Fidget Spinners
« on: May 18, 2017, 10:14:44 pm »
So apparently Fidget Spinners are the most important thing in the world right now.  More important than tacos, Instagram, Donald Trump, selfies-- anyway,  Laina lays it out:

I need to get one of these Right Now before people realize that I'm not cool.

Is this a thing for your generation too, kimmy?

My grade school kids is totally addicted to hers and so are all her friends but I didn't know you can be in your 30's and uncool without one.  :)

I wasn't aware that I was uncool without one, but now that I know that everybody else is doing it, I feel uncool not having one.

We had yoyos and frisbees.

This is so much worse and therefore we are doomed.

Some people are apparently having just a little too much fun with their fidget spinners.


...or maybe not!

My nephew is really into these things. I found myself compulsively fidgeting with them when he was showing them to me. I guess I see the appeal. When you get them going and you tilt your hand they feel weird. There's some force you feel like those old gyroscope toys with the spinny thing in the wire cage thing? Is this crazy talk? Does anyone know what the hell I'm saying? Like all fads, it will be nostalgia in 10 years.

I tried one last night.  So that means: I don't have to buy one.
