We have a ceiling fan in every room of our house. I enjoy the fans as they circulate cooler air, but you do need to be careful when using them. I've learned this first hand............
Exercising: Well of course you can't do a jumping jack under a ceiling fan unless you're super short!
Carrying things (like tall lamps) across the room: I smashed my beautiful lamp because I wasn't paying attention when moving it across the room and the glass smashed to smithereens. Actually, this happened to two lamps. I wonder if I learned my lesson?
Balloons: I blow up balloons on occasion for my daycare kids to play with, but we learned that we cannot have the ceiling fans running while playing with balloons or POP!!!
Balls: Same thing as balloons only they don't pop as easily.
Kids: Ummmm....ok, I haven't had an incident but you know how sometimes you swing a kid into the air and they laugh and scream “more!”? Yeah, just be careful that your ceiling fan isn't running when you do that. I was JUST about to swing a kid when I noticed the fan was running. OOPS! That would not have been pretty.
