My post today is about the latest fad sweeping the nation. The Fidget Spinner. Do you have one yet? I was one of those people who, when it came out, said that they didn’t need one and would never use one. Well, never say never.
Yes, behold my lovely new toy. I caved into the fad. Mine even glows in the dark. Yeehaw!
I have to admit there is something comforting in watching the little thing spin. The sound of the ball bearings humming as the spinner gyrates between my fingers. The colors a blur as I manipulate it to spin faster and faster.
I think the reason these things are so popular is that they handle a problem that no one thinks they suffer with but in truth they do. Not being able to keep your hands still. Do you remember when you were little and if you were like me, had to go sit for a couple hours every Sunday to church? I would have killed for something like this. My hands still smart from getting whacked with the rolled up church bulletin for fidgeting in my seat.
I can’t think of anyone who can keep their hands still. They are always spinning pencils, pens, or rings on their fingers. Something to keep their hands busy. Brings to mind the Bible verse- Idle hands are the devil’s workshop ~Proverbs 16:27. Well, we no longer need to worry because now we have something to keep our hands from being idle.
As an additional benefit. These spinners are great for people with Autism. My nephew was just introduced to them and he loves them. He is starting to have quite a colorful collection of all different types of the Fidget Spinners. Check them out on Amazon.com They have many different types and designs.
Anyway, hope you are enjoying your day. and if you have a Fidget Spinner, have fun spinning.
This is in no way a promotion of the Fidget Spinner, it is just my own observation.
