Game: Guess the Purpose of this Item, Take Two
This contest has two stages and several winners.
Stage 1: [concluded] Can you guess the purpose of this item?
The Prize: The winner receives glory. That’s all, but isn’t glory enough?
One Hint: I was going to include this item in an article titled Three Baby Products for a Fanatically Deranged Baseball-Obsessed
Parent. Although, knowing me, hints aren’t always meant to help
(see the previous contest that lasted to 25 questions).
Update: Oh, snap! Glory goes to Meg and Kate who were the first to correctly identify this green clump as a baby hat. Yes, indeed, it is Kate’s Moss by Zooni. I saw one in person last week and was duly, umm,
intrigued. There really is truth in advertising. The kid looked like he
was wearing a clump of moss on his head.
Some product blogs call this hat hip and cute. I love the more
carefully worded descriptions of "creative" and "turning heads
everywhere." You got that right.
Stage 2 [concluded, sort of]: Suggest a new, more inventive purpose for this item. It need not be parenting-related, but there’s extra glory if you manage it.
The Rules: Simply tell us an alternate idea or use for the item. So, what is it?
Update: Glory plaudits go to:
- Christy for guessing a hand warmer for when watching baseball games.
- Chelsea for guessing a baseball purse… because that guess makes absolutely no sense at all.
- Mega glory to Jodi for suggesting a new style of Pee Pee Tee Pee. I’ve seen too many parents who let their kids (boys and girls) pee into the grass at the park.
My guess would have been… Sigmund from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.
Please don’t stop… Do continue suggesting alternate uses…
