Some days I think about this blog and I feel like I have nothing of interest to write on it. Today was one of those days until this happened:
An elderly gentleman came in with a Ziploc bag containing four Finger Monsters. "I need to return these," he said.
I nodded. "Okay."
"They're made in China and they have a funny odor. My wife is very concerned."
A little too stunned to say much, I pulled out the man's money and handed it to him.
"You can keep the bag," he said, as if it, too, were contaminated by these horrible little monsters.
I'm guessing most people have seen these little finger puppets before. They do have a funny odor. Because they are made of RUBBER. But this guy was giving me a look like we were secretly behind the spread of swine flu or something. Honestly, there are about a billion reasons it is ridiculous to be afraid of these little finger puppets, starting with the fact that they've been sitting in a warehouse in the U.S. for, more than likely, a very long time.
But I was nice, I saved my laughter for after he left.
