Tip of the Week: Outside the Lines
Posted on 3/17/2008 by Kim
This week’s Escape Plan challenge (aka our Tip of the Week) is #24: Outside the Lines. Figure out a way to add some color to your day in a new, unusual, or wacky way.
Color just makes things more fun. Whether it’s a colorful necktie, hat, fun socks or shoe laces, it proves to be an easy way to add some fun to your day. I know Dr. Seuss would back me up on this one.
If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good. -Dr. Seuss
Speaking of Seuss, when Jason originally did this challenge for the Escape Plan, he took a page out of Seuss’ book (Not literally- that would be sacreligious). In an attempt to have some fun with the rhymes, like the master, here’s what happened…
He dug deep in the cupboard, and soon he found
a small box of food colors..
red, yellow, and blue- but no brown.
As he stirred and he stirred, the eggs started to scramble.
He added some green. Yes, this was quite the gamble.
… Okay, that was fun! Jason shared that eating green eggs proved to be like stepping into a time machine.
It’s apparent that the suits at the restaurant chain, IHOP, are quite the Adultitis-free group. Have you seen their recent promotion, tying into the recently released Dr. Seuss movie, “Horton Hears a Who!“? For a limited time (until April 20th), they’ve added four uniquely awesome Seuss-like menu items. If you’d like a simple and yummy way to accomplish this week’s challenge, find the nearest IHOP.
You can choose from the following… (the descriptions even rhyme).
Who-Cakes: (Named after the “Whos” who live on a speck of dust.) Who-ville’s Who-cakes with lots and lots of surprises. Shortcake pancakes of all shapes and sizes. Real boysenberry and blueberry glaze on top. With rainbow chocolate chips and a pink lollipop.
Beezlenut Splash: Springing up from the jungle of Nool. Lemon-lime soda- refreshing and cool. With Cherry and Berry Blue Jello-O – what fun! Slurping up the colors one by one!
The Mayor’s Breakfast: Green Eggs and ham are really the nicest. Scrambled with spinach and just the right spices. Served with hash browns and a choice of Who-Cakes. Or IHOP’S original Buttermilk pancakes.
Jo-jo’s Breakfast: Since a person is a person, no matter how small. A stack of Who-Cakes, but not quite as tall. A scrambled green egg, and ham strip (just one.) A smaller serving for you to join in the fun!
Have fun coloring your week! Leave a comment on the Escape Plan blog to share with us how color brought a smile to your face this week.
