No touchy!

"No touchy!"

Here's another quote from The Emperor's New Groove (2000). (Almost all of the characters have funny lines, which makes it one of my favorites.)

Emperor Cuzco says this particular line and it comes in handy when I don't want anyone's mitts on something. The screen saver of my first cell phone read No touchy!

My spouse and kids love surprises and feel disappointed if they accidentally come across a gift meant for them. So a No touchy! sign on the hiding place (box, closet, drawer) warns them to stay out.

I used to be a snooper when I was young, until one year when I found all of the stashed Christmas gifts.  Christmas morning held no surprises... unless I count the surprise of a missing gift.  Mom forgot to put one of my presents out, and in order to get it, I had to fess up to finding it. 

There was no magic for me that Christmas morning, and it cured me of snooping. Wish I had understood No touchy! back then.

  2. Ok, I'm going to have to watch that movie. LOL

    1. What? You haven't watched The Emperor's New Groove? I love the humor in it, the voices, the likeable villains...
