A salty, fossilized, titanium-like menace; available in all the colors of the rainbow

I hate Play-Doh.

I hate it when it when it gets caked into the carpet. I hate it when it solidifies under my kids' fingernails. I hate it when my son tries to eat it while my back is turned.

But none of that compares to what happened today.

I was walking barefoot through the kitchen. Suddenly I felt what had to be a piece of broken glass penetrate my foot - between my second and third toe.

I look down at the ground convinced that I would see blood everywhere. I look closer. There, impaled between two of my toes is a bright blue shard of fossilized Play-Doh; just sticking straight out of my foot. I swear, the thing was 5 inches long and stronger than a piece of Titanium.

And of course, Play-Doh is full of salt, so that felt fantastic.

I begin to play tug-of-war with what now feels like a 7 foot long Titanium-like-Play-Doh splinter until it finally comes out.

Freakin' Play-Doh.

It's a menace.

A menace.

I couldn't agree more. The junk here at this house is on a shelf that even I need a stool to reach. Don't just hate it, I loath it. Refused to ever buy it for Colin and then one of my friends (not sure) gave him a HUGE play set with 20 colors.....I was not a happy mamma. Feel your pain girl - well not really but would bring you a band-aid if you need one.

I have NEVER allowed Play-Doh in my poor children probably have no idea of what it even is. The closest thing that made it inside my doors was silly putty (thank you Grandpa Kenny) and that was soon destroyed after wedging itself into the carpet.
So now are you going to make Jack feel so sorry for you because you were so close to death when you were attacked by the play-doh turned killer sword that he wants to throw it all away? :)

I HATE play-doh as well! Not just the mess of it, but I hate it when the colors get mixed together. My anxiety wells up and it's not pretty! I also hate any craft with glitter (why do they always use glitter in Sunday school, is that so it can mess up the car AND house?) Brandi
