I used to think that the next time I was in a silly mood I'd order a few pounds of brightly colored Dilatant compound. I certainly don't want 100 lbs of it, and even $12/lb seemed steep.
But now I'm thinking the black stuff would be nice. Except that it's $24/lb. Would just one pound really be enough? And then there are all those other neat colors….
(Other problem: the stuff seems to melt in Florida, even indoors under air conditioning. I bunch it up and two hours later it has ooozed out into a flat boring ameboid shape. Could it be the humidity? Or does it do that everywhere?)
Law school professor plays with silly putty: excellent illustration of ‘perpetual adolescence’. (Yet your manner of dress comports well with Joseph Epstein’s idea of proper adultness.)
Well, if the kids are going to leave theirs on my desk….
