Oh Extremely. My other "gratifying sensations" thing I have at home is this (got it for xmas from a friend):
This is the Shit. Literally.

I really didn't think much about it when I first got it but then one day I was stressed and found myself just running my hand back and forth across it without even looking at it. It's an addicting sensation. An amazing sensation. You could even say the sensation is the shit.

I can't help but touch those pillows when I see them in stores. I think I've also seen them called mermaid pillows before.

and they're banned at Sheldon High School I've been told

The obsession with athletic clothes. Kids running around wearing Nike and UA everything regardless of what they are doing. Guys wearing tall socks with shorts and even flip flops.

I confiscate fidget spinners often. I feel like the old teacher with a drawer full of confiscated toys. My kids do NOT use them as a "fidget".

Paid 8$ w/ free shipping for a set of two.... I do agree. They are dumb. But its an excellent distraction from my pain sometimes.

On the one hand, thank you for making me laugh.

On the other hand, screw you, laughing makes my pain worse today.

pretty crazy.

Saw a bunch of teens playing with them in the mall last night.

There was also a large presence of teens in the mall compared to normal and I overheard what they were doing. They were competing against a bunch of other teen groups. 1 point for getting a girl's phone #. 2 points for their snapchat. And 5 points for a selfie with them lol

I had never heard of spinners until my co-workers were talking about their kids using them only at home vs school. I remember Pokémon cards got banned from school when I was in 4th grade- but these seem much more distracting lol.

I had an inflatable chair, too! Not super comfy but dang was it cool.

Kids are dumb. This scoring also seems dumb. Wouldn't getting digits be worth more than a picture?
