I am a subscriber to the magazine Real Simple. I love it - mainly because it has some practical ideas and solutions for both home and fashion stuff. I rarely get it together enough to implement any of the ideas or solutions - but they're nice to read about.
Anyway - they have a monthly section called "New Uses for Old Things" where the contributors come up with, yes - new uses for old things. For example, "wow! this wire hanger can be used as a holder for all my colorful ribbons". It always lists the "original use" and then the "Aha! Use" and "Reward". The ideas are very Martha Stewart usually - but perhaps helpful to certain people.
Little Bitty just brought this section of the magazine to mind. She is very casually pouring her apple juice from her sippy cup into a plastic easter egg, drinking, and repeating. It's funny because the look on her face conveys that she is using the plastic egg exactly how it is supposed to be used. She's not proud or excited of her idea - she's just doing what should be done. And I can so picture the listing in next month's issue of Real Simple...
Original Use: Filling with candy on Easter
Aha! Use: Serving juice or a spritzer to your friends. Just pour dainty amounts in one half of each colorful egg.
Reward: Your friends will be impressed with your colorful serving cups - and it will discreetly limit the amount they consume.
