SillyBands. Also known as: silly bandz, crazy bands, fun bands, shaped rubber bands, and (my fav) funny shapes rubber band bracelet. These things are everywhere! I saw my first one this summer, then I'd see them here and there. Once school started, a few kids had them. It just looked like they had a warped rubber band around their wrist, but they're actually rubber bands shaped into cool things -usually animals. I don't know why exactly, but they are sooooo stinkin popular now! Kids have them all over their wrists now. I saw a kid wearing a huge wad of them at lunch one day. I asked how many he had -33! I want to say "What's the point?! They're just stupid rubber bands!" -because that's what all the other teachers say. But, honestly, I like them ...a lot. I think it's because I grew up with pogs. That's my conclusion. Those were basically just cardboard little circles -but they were a HUGE deal! Kids paid a lot for them and they became status symbols on the playground. I miss pogs (and slammers). Where did they go?
