    1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
      gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

      There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
