$20 @ Michael’s:
Paul found a vinyl Stormtrooper on Clearance at Target for $10 (marked down from $20)! After debating whether or not the marker was washable, we found that I am never wrong and it is not erasable. If you have a Mr. Clean-type sponge, it sort of works. We made the decision to decorate it as a group, but Paul with his shaky hands and I with my fear of permanent mistakes bowed out. Ultimately, Laura colored everything but the eyeballs.
For some reason, the pointlessness of this story reminds me of those terrible journal entries we had to write in middle school. Just an annoying honey-do slapped up on the whiteboard, antagonizing you right as you enter the room. “WTF? I just walked in the room and you already want something from me? Your ex-husband is a smart man!” I would include in my written response. But seriously, if you see one of these Vinyl Stormtroopers on sale, it’s $10 worth of fun.
