my halloween pumpkin:
these are bath sponges. the one on the right is the typical "2 for $1" mesh sponge. the one on the left is a $5 fancypants bamboo sponge. it is quite possibly the worst purchase i've made in decades. really. it feels so soft when it's dry. once it's wet, it soaks up enough water to weigh a few pounds. and it wads up into a mushy, cloth ball. 2 days later it's still not dry. i threw it on the floor and it hit with a THUD. griffin didn't even try to steal it. that's how bad it is. even griffin won't touch it.
