Duck Tape is the Most Amazing Invention Ever

I'll be the first to admit, I'm not always up on things. But--once I discover the greatness of ____________ (fill in the blank), I'm all in.

For instance, I just discovered how amazing eBay was last year. The competitive bear that hibernates in me (most of the time) came out to play. I sat on the couch refreshing my computer every few minutes as the time ticked down to the end of the sale. I just HAD to win the must-have baby product. Once I won, I posted my triumph proudly as my facebook status. And someone commented, "Welcome to 1998".

Whatever.

I won, so there.

I have just discovered Duck Tape. I never realized just how spectacular Duck Tape is. I just bought my first roll of it this past week. It makes me feel like this:

 Superheroines Wonder Woman (Linda Carter from the 1970's TV series "Wonder Woman") - Female Super Heroes 2
(with a few more clothes on)

Did you know that Duck Tape comes in all kinds of colors and prints now?! I had no idea! I thought it was all just boring grey. This is the one I bought:


The girls have been loving on their books, so I've done a little repair work.


And my ring keeps tearing holes in the mat I use as a changing pad. We're already on our second one, so I decided to fix it myself.


Duck Tape was invented in 1942, so I'm just a few decades behind.

I don't care---I think the stuff rocks.

And now you know.

In completely unrelated news. Last week a lovely lady, Branson (isn't that just such a cool name?), at My Reflection of Something, chose my post, How Do I Love Thee?, as one of her picks for the week of February 18th. I'm honored, and flattered, Branson. Thank you.

You are too funny! I love how you fixed the books with the pretty duct tape. I am going to enter your giveaway. Glad to have found your blog! Thanks for visiting mine.

Ooh...I had no idea duct tape came in patterns! Those books look great! I've been taping ours with clear packing tape. You can barely tell where the tears were on some of them...but that may defeat the point in "reminding" the girls to be careful with their books. I don't know...or maybe two-year olds aren't big on "reminders" anyway! :)

Here from ICLW - this post made me giggle the entire way through. Welcome to 1998. :) LOLOLOL. To be honest, I had no idea it came in prints either - that's pretty cool!
