"I made a huge mistake."
It's a tale as old as time: little boy discovers claw machine, little boy discovers he can climb inside claw machine, panicked grandma calls the fire department to get little boy out of claw machine.
Earlier this week, 18-month-old Colin Lambert from Maryville, Tennessee was chilling with his grandmother at the local laundromat when he figured out that it was technically possible to jam his little body up into the workings of the establishment's claw machine. So, being an 18-month-old kid, that's exactly what he did. Unfortunately, being an 18-month-old kid, he didn't consider whether it was possible to climb his way back out again. So...
"Is this my new life?"
Honestly, I don't blame the kid. I'm about 500 months older than Colin, and I'm pretty sure I'd have made the same mistake if I suddenly discovered that I could somehow wedge my aging, adipose body up into that thing. Luckily, as I get older, there's an ever-decreasing number of things that I can get myself into. So, my wife rarely has to call the fire department for me these days.
