I was bored, I had run out of people to annoy, so when my wife invited me to take a trip to the Dollar Store, I said yes. What possible mischief could I get into in a Dollar store? Things mostly went well, I was well behaved. On the way to the checkout a box caught my eye. Pop-Its, for a buck, who could turn it down.
When we got home I explored my purchase in greater depth. I loved the warning
If adult supervision is required, this is my kind of thing! I stopped growing up when I was 5.
The box contained two packets of what can best be described as miniature Hershey Kisses, but the instructions were clear “do not put in mouth, throw on ground”
I grabbed one and followed the instructions, what fun! There was an explosion that would have rattled a nervous ant. Pop it went. My wife was giving me one of those ‘oh tell me this isn’t true looks’. Well for a buck, I had a lot of fun. I still have the second pack containing another 25. I am thinking about how to use them. I rather like the idea of putting them in the Microwave, but I am certain that Jan would get grumpy with me. She took a dim view of me wanting to put a DVD in it, apparently is a lot of fun, but I have been banned from trying it.
In all likelihood that will be the last time I am invited to go to the dollar store. It’s a shame, I had a lot of fun with my dollar!
