A fresh tub of Play-Doh.

Can you smell it?

No?

Okay, try this: Close your eyes. Imagine rolling it between your hands, forming first a ball, then a long snake that curls as you twist it between your palms. Flatten it on the kitchen table of your childhood (or back patio, or bedroom carpet). Cut it into circles, or stars. Make a play-doh blueberry pie. Serve tiny slices to another person on little plates also made of play-doh.

Now can you smell it?

Yes? Then it's like we're in the same room.

I love Play-Doh! I saw a woman walking down the street the other day with hot pink pants and the phrase "Play-Doh pink" came to mind, that neon color, which I hope to use in a story some day :)
