RandomAnthony | 14536 comments My ten year old returned home from his first day of school today...I asked him if he had any homework. He said he's supposed to take five to ten small objects in a bag to school that he's going to use to introduce himself to the class.

What five to ten items would you bring?

But those are material objects--grapes, melons, a barrel, etc.--all arranged to represent a man's face. I was just going by the title of the thread...

Benny and Joon ain't bad, but it couldn't represent me...I do wish I could do Benny's keen Charlie Chaplin imitation, though.

message 24: by Barb (last edited Sep 01, 2010 06:56PM) (new)

Barb Oh man ... I'm gonna have to think about this one.
How do I define myself in general, much less with objects. Will think on it while the dog poops.


Update:
I guess I would bring my blackberry, a picture of my daughter / husband, my favorite coffee cup, an mp3 player loaded with my favorite music, and whatever book I'm currently reading.

At first glance I read this as "the smell of a baby freshly tubed." That made me stop and worry for a second. :)


message 29: by Cambridge (last edited Sep 01, 2010 09:57PM) (new)

Cambridge (hsquare) | 509 comments hahaha not sure what that could be (test tube babies? ;) . . . and not sure I want to know that smell.

But clean baby smell is like a hot bath, hot toddy and curling up by the fire.

Ultimate aromatherapy!


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I agree that a clean baby smells like comfort to me as well.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Were you in my son's fourth grade class, his teacher would be rather miffed at you guys for bringing in babies (for the smell, I assume), beagles, moose (!) and melty ice cream. But I love you anyway.


message 32: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i am used to that. in the fourth grade, when we used to have Show & Tell once a week, i would bring in stuff like a foxes skull i found in the woods. teachers were somewhat miffed then.
