Boy glues himself to the bedpost so he won't have to go to school

I heard about this on the radio this morning.   J-Walk had the story when I got home.

Krazy-glueHere it is:

A 10-year-old Mexican boy was so determined not to return to school after the Christmas holiday that he glued his hand to his bed.

Sandra Palacios spent nearly two hours on Monday morning trying to free her son Diego's hand with water, oil and nail polish remover before calling the authorities in the northern city of Monterrey, said police chief Jorge Camacho.

"I didn't want to go to school because vacation was so much fun," Reforma newspaper quoted the boy as saying. However, paramedics managed to release him in time for class.

Palacios said her son smothered his right hand in industrial glue. She found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed.

"I don't know why he did it," she told Reforma. "He's a good boy, but mischievous like all kids."
