I really took one (more like five) for the team… one (or five) of what I’m not entirely sure, but I still took them. And we also played a rousing game of Disney Charades, which was incredibly fun. I think we should make it a staple of every family gathering from here on out, because, you know, Disney. And games. How can you go wrong?
It’s technically early Saturday morning and this has been a long week, so LET’S GET TO IT:
Top 5 Best Man-Made Things // Top 5 Friday
VITAMIN GUMMIES. As you can tell by the uppercase letters, I feel pretty strongly about this one. I think we can all agree that vitamin gummies are one of the greatest gifts to mankind– they’re delicious little candy-like fruit nuggets that are GOOD FOR YOU. And not like, “less bad for you” than other gummies or candies. Like, actually “benefiting your body and health” kind of good for you. That’s pretty boss. Shout out to vitamin gummies.
The International Space Station. So I feel like this one is pretty self explanatory. Like, a big floating house station thing? Orbiting the earth?? Capable of sustaining life and growing little experimental planties??? AMAZING. Go wikipedia that stuff. (But only if you have 5+ hours to spare. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)
Stickers. Stickers literally have no purpose other than fun and aesthetic joy. How great is that? They’re especially exciting for people like me who were not graciously endowed in the sketching/drawing/creating cool looking things talent department. Want Queen Elsa on your letter? Boom, there’s a sticker for that. Want some cool ivy work on your scrapbook page? Boom, there’s a sticker for that. Want to write your name in a cool font on that potted plant? Boom, there’re stickers for that. No need to try to free hand any of that stuff, there’s literally a sticker for everything.
Car Horns. Today I used my car horn for the first time in as long as I can remember, and even though I was totally justified in using it, I still felt like a complete tool. Why is that?? But it was a nice little beep– more of an encouragement really– and then I got to thinking that you know what? It probably sounded sort of encouraging, right? A short “bip!” just to say, “Hey man, the light’s green. Just letting you know since you’ve been sitting there idly for 15 seconds and, you know, thought you might not want to get caught at the light again. No harm no foul, just a friendly bip, man.” And then I was like, “Oh my gosh. Car horns are so cool. Our cars literally get to talk to each other. OUR CARS TALK TO EACH OTHER.” And then I wept for the tragic loss of my sanity. But car horns are still cool.
Waffle Cones. This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that when I got home tonight there were several homemade waffle cones inexplicably strewn across the counter, or the fact that I am currently munching on one of said waffle cones. But it does have to do with the fact that someone thought it was a good idea to roll up a waffle into a cone shape and put ice cream in it. AND HOW RIGHT THEY WERE. The inventor of waffle cones, whoever he/she was, is probably my favorite historical figure in the history of ever.
So there you have it, the top 5 best man-made things, at least according to my end of week, sleep-deprived, stressed out brain. Cheers.
