Libelula Posted July 12, 2005 Share Posted July 12, 2005 So I was at work watching the smaller kids (Grades K-3rd) when some little 2nd grader walked up to me with a problem... A TANGLED SLINKY I said to her, "You gotta be kidding. Just because I'm a grown-up doesn't mean I can do the impossible." She looked at me like "I really don't care, just fix it" and handed it to me. I really didn't know what to do, but I didn't wanna see this girl lose her Slinky. And she was playing with it ALL DAY. So I see it's tangled in 3 places and I fix the first 2. She said "You almost got it!" At that point, I was determined. I would not lose this Slinky. After breaking a bunch of Slinky's as a child, I always wanted to know if they can be fixed. CAN THEY? I continued playing around with it and found out that if you just keep turning the tangled part towards the end, it untangles EASY! So I did that and in a mere 20 minutes... UNTANGLED SLINKY. I was like "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!" Before even giving it to her I was told her "DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO UNTANGLE A SLINKY?!" She said yes, thanked me, and continued to play with her Slinky. I then bragged the rest of the day about how I untangled a Slinky. NOTE: If you have untangled a Slinky before, please share your likely beautiful story.
