after working on
a few holiday projects last night
i noticed at breakfast
that i may still have a bit of collateral glitter around the house.
“take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”

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.”

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.”

(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.”

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.”
