Edible glitter is, admittedly, awesome. And it makes last-minute birthday cakes look fabulous with very little effort. But it isn’t cheap, and should not be wasted.
So imagine, O my readers, that you are a rather sleep-deprived (and thus silly) Catherine who has just spilled a teaspoon or so edible glitter on the kitchen bench.
a) Attempt to spoon it back into the container? (hint: this doesn’t work)
b) Clean it up?
c) Decide that it would be simply wasteful to just clean it up, and instead start finger-painting with it, using it as glittery eyeshadow and indian warpaint and hair glitter and trying to convince your husband that he would look extremely chic with green glitter in his hair and on his nose?
If you answered (c) to this question, congratulations! You have now strewn glitter all over yourself (clothes turn out to be no protection at all), every surface in the house, and the cat. Though let me tell you, black fur looks just fabulous with tiny sparks of green glitter catching the light.
There’s only one drawback to this amazing festival of glitter.
It really is *extremely* scratchy.
I think I need a shower.
