Eleanor very much likes Play-Doh, and we often use cookie cutters to create different shapes. But sometimes she wants a more three-dimensional creature, so then Greg and I have to put our very limited artistic skills to work. She always asks us to make cows, but I sometimes veer from that just to make her life, and mine, a little more interesting
Play-Doh is harder to work with than you might think. You can’t add pieces as an afterthought because they tend to fall off, so you really have to sculpt your animal from one solid piece of dough. Greg and I often make each other guess what we’ve created.
I crafted a creature the other day that I hadn’t tried before, and Greg immediately knew what it was. Initially I thought, I’m amazing at this. Then I thought, no, I’m actually not, and this is just one more sign that I married the right man. Because he can identify my deformed Play-Doh animals.
So I’m putting it to a survey. Can you guess what this figure is? And be as specific as possible (guess poodle instead of dog, for example). I’ll give you the answer on Friday.
