Ooooh, something shiny!

I really like aluminum foil.
A lot.
Especially the "heavy duty" kind.
But only when it's brand new, a perfect undented sheet, freshly unrolled. It's like a blank canvas, ready and waiting for whatever I plan to do with it.

Maybe I will line a cookie sheet and make some double chocolate chip cookies.

Maybe I will try really hard to see my reflection in the shiny side, and wonder if my reflection is upset that it's about to be stuck in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Maybe I will wrap a bratwurst in it and see how well it gets cooked if I leave it in my car all day.

Maybe I will make a helmet to keep the aliens from reading my thoughts.

Or I can roll it into a ball and use it to scratch my armpits.

The possibilities are endless.

I will truly never look at foil the same way! When you make your hat, make one for me. There's a robin outside of my house trying to get a spot remover secret out of my brain!

If you have any tooth fillings put some on that and let me know what you said immediately following the incident.

It's only a matter of time before they start making foil in pretty colors like they do saran wrap. Then we can wall paper the house with it so the government can't spy on us and see how many cookies we eat.

What? Foil can be used from more than just aluminum aliens please don't read my thoughts hats?

If you're going to leave your reflection in the oven that long, make sure to use a sunblock with an SPF of about 425

Mr. Fab: I second that! Although my armpits do need a good scratching...

Metalmom: Do robins have a lot of trouble with spots?

Matt-man: Yes, I hear it hurts to do that...

Marilyn: I am eagerly looking forward to foil in pretty colors!!! And yes, the government needs to mind its own business about the cookies.

Lynda: Who knew?

Angell: NOW you tell me.... please pass the aloe vera...

Wayne: I just did a comparison taste test between the two, and you're RIGHT!!!
