While in school (that is high school), some friends and I entered the “Mr. Hillcrest” contest. Part of the contest was to do a one minute monolog relating to a particular word we were given. When it came to me the word was paperclip. What a disaster. I was never one for being put on the spot. My friend Leon Uriarte was given the word ‘silly putty‘. It was one of the most hilarious things I had ever heard. The line I will remember for the rest of my life was “I love silly puddy”.
This little experiment was deemed the “Silly Putty Physics Experiment”.
