Wednesday 14 January 2004 — This is over 19 years old. Be careful.
One of my autistic son’s small aggravating habits is emptying shampoo bottles. He takes showers by himself, and is usually well-behaved. But shampoo bottles are very tempting, and he gets into phases where he uses a bottle per shower. We try to watch over him, and we buy him cheap shampoo so that we don’t care so much. We would rather he didn’t do it, but we’ve gotten used to it as a minor irritant.
Then yesterday my 11-year old needed to build a project for school:
“Do we have two soda bottles I can attach neck-to-neck?”
“No, but we have some shampoo bottles...”
Sometimes things work out in ways you don’t expect!
seems like the effort to refill a smaller bottle (periodically or daily, or however often) would be less than the effort of buying a new bottle.
Maybe we just don't get it: I'll try playing with my bottle tomorrow morning and see if it's that funny!!!
i am ned's son, max. The project I had to do for school was to create a timer that could time any amount of time between 2 and 10 minutes. First, I filled one bottle with water. I attached the two shampoo bottles together using electrical tape to create an aquatic hourglass, then my dad drilled two holes in the bottles for the air to escape through. finally, i put a piece of masking tape on it, flipped it over, and using a clock, marked the masking tape for one line per minute. my timer didn't win the competition, but I still had fun with it. it's called "the procrastinator" i named it after me.
