Dinosaurs are Still Rad, People

You do not need children to make this happen. But blue food coloring is mandatory.

It never gets old.@n

hallelujah

HEY I MIGHT NAME MY FETUS TALLULAH! But man does that big block of ice give me the shivery goosebumps. No thank you.

I have a dozen plastic dinosaur toys from a craft project that didn't pan out. Obviously I know what to do with them now. I mean, other than arrange them in various dinosaur tableaux around my apartment.

That....is fucking awesome.

I grew up in New England, and so half our recesses in elementary school happened outside in the snow. One of my favorite games to play with my best friend occurred in the spring, when there wasn't a ton of snow lying on the ground, but when the piles of snow that had been plowed were still in existence.

We would go "excavating" for "dinosaur bones" (read: chunks of ice) in the snow/dirt-mix piles. Such fun, y'all. Such fun.

@wee_ramekin Also, I realize that this is Generation Y's version of "walking to school through the snow, uphill both ways".

I'm okay with that.

@wee_ramekin Ahh, I did a similar thing! Except instead of digging for anything, I just hollowed out a little cave as deep as I could and pretended I was an animal curling up for winter.

wee_ramekin

@wallsdonotfall Hahahahah awwwww. I can just imagine your elementary school teacher looking for you during recess and peering into a wee snow-cave to find you all curled up like a tiny baby bear cub. Heeeeeeee....I think my brain just exploded of cute.

Man, this is way better than that soap crap with a toy in the middle.

@frigwiggin DO YOU REMEMBER THOUGH, those sponge "pills" that you could put in water and MIRACLE OF MIRACLES, the coating dissolved and then you had a tiny dinosaur sponge?

Uh, 'cuz you know, uh those didn't leave an impression on me as a child either.

frigwiggin

@wee_ramekin Oh gurrrrrl, I was ALL ABOUT THOSE. Not just the dinosaur ones, but the animal ones and basically anything else that also looked tantalizingly edible in pill form. Good god, I don't understand now why those were so mindblowing.

wee_ramekin

@frigwiggin Simpler times, gurrrrl. Simpler times. (see Gen-Y comment above)

SheWhoReadsInSkirts

@frigwiggin Wait, the tantalizingly edible part begs the question: did you eat one? DID YOU?

frigwiggin

@SheWhoReadsInSkirts First off, it doesn't actually beg the question! (You know I'm correcting you with love.) Secondly, not to my knowledge. Doesn't mean I didn't want to, though.

whizz_dumb

@wee_ramekin Those were mind-blowing and they were like mini sponge versions of the dinos on my bed sheets, yes, the very same ones that George Costanza had. Looking back, those were the most useless sponges, they could absorb like 5 drops of water.

wee_ramekin

@SheWhoReadsInSkirts @frigwiggin Maybe it just "politely asks the question in a way that doesn't make you feel guilty for not carrying any change"? Can we agree on that?

SheWhoReadsInSkirts

@wee_ramekin @frigwiggin That one. You're absolutely right.
