Plain Silly or Plain Remarkable?
At Justin's school silly bands are the "in" thing right now. It's not just his school, however, as college students are even wearing them.
The question is why are they so cool?
#1 They are cheap so everyone can afford them
#2 They are creative and shaped in all kinds of things; cartoon characters, ballet dancers, boats, etc.
#3 They are universal so everyone can wear them
What is NOT silly is that kids as young as Justin's age are giving them to other students without expecting anything in return. If we continue the culture of just feeling good about making someone else happy then I think it may be the best invention ever.
Excluding In N Out Burger of course,
