Sigh. Rainbow Looms. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you might want to go ahead and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate your good fortune.
But if you immediately roll your eyes upon hearing or seeing the words Rainbow Looms -- then you'll totally empathize with what I'm about to say.
They're slowly taking over my house, and my life, people. They invaded us a little over a month ago -- and I swear I just haven't been the same since. My son received his loom kit in lieu of a goody bag at a birthday party, and ever since then, he seems to be mistaking me for some sort of bracelet making machine who has no problem working for free.
I'm cheap labor, and he digs it. And now I'm practically looming bracelets in my sleep and wonder if I'll ever manage to crawl out from under the mounds of rubber bands that can be found in every corner of my house.
On that note, here's a better depiction of seven ways Rainbow Looms are slowly taking over my life and probably yours too.
