A post of profound importance.

Can you make a wicked paper airplane?

Is the ability to make a fantastic paper airplane a sign of a (slightly) mis-spent youth?

Not only is this a post of profound importance, my answer to your question is also profound. The ability to make a fantastic paper airplane is a sign of having experienced a glorious youth – one of creativity and fun!

(having said that, my youth did not include creativity of the crafty kind – my paper airplanes are just ho-hum - but it was fun...)

Hmm, does this mean you have the secret to awesome paper plane making? Do tell!

Are you into the paper airplane championship mode?
Some awesome records set recently but I didn't see any girls in any of this - do something about it, please!!! GM

Nope, not my department. Let me know when you want advice about eraser tag.

Is the comment button back yet? It looks okay from this end, but who knows?

Sorry about that, whatever it was.

My paper airplanes suck monkey toes. I can, however, make a great chain out of Wrigley chewing gum wrappers.

Beth, I whole-heartedly agree...my paper airplanes are mediocre too, though the man can make some wicked ones.

Kate, from looking at my students, I would say it involves a fine sharp point tightened up with a good quantity of spit.

GM, Didn't even know it existed! My students desperately needed a break so we spent the last fifteen minutes of class outside doing paper airplane races....sunny spring days are sometimes tough....they've been in school for 7 and a half hours, plus an hour and a half of English on a beautiful spring day....
Poor things.

JG, It's been gone for two days, maybe it is my computer....you have got to tell me about eraser tag though...

Hula, two great images in one comment...I have a fabulous image of a paper airplane sucking monkey's toes....and how do you make a chain from Wrigley chewing gum wrappers???

In which case I was a very good girl - my paper airplanes nosedive within inches of takeoff

Helen....I am going to have to practice too, mine are pathetic.
