Pla-Doh Commitment

Mabel Watson Payne rolled out a flat piece of yellow Pla-Doh and used a cookie-cutter-like device to cut out the two-dimensional shape of a dog. Then she put the leftover yellow Pla-Doh into her blue worm-making mold to produce a small family of worms that went to live on top of the dog cut-out.

With that one surrealistic project completed, the Pla-Doh session was over, and the afternoon moved on to its next phase. This involved spinning in circles until sufficiently dizzy and then letting the elastic-waisted skirt (a Christmas present from me) drop exhausted to the floor.
