The Challenge: Buy something that captures the spirit of childhood for under $5.00 (including tax).
My “find” totaled $0.99. As you can see it is a glow-in-the-dark eyeball bouncy ball. There is something magical about bouncy balls when you’re a kid. Maybe it’s their unruly and unpredictable nature. Maybe it’s because it’s one of the only cool prizes in the gumball machines that you can afford as a kid. I’m not sure but I think it definitely serves as a product that captures the spirit of childhood. Jason and I actually went into the dark bathroom to see how it glows. Boy, did that bring back memories.
Two words: silly string.
Purchased at Walgreen’s for $2.99. I never really got a chance to play with this stuff when I was a kid. (After the cleanup, I can see why.) I had a blast ambushing Kim as soon as I got home. It was even kind of fun when she stole the cannister and turned the tables on me. I don’t know who the heck invented this stuff, but something tells me they were virtually Adultitis-free.
So, who was most creative with today’s challenge? Who went beyond the comfort zone and put the biggest hammer on Adultitis? Who did a better job of capturing the spirit of childhood, Kim or Jason? Cast Your Vote!
