Yes, it's a pinata, and I made it myself for my little baby girl whose party should have been today. She's not a baby of course, she's nearly 3. This morning we decided we would have to postpone her party, because there is a rain front moving up the island and it looked like it was gonna be wet, but now it actually looks pretty lovely outside. Sigh...oh well. We will have a great party tomorrow morning instead.
Anyway, getting back to the pinata. It may surprise you to see that I've opted for a robot design. It's a carboard box with one layer of papier mache, and it's stuffed with carrot and celery sticks, and little messages about oral health and smart new toothbrushes.
Ha ha ha! No, I'm joking with you of course, it's full of fun things like cigarettes and alcohol.
Ha ha ha! I'm pulling your leg again. No, it's really full of devilled eggs.
Ha ha ha! Still I jest. No, it's actually full of the normal pinata things like little polystyrene gliders and pinky bars and freddo frogs and stickers and party blowers. Blat blat!
Happy birthday to you little Sylvie girl, we love you lots and lots and lots.
