Happy Birthday Lava Lamps!
Woo hoo! Forty years ago this week lava lamps were created.
OK, unless you're a child of the 70s like me, this probably doesn't mean crap to you. But I remember being mesmerized by the oozing, floating lumps o' lava. I could stand in the store and watch the lava bubble and move forever until my mom dragged me away.
I don't know why I couldn't have a lava lamp, mom! Why was I denied?! Anyone out there have one? I want to hear about it.
Maybe I was really frugal with my allowance but I think they were too expensive for me. Or at least I'm sure that's what my "save every dime" mother told me to prevent me spending my money on one. I'm sure I would have been a much happier kid had I had one.
Way cool, or as JJ would say, "dy-no-mite!"
