…which means we still have a Question of the Day. Recently, I posed this one:
“If you had a ball, a slinky, a marble, a pancake, and a fuzzy slipper, what would you invent with them?”
My response was:
“an extremely difficult obstacle course for Polly Pockets”
Our Girl’s response was “a very bouncy, skinny, round, tasty, warm bed”
Paco, after reading the question through once, asked, “Are we allowed to answer with pictures?” Assured that this approach fell within the bounds of Whiteboard Protocol, he hastened off to the bedroom with a piece of paper and a pencil, emerging four minutes later looking sweaty and disheveled but holding this mock-up. A lengthy explanation of his contraption ensued, but I was too busy pulling a hairball out of the bath tub drain to focus properly. All I can remember is that the invention does some sliding and flinging and sproinging, and probably someone loses his superpowers or perhaps his head in the end.
Groom, of course, knew exactly what a pancake, a slinky, and soft fuzzy stuff would be best at snagging.
How ’bout you, Poodles?
What would you create with a ball, a slinky, a marble, a pancake, and a fuzzy slipper?
