It's True! It really works!

  1. Okay, I know that I'm probably the last person on the earth to find this out, but I'll share my newest piece of info with all of you.

    Wint-o-green lifesavers really do spark in the dark! The hubby and I tested it out last night - yes, our lives are that boring!

    Anyway, just thought I would share.

    Hi Sara,

    Coming from a husband/wife couple who have lives even more boing than yours, try opening an individual band-aid package in the dark. It sparks too. Must be the glue they use to hold it together.

    I think I may know alot of people out there that would love to have someone in their lives, to share such moments(not trival or boring) they are fun..sweet moments. Enjoy them:kiss

    Ooooh, I remember doing that with the lifesavers as a kid. A bunch of us would get in a closet with a pack of wintergreen and chew away with our mouths wide open and watch the spark show!

    I didn't know that about the band aids though, I'll have to try it!

    Someone else whose lives are boring!!!!

    One time, DH and I had a juice box drinking contest to see who could suck one down the fastest. After about 3 boxes (and their little straws) I sure felt a "buzz"!!!!

    What exciting Friday night fun

    I love silly little moments like that . Hubby and I were in the car the other day and "I'm too sexy" came on the radio at the stop light - hubby started goofing around dancing in his seat with lots of arm motions. Then I noticed the 5 young people in the car right next to us watching and laughing wildly. They started chair dancing in unison as they pulled away from the stoplight. Was probably one of those hadtabethere moments, but it was a riot.

    For more simple entertainment....try microwaving marshmallows!! They get really huge. If you have any peeps left over from Easter, they might work also.

    I am a big one on simple entertainment.....I like to fill up the washing machine with rinse water and poor the fabric softener in slowly to watch it billow out in the water....:chuckle :chuckle
