There's a new fashion rage sweeping across Ohio (and maybe elsewhere). They are called silly bands. "What are they?" you ask. Tiny little rubber bracelets for kids that come in a variety of shapes: animals, angels, guitars, you name it. The kids put these multi-colored bands on their arms and parade around comparing which ones they have to the ones their friends have. Then they trade to get ones they don't have. It's a big deal.
So the other day, my daughter came home begging me to go to the store to buy some silly bands. "That's silly!" I replied.
"But Mom, everybody has them!"
"So can I please have some?"
'How much are they?" I asked.
"Two dollars and fifty cents." was the reply.
"Well I guess that won't break the bank," I said.
We found them, she put thirty of them on, and was considered "cool" by her friends.
I wish I had been the guy from Toledo, Ohio who had thought to make them! I bet he'll be making millions from those silly bands!
