    Man- that's awesome! I'm going to call glitter- herpes from now on. I hate that stuff! Even when I use it- it goes everywhere!
    You are going to be finding glitter everywhere for YEARS!!
    The kicker is… that looks like it was a big, expensive set of glitter. That sucks.

      We've been calling glitter “Raver Scabies” ever since the late nineties when Raves and Body glitter made a presence in our shared house.

    ugh! that’s awful. You’ll be finding that when they’re in college! I bet if you go on line there are some clever clean up suggestions. You are very brave. Be strong 🙂

    Ah, yes, the “glitter of craft supplies” is one of my favorite Demetri Martin skits of all time, especially he has such a deadpan manner. ^_^

    Are you sure a few strippers didn't break in and wrestle on your couch? Then maybe your children tried to break them up and that's how they got the “stripper dust” on themselves. In our house that stuff is called “Stripper Dust” because every “adult entertainer” i've ever come across has always been covered in that stuff.

    Glitter does get everywhere, even if you aren't a little kid.
