She also loves to share things - be it recipes, makeup tips, or items she finds along the way and decides that everyone needs one too. The subject of this post falls into that last category.
A few weeks ago, she sent me a Facebook message that said, "OMG Pat and I just had drinks with some LED ice cubes I bought, and though he was puzzled at first, now we both love them! Keep an eye on your mail." And I thought to myself, OK, sure, but this is gonna puzzle The Tim to no end. Almost immediately after that, I completely forgot the whole thing.
About a week after that, I got a package in the mail that contained what looked like small containers of many many many teeny tiny little beads. Now, I admittedly have made some questionable online purchases in my day, but I was 99.999999% certain that I would never buy containers of small beads - and not so many, in any case! Then I read the package insert, and it explained that they were the LED ice cubes, and how to use them.
Fast forward, past weeks of The Tim asking me, "Why did she send those to us?" or "Why would she buy them in the first place?" or "I think they are dumb, we'll never use them," or variations of such questions approximately one hundred times. Last Friday night, we decided to have a drink while re-watching a "Mad Men" episode and The Tim decided to give them a try. Before he brought them upstairs, he took a video, which has Pip sitting on the chair right next where he set the drinks, originally so he could take a photo to send to Amanda. I could not easily figure out how to share that with you on Chromebook, other than the previous video link, but I have also tried putting it on YouTube, so this may work instead/as well - I mean, who knows?
In case you can't see it, the video shows Pip taking a look to see what is happening. But the funny thing in the video is that he looks for a couple of seconds, and then turns away as if to say, "Humans are so weird. That looks stupid." He doesn't even have anything to say about it, which in his case, is quite amazing!
In any case, at least the thumbnail image above gives you an idea of the whole thing. 😀
