Pensive day today. . .thoughts overwhelming mixed with joy mixed with more “reality”. . .then there is comic relief right at the end. As I was laboring over getting the kitchen clean while pondering some very serious and weighty matters , my kids were playing with something their dear aunt and uncle gave them for Easter. It is touted as “styrofoam putty” and is, quite frankly, the most vile “toy” I’ve ever run across. If you’ve not had the pleasure, allow me to describe it for you.
It is sort of like silly putty in liquid-ish form–very brightly colored–with tiny styrofoam balls in in it. It gets on EVERYTHING, and can only be removed by, essentially, “washing” your hands or the item with more of the goo.
Ewww. . .ewww. . .double ewww.
Thankfully I had the foresight to send them outside to play with it, and I think even the kids lost their infatuation with it VERY quickly. If you are given any of this, sneak it into the trash as fast as you possibly can.
If you either ARE or are related TO the inventor of it, or if you have a personal love of this substance, would you like some hot pink and aqua blue styrofoam putty to go with your collection???
