In case you were wondering

Did you know that one cubic foot of styrofoam packing peanuts can create enough small pieces to cover 1200 square feet of space?

Did you know that three children under age 4 can perform that experiment in about 10 minutes?

Did you know that a regular vacuum bag can only vacuum up about 10 square feet of packing peanuts before it's full?

Did you know that sweeping packing peanuts is very hard due to static electricity?

Did you know if a man comes home, sees the packing peanut mess and says, "Did you know they were doing this?" that one can think of about 961 ways to cause him bodily harm in the time it takes to clean up the mess?

Did you know that after cleaning up a mess of this magnitude it would be in said man's best interest to prepare this woman a fruity drink with an umbrella instead of sneaking out to walk the dog?

Where's that $#%$ fairy godmother when you really need her?

Wow, and I thought vacuuming dog hair and fabric scraps was a pain! Fruity drink, indeed!

I used your twirly skirt instructions to make my daughter ... a twirly skirt. Good instructions, by the way! I posted a photo today if you're interested.

I know that 's not really funny, but the way you tell it makes it so. I have grand daughters who I can see playing with packing peanuts and making such a mess. I found your blog by reading Cheryl's and seeing her twirly skirt. Which post do you tell about it?
