part:

Blow hard through the almond shaped aperture and the grass will vibrate like a clarinet reed, producing an ear-splitting shriek. It's not very musical but is excellent for attracting the attention of your buddies across a millpond—and for annoying your sister.

Taken from 211 Things A Bright Boy Can Do by Tom Cutler.

Good book, that. ^^
