Next time you’re at a party or a dinner or somewhere that there’s a lot of food and a lot of guests, and you see a beautifully put-together plate of food, say “Ooh – delectible!” and then quickly scan the crowd to see who reacts. That person will understand your desire for Oodlectibles, and perhaps you’ll have made a new friend for life.
I just now bought all the new ones. The ones that are themed with games that are played during the winter. They’re beautifully designed and this may even help me to remember to watch the bobsleigh races this year. For once.
And the Team USA Oodlectible may actually pay for itself, provided the USA does well! To quote from the 2014 Team USA Oodlectible page:
You’ll score 100 Oodles and 1,000 Tokens for every Team USA Point.
~Score 3 Team USA Points for every 1st place medal.
~Score 2 Team USA Points for every 2nd place medal.
~Score 1 Team USA Points for every 3rd place medal.
So, not to place any more pressure on our athletes, but – come on, guys, I’m invested now. Let’s win these games!
I was also taken with the beautiful figure skating Oodlectible. It’s a tribute to the elegance of figure skating as a whole. If I were only able to watch one event, it would be tough to decide, but I’d probably go with figure skating because it’s truly a balance of athletics, grace and emotion. Where many of the sports get the adrenaline pumping, figure skating has that, plus awe. And sometimes they play good music.
That’s not to say I won’t enjoy the other sports. Just looking at the upcoming skiing and snowboarding Oodlectibles, I suddenly get the desire to hit the slopes.
Curling? Well, maybe this year I’ll jump on the bandwagon!
