remove glitter with play dough!
i have been told, more than once, but less than a million times
that people in my presence
inexplicably end up with glitter
stuck to them or on their food or in unexpectedly odd places
or see traces of it stuck to my face or hair or feet
while it is true that i do enjoy a great love
of the sparkling wonder that is glitter
i know there are those of you
who may need an easy way
to rid yourself, or your things, or your cake, or your abode
of all that remains
i have a fine gift for you
an easy and magical method to clean it up
you are welcome.
clearing up glitter can be tough. it turns out that there’s one easy way to get rid of those sparkles that spread everywhere. just grab some play dough and press it over the affected areas. that’s pretty much it.
“she who leaves a trail of glitter will never be forgotten.”
-some wise person
one of my grandies saw that a tiny piece of glitter
had made its way
onto a big piece of birthday cake
that had come from
a sealed and wrapped bakery package
“somehow, whenever you are around us, there is always glitter.”
that made me so happy.
“glitter is my makeup of choice.”
have you ever asked yourself,
“will today be the day I combine my love of baking with my love of arts and crafts?”
if this is the day, here’s what can help
the brand new disco, glitter, chocolate chips
this hit all the sweet spots for me
a holy trinity of sins.
“you know, your clothes may say disco, but your eyes say rock and roll.”

(it could just be a piece of glitter gone rogue)
i do love the quote below though, and i’m going with that.
“you sparkle with larceny.”
Wilson Mizner, American playwright (1876-1933)
at last, at long last
after many days of waiting
with no pending arrival date
once called ‘non-essential’
my glitter shoes have arrived
balance is restored.
“a little glitter can turn your whole day around.”
“demon pox. there’s always demon pox.”

(not me or my shoes, but she wore them well and they were clearly essential)
way back in march
when quarantine suddenly began
for some reason
the first things i immediately ordered were
a cherry blossom doormat and a pair of glittery shoes
(both are always good to have on hand during a pandemic)
the mat arrived quickly and is happily living outside my door
the shoes however have not yet made their way to my door
as it was determined that they are ‘non-essential’
and therefore will be delivered sometime late in june
one woman’s essential is another’s folly
all a matter of perspective.
“the first essential, of course, is to know what you want.”

i’ve finally found my perfect soap for all this scrubbing.
a little glitter can really turn things around.
“it is the art of mankind to polish the world, and every one who works is scrubbing in some part.”
-Henry David Thoreau

when my laptop charger suddenly stopped working
and I couldn’t get it to fit snuggly into
the magnetic biggish hole thing with the connector dots on the one side of my computer
I reluctantly made a trip to the apple store and bought a new charger
I took it home, tried to plug it in, and got the same results.
I then took it to my local guys who work on apple stuff
asked how much it would be to replace that part
and instead of giving me a price
one grabbed a pair of tweezers
and pulled something out of it
“it should work just fine now.
it looks like a tiny piece of.metal, glitter? somehow got in the hole.”
well, come to think of it, I have had a few glitter ‘incidents’
where it was stuck to me or other people around me or on things…
price for the tweezer instant repair method. free.
“fortune is like glass – the brighter the glitter, the more easily broken.”
two words you don’t often find together.
how could i pass this up?
whoever named this is brilliant
it’s sure to bring a little sparkle to my home
la casita pacifica was just waiting for this
and didn’t even know it.
“I could see myself as a glitter hippie.”
