I was thinking last night of fads. In the 70s I had an official "Pet Rock" which I loved. The manual on care and training of Pet Rocks was very amusingly written (at least to my 7 year old mind). Pet Rocks were particularly great at learning to "stay" and "play dead". It came in a little carton full of straw with the manual and I think, a leash.

My dad was a good model for how to gently enjoy human absurdity and I remember him being super entertained by the pet rock and playing along with it super well.

OMG, I never read that! It's hilarious. (Or at least I don't recall reading it. And as with so many things from My Yout', I no longer have the documentation.)

I may still have the rock, though. Is it too late to start training????
