...it's a magic wand.
We found it just laying there on the grass at the park. Obviously it's previous owner didn't realize it's power and carelessly discarded it as if it were just a...stick.
Here's why we KNOW its magical.
At the park last weekend, A-girl ate it on the sidewalk.
Tears. Lots of tears.
And then we waved the wand over the owchie, and it didn't hurt anymore.
A few days ago, I was getting my purse from the backseat of the car, and the magic wand fell out.
I looked at it, lying there on the street, and thought, "If I just left this here, I wonder if the next person who found it would know that it's not just a stick."
Thankfully I decided to not find out, and put the magic wand back in the car. Later on that evening, someone bummed their head, and, man, did that magic wand come in handy.
