After being home with the flu for three days, my Nutrisystem order arrived, complete with dry ice. I couldn't resist doing my Bill Nye, Science Guy, impression.
Dry ice in a sink with hot water running over it is a homemade fog machine. The dishes in the right-hand side of teh sink aren't in the water - they WERE drying in the drainer until the mysterious fog overtook them. (Just ignore the dirty dishes on the left side. They didn't enter into my science experment.)
Balloons are another fun way to entertain yourself. Dave and I (mostly Dave) blew up balloons, inserted rolled up $1 and $5 bills . . .
filled a box and shipped it to our grandsons in New Mexico.
A co-worker thought we had lost our minds - 'You're shipping air?" Dave's response was, "No, we're shipping fun!" The boys thought it was a lot more fun than receiving a card with money inside. We questioned if the balloons would still be inflated after exposure to cold air and a dramatic change in elevation - but they arrived in tact.
Now - aren't you glad I haven't been posting? :)
