While strolling the aisles at Academy a couple days ago, I ran across these: pink and blue exploding targets by Sonic Boom. These special use packs contain one pound of binary target explosive (think Tannerite) and one pound of either pink or blue chalk.
The idea is to use the colored targets as the climax for your own unique “gender reveal” party. For those of you who prefer to find out if you’re having a boy or a girl the old fashioned way — when the baby is born — lots of expecting parents now choose to make a production of letting the world know the sex of their still-on-the-way baby. It’s apparently an excuse to have a party. Or something.
Anyway, the idea behind Sonic Boom’s pink and blue explosive is to let you gather your friends and family to announce your baby’s gender with a boom. I’m assuming pink is for girls and blue is for boys, but who knows. That might actually be insensitive.
If you or your spouse have a bun in the oven and want to ballistically tell your loved ones what you’re expecting, you can order yours here. Gender neutral options are also unavailable, of course.
We’ll be reviewing these, but please be patient. It may take a while. I switched my girlfriends birth control with a placebo, so give us a few months to get all our ducks in a row.
