Etsy Envy - If we were playing Scattergories, then I'd get double points for that heading. Now, I don't really have a problem with Etsy. My issue is with anyone who is qualified to sell stuff there. The artsy, crafty and/or creative people. I am completely jealous of people who can create something cool, who can envision what something could become and then make the transformation, who can transform the "blah" into the "wow", who can paint or draw or sew or knit or whatever.
Experiment - Have you ever pigged out on gummy worms? Did you feel bloated after the fact? Well, Becky and Brandon told us that gummy worms expand in liquid. Not that we don't trust them, but we had to check this out ourselves. And we're homeschoolers, so we can call it science. Anyway, we measured a gummy worm, then kept it in water for about 24 hours, then measured it again. Wowza!! Check this out. There are other pics on our Webshots page, but this should suffice for here. The thing doubled in size!!!
The original worm at 3.75 inches.
The bloated worm at 7 inches.
