A Girl’s Secret

December 19th, 2008 · 9 Comments

What a find!

Tonight, my wife and I were Christmas shopping for our daughters. This was the clothes and accessories phase of the gift search.  My shoulders slumped as we walked into another girly store, Claire’s. My eyes wandered around the store, past the hair bands, past the ear-rings, paused briefly on the pink feather boas, then zeroed in on the fly tying find of the week: A Girl’s Secret, Sporty Girl Foam Wrap.

30 yard rolls of .5mm Polyurethane Foam, 2.5 inches wide.  $4 per roll, second one is 50% off.  Yellow and Orange (and green, blue, red, purple, and yes, pink).

    Sweet! It sounds kinky, so of course. . . I love it.

    dude, that stuff is money. What does it say on the inside of those rolls?

    Inside the roll it says Mueller.

    The package had a URL: http://www.karencarson.com. I visited her site, and didn’t see this stuff for sale.

    A google search for “a girl’s secret” didn’t yield any either, but was good for some distraction 🙂
