the stuff dreams are (not) made of
Today I did something I never in my life dreamt I would do - I spent the better part of an hour removing Silly Putty from some bed sheets. Thankfully they were not my bed sheets, but they were Gracie's. Who knew that Silly Putty - the stuff Nate and his brother used to throw at their moving ceiling fan just to see where it would land - the stuff that used to let you "copy" news print - the stuff you could do just about anything with and it would come right up and fit back into its tiny little egg-shape home - would adhere to sheets! It turns out it also likes carpet and various other fabric and fibers too. So Mothers (and Fathers) Beware!!!!
