a new hobby.

so i've recently joined a group that i think might be fun: the toy society.

basically, the premise is that you create a toy--by hand, you can't just go buy one--and give it away.  it's the way the toy is given that makes it fun.

you leave the toy with a note that says "take me home, i'm yours" and instructions for the finder to send an e-mail letting the society know that the toy's been found.  that's it.  that's all. 

you make it.  you give it away.  you may or may not ever find out what little kid gets the toy.

so to celebrate my birthday this year, gabe and i made my first drop at the denton library north branch.

it was fun to sneak around and try to hide the toy in a good spot where it would be found.  and the extra set of eyes and courage gabe provided was nice.

we picked a bright lime green chair in the children's section:

i look forward to finding out if the new owner of the toy contacts the society and to making/dropping more toys in the future.
