Little things I am grateful for today:

  • - hair binders (whatever did I call these before I moved to Minnesota? hair rubber-bands? hair elastics?)
  • - water bottles
  • - the sun (actually the sun is very large, but you know what I mean)
  • - nice coworkers (some of them are large too -- although not as large as the sun)
  • - Famous Dave's gift certificates

I actually grew up calling them "Scrunchies"

We have a famous Dave's gift card to use too :) Yum Yum.

You know, I was thinking "scrunchies," but I thought that only referred to the binders with the fabric around them. But maybe that's all I used. It's a puzzler. :)

Rebecca said...

I think we called them scrunchies because the ones with fabric were what was popular then...

Ponytail holders! Are you losing all your Illinoian (Illinoisan?) terminology?? :)

(Actually...I don't know if anyone else called them this, but I know that's what I've always called them.)

I called them ponytail holders too if it was just the rubber band. Or the weird one that had little balls on each end that wrapped around each other. I never could figure out how to put those in my own hair. It was a scrunchy if it had fabric on it. And don't think my mom didn't make scrunchies to match our flowered shorts!
P.S. Wednesday night and still pregnant.

i vote for scrunchies. anything with or without fabric that is rubber-band like that can hold hair in a bunch. scrunchies i say!

Meg said...

Holy buckets, you know what? Alison and Heather have it... "ponytail holders"!! That's totally it. I can't believe I forgot that. Whew. Thanks.

And yeah, the ones with the balls were stumpers. Wayy too complicated and mysterious.

Heather, hang in there... I know it sucks!

They may have been ponytail holders when you were with your friends, but at the Ryan household, I believe they were...
Doo dahs!

See, I knew I could count on people to come through here. "Doo-dahs," of course, Jean I forgot all about that! Now, I kind of thought "doo-dahs" were only the ones with the balls. But did it include ANY holder?
