When The Boy was much younger, he used to say that he and his Poppy were like two pieces in a pod. We all knew what he meant which made it all the funnier.
Last month I was surfing Amazon and came across this pea pod fidget toy. Technically I think it was listed as a soybean pod. But, I thought of the two pieces in a pod as soon as I saw it. For less than $10 you could get a set of three. You guessed it, I had to have a set. I kept two and gave one away.
I have to admit that I’ve really enjoyed these. I play with them several times a day. I’m not sure what the face on the middle one is supposed to be. I say it looks like an alien. My boss says it looks like a puppy with one ear. I guess that’s subjective.
They seemed like such a silly thing when I ordered them. But, I’ve become really fond of them. They frequently become the subject of my frustration at work and to entertain myself while I’m on the phone. And, every time I them, I think of my two pieces in a pod.
Peace, Love & Pea Pods
