Benjamin just unwrapped a chemistry set from my mom, whom I will note lives in a different state...

(Actually he is being meticulously cautious about it, and very carefully following the safety instructions. He wouldn't even let his little brother in the room without safety goggles.)

I don't know if that's the best present ever for him or the scariest.

Hee! That sounds like an awesome gift. Mad scientist at work!

Over here, I'm playing with my new toy: a battery-powered eraser. I've just finished the second of two Gandalf portraits. Just wail til Arisia.

The past couple of decades, a 'chemistry set' has borne very little resemblance to those I grew up with. Poisons, strong dyes, oxidizers and even combustible substances are pretty much absent.

He can be the poster child for "Responsible Mad Science". ☺

Ask [livejournal.com profile] trowa_barton sometime about when he had one of those as a kid, probably around the same age. :)

I got a kit as a kid; very few of the experiments worked. My two youngest sisters and I used it together, and we hunted for coins in the sofa, imagining we could send away for more chemicals and equipment from the catalog.
