Day 21: In Which I Blind You With Science, Pink Mylar
Scientists in Boise, Idaho now believe that TE (Toddler Enthusiasm) for a TMB (Tacky Mylar Balloon) is inversely proportional to ME (Maternal Enthusiasm) for TMB.
Moreover, TE seems to exert an unidentified force on TMB, rendering TMB bizarrely, eternally buoyant, free to scrape around the ceiling and hover in corners, making sinister noises in the middle of the night and inducing NMHA (Near Maternal Heart Attack).
Scientists will conduct further experiments to determine if this preternatural buoyancy is due to high levels of TE alone and not, as some have suggested, due to mysterious "life-force sucking powers" of the TMB which, like a shiny, pink vampire, may actually be drawing energy from all those NMHAs.
