Happiness is the Bomb

A quote for today:

"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination."

~Robert Fulghum

What a heart-warming idea. Let's do it!

Great idea! I still color everytime my girls break out the crayons.

Is it bad to admit that I even have my own coloring books that the girls aren't allowed to use? Yes, I am a dork!

Great idea! I'm not too ashamed to admit I stayed up late to color last night.

I hope yellow lands on me. :D
