HONEY, what did you step in?! Look at your shoe imprints, you've undoubtedly stepped in something that is mucilaginous and your shoe is picking up bits of grass and gunk!! Now it's being tracked all over MY CLEAN FLOOR!

here's one...
Sphygmomanometer. Try to guess what it is without looking it up!
I'm off to a picnic and would like to see your guesses when I get back!

Does anyone remember Mucilage (sp)? It was a glue in a brown glass bottle with a rubber tip that had a slit in it. I remember using it in school, so it wasn't a "serious" glue. I still remember the smell. Well, anyway, now I know where the name came from. Only took about 40+ years. Thanks :D
