You know what I don’t have that I think would be cool to have? A can of green Play-Doh. Proper green, not half a can of yellow and blue mixed.
I’m not sure how long I’ve had the cans of Play-Doh I keep on my desk. They are new enough that the kid isn’t on the can. Actually I have 2 older cans that still have the Playschool logo and the Tonka copyright, but the contents have… evolved into something other than Play-Doh. I’m not sure, but I think at least one of them might be a biohazard at this point.
One of them was my sister’s at some point. I can tell because the lid has pen scribbles all over it. She went through a ballpoint phase where many of her things gained alterations, shall we say? I’m not sure how I inherited it. Most likely she discarded it and I claimed it.
I honestly can’t remember how I ended up with the newer cans. They must have been in some kind of Halloween set because the colors are orange. black, blue, and yellow. I almost have to have bought them on a whim. I did a lot of that sort of thing at one point.
Anyway, I like to squish the stuff aimlessly when I’m not focused on anything. I guess it’s stress relief. Actually molding stuff out of it is no good. Detail is too hard to gain, or maintain.
