I just did something stupid. I have this habit of making things out of bluetack while I’m studying and working… It helps me concentrate, and retain information. I do it so often I brought myself a little pot of ‘Fun Dough’ (which is the budget-girls equivalent of play dough) to grab when I’m working at my computer.
Anyway, This morning I had a lump of white bluetack that I had absent-mindedly made into the shape of a mouse while I was reading through my emails.
I found one of those emails that you have to actually respond to – rather than just forward on to some other poor unfortunate soul, so I dropped the wad of bluetack on the edge of my keyboard, and then promptly forgot about it.
(I have the memory of a goldfish. It’s a scientific fact.)
When I glanced down an hour later I nearly fell off my chair because OH MY GOD THERE’S A RODENT. Touching me! Cue ridiculously
girly squeal badass battle-cry.
Only there wasn’t a mouse. I’m just better at bluetack sculptures than I realised. (Go me!!)
I’m really lucky I don’t share my office with people. They’d all think I’m crazy.
