The Crayola Bomb

"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination."

Thats so cute...It reminds me of a moving about balloons I saw as a child. The story was about a red balloon that got loose and they boy who chased it all over town. He ended up finding it and a thousand more to boot. It was a great story. Thanks for reminding me of such a pleasant thought.

Love to You.
