Since we're gearing up for summer reading here, there are lots of supplies just lying around and looking tempting. The theme is "Get Creative," which allows us to get creative too. Hence, there is an abnormal amount of STUFF accumulating in our back office.
Particularly tempting are the crayon, glitter glue, paint and construction paper reserves that seem to increase exponentially on a daily basis. I'm one of those people who looooooves "crafty things" and walking into the back room is like entering paradise (if the mess can be overlooked). Am I strange for thinking this way? Possibly, but I don't care. Crayons rule!
As I was breathing in the smell of creative potential (c'mon you know you recognize that smell, it's in the same family as new school supplies), I began to peek into boxes and pick up a few of the items. I was holding a bottle of glue and reminiscing about elementary school (c.1990s'), and I must have looked like I was going to run away with glue in hand because a coworker shouted, "Put that down, those are for the kids!"
I put the glue back, of course, but I'm thinking that I NEED to stop at the store tonight. What's on my list? Glitter glue, construction paper, crayons, stickers...
