    Middle DS just came running up and said "Mom, my aglet is gone!" :scared1:

    I don't know if my budget can afford to replace it. :rotfl2::lmao:

    Of course, I don't know whether to be worried or not that he actually knows what an aglet is....:rotfl2:

    As soon as I read this, I immediately thought that your DS must be 10 years old. My DD10 said the same thing a couple of weeks ago and I had to do a double take to remember what she was talking about! :rotfl2:

    Yesssss...I finally meet another person who actually knows what an aglet is. That word was on my ACTs 20+ years ago. Whenever I use it, people look at me like...huh? And, yes, I don't think it will be a budget buster for you.:lmao: Very funny that your DS knows what it means. For those reading this who are puzzled, aglets are the little plastic ends on your shoe laces that make lacing your shoes easy. If you are without your aglets, you will spend a LONG time lacing up!

    I know what one was, but I thought there must be a new meaning. Good to know I am not out of the loop.

    At work we fix missing aglets by wrapping the end scotch tape and then dip it in clear nailpolish to dry.

    My DS is almost 17, and too old for Phineas and Ferb. Therefore, he likely will never know what an aglet is I suppose. How funny this word is now apparently "in" amoungst the tween set. I can't recall where I learned it, but I did get it correct on my ACTs.

    They also talked about it on an older episode of Suite Life of Zack and Cody.. maybe about 5-6 years ago.

    DD's school wrote a book a couple months ago called The Magic Aglet. It is about little things that do big jobs basically.
