When I was a kid messing around in school, there was always fun to be had with glue. We would lay a thin puddle of it on the inside of our desks and when it was dry cut it into fake fingernails. All you had to do was lick them and stick them on!
The other thing we would do – or maybe it was just me, was to make a fist so the skin on the back of our hands was tight and smooth and cover it with a barely there layer of glue. When it dried you could barely see it on your skin except for a slight sheen you wouldn’t ordinarily have. And best of all, when you straightened your hand – the skin on the back that was so smooth and taut – would look like the skin on the hand of an 80 year old. Amazing stuff!
Even more amazing? I don’t have to use glue to make my hands look like that anymore. Sigh-h-h.
