Favorite Thing #11 – Marbles

  • Because like people and snow, each one is uniquely not quite like the other
  • Because the colors are bright and happy and have infinite patterns
  • Because I even like the imperfect ones that have little bubbles of air in them
  • Because I used to lie in bed wondering how marbles are made
  • Because you can actually play games with them that doesn’t involve batteries, a keyboard or a wand
  • Because they make a nice sound when you click them against each other
  • Because you get an instant cheap but artsy centerpiece when you put a bunch of marbles inside a glass jar

How about you? What’s one of your favorite things?

  • Because when I was a child, I was so fascinated with the miracle of how water could be liquid and solid and gas, simply by a rearrangement of the molecules. Science at work!
  • Because each one is a little work of art – have you ever tried freezing ice cubes with stuff inside them? Or adding coloring to the water, then freezing? Magic!
  • Because adding ice cubes to any drink makes it taste better (especially during the summer!)
  • Because it is fun to munch on ice
  • Because brain freeze! No explanation needed…
  • Because for once in your life, you have to try tipping a trayful of ice cubes down your shirt or your pants. Try it before you die 😉
  • Because sucking on ice helps when you are queasy
