  2. A few of them I had heard before... very interesting though.
    I've listened to Ally talk about dust coming from dead skin since she took biology last year. It's a joke in our house now... "Mom, look at all the dead skin on the bookshelf!"
    "Ally, look at all your dead skin on the ceiling fan!" Ha ha. I guess we're easily amused. *Ü*
