Giant ball of twine!

As a young boy, I was fascinated by the several skeins of twine my father had in the garage. It was coarse string, dark brown in color, and it seems limitless in its possibility – what could we make with it today? Maybe a garland? Perhaps some rope to fashion a ladder going up to the treehouse we would some day build? Truly, that twine was like a blank canvas, its gentle winding curves an invitation to childhood daydreams.

But this ball of twine – forget it! This is too much. If my father had one of these in the garage, I think the emotions I would have felt would have been more akin to fear than wonder.

    This “ball of twine” is a fraud!

    I have been there to see it and upon further investigation discovered that it not all twine!! The owner of this “twine ball” used twine only as an outside covering. Underneath it is in fact the world’s biggest marshmallow.

    Charlatans!
