We dug out what used to be a good tablecloth before it was covered with tie dyed jellyfish (story too old, long and silly), and industriously turned them into batiked bacteria. At least we hope we have; won’t know if the wax will resist the new dye successfully until we try. And even then, how in the world am I to get the wax out? Still, one problem at a time … first I have to think of how to get the dye in. It’s a very big tablecloth.
Before any sensible reader wonders, ‘why bacteria on a tablecloth?’ the answer is that they are commensal. And to anyone who merely wonders ‘why??’ I have to say that as a family pastime it was much more fun than Monopoly.
