Don’t worry. I do plan to put up something interesting (at least interesting to me) besides these Friday memes. Just finding my groove while still trying to address the malware on my other WordPress sites. It’s not just cleaning up the mess, but doing what I can to prevent this kind of thing later.
- What did you most recently spray out of a can?
Shaving cream, and that was last Sunday, although I’m seeing a concert this evening so I’ll be cleaning myself up sometime before I go to town. I like shaving gels, actually, something I originally picked up because it’s what my dad mostly used when I was growing up. But I’ve tried various options over the years and keep coming back to the gels. My favorite was a medicated (not aloe, but something else) Edge that really made my skin feel good. It was discontinued by the time I got through the first can. Nowadays, I shave in three different places (home, my folks’ place, and the office) and I have a different gel in each place. So I’m kind of picky, but there’s a bit of range to my pickiness.
- What’s your favorite food (or food product) that’s sprayed from a can?
I have to admit I really love (‘though almost never indulge in) that spray cheese you supposedly put on crackers. Still, what’s better than whipped cream?
- When did you last spray-paint something?
I think it was five years ago when I was the publications advisor at the community college. We cleaned up and painted the old newspaper boxes around campus. Took a lot of ridiculous energy but they looked nice.
- What’s something that’s not sprayed from a can but would be pretty cool if it were?
I really think we haven’t explored far enough the possibilities of better ways to use butter. Real butter. Spreading it on stuff that’s not hot can be a real pain, and while the butter stick incarnation is great for most cooking uses, it fares poorly as a condiment. What about softened or whipped butter out of a can like with spray cheese or whipped cream? As long as you didn’t have to add too much to it, and if you could maintain all the wonderful qualities that make butter butter, I’d be down to give it a try.
- What’s conceptually the oddest thing sprayed from a can?
I know everyone’s probably going to say fake hair from a can, and that’s certainly a worthy contender, but as an island boy for most of my life, I have to say spray can snow for Christmas trees. I especially don’t get it for people who live here. Other contenders: spray air (like for cleaning computer stuff) and spray noise.
