Do YOU wear silly bands???

I'm looking down at my wrists and realize that I am wearing about 5 silly bands.   The only reason I do is b/c my kids get a kick out of seeing me wear them.  But I wonder, what the heck is the big deal with them?  I mean, they are so popular around here.  I see kids have hundreds of them clipped to their belt loop or up and down their arms.  I just don't get it.  Second, I wonder if there are any other moms out there who wear them too.  If no, what do you think when you see other moms like me wearing them?

I don't know, I'm just bored and curious I guess.

I don't wear them.  Honestly. I have never paid attention to others wearing.  After you mentioning it, I will probably be looking now.

I wear them too...my dd gets a huge kick out of me wearing them...she even picks out a few that would look good with my outfit.  I'm a softie, so, I'll wear them for her :)

I don't wear them. They are big here too, but I think my kids may be too old for them, they are 12 and 13 and don't have any. They've never asked for any either.

SO funny...I teach middle school and they all wear them....I have a 3 year old and she has some....all her cousins of every age in between wear them, and then some friends of mine say they have seen 20-somethings out at bars wearing them...I don't get it!!!  Some of them are even too small for my 3 year old's wrist, depending on the shape, and I have seen some of my middle school kids have them on so tight or twisted around their fingers that they are purple....I am waiting to hear news report of someone losing a finger or something worse...UGH....
