Being a little dramatic, but they are adding additional stress to my life. What about you? What's your opinion? I swear I am asked at least twice a day "Can we go buy silly bands today?" or "Can I go trade silly bands?" or "Where are my silly bands?" There's only one redeeming quality about this crazy fad. They are a great thing to take away for a few days if the minis misbehave. Although then I get the question, "When can I have my silly bands back?" You just can't win!
