When Ms. Day first saw that the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org) was acknowledging National Poison Prevention Week, she was quite dismayed. She didnt know if the event planners over there wanted to devote an entire week to stopping people from enjoying Bell Biv DeVoes classic track, or if they wanted to help the public avoid Bret Michaels. Either way, Ms. Day didnt like it (fine, pouty-mouth Brets a little, um, odd now what with the cowboy motif and all but Talk Dirty to Me still rawks). You can imagine her relief when she discovered that the Science Center was really trying to teach folks about actual poison you know, the stuff that can kill you. Whew. During todays poison-prevention Lunch & Learn presentation at noon, Poison Ivy Tominack elucidates the ever-important differences between poisons and their similar-looking, safe counterparts. Itll be nothin but a good time how can you resist? Especially since its free (parking, too).
