From the title alone, you are probably wondering "Why?" So, I probably should explain myself...
A while back I found myself visiting the hospital on a semi-regular basis. As I would sit in the hospital staring at the wall in boredom and waiting for the doctor to come back, I got to thinking about how I could share the joy of my trips with my friends and family. Normally, when you go somewhere, you bring back souvenirs like T-shirts... or key chains... or coffee mugs... or my personal favorite - the pinnacle of uselessness and oddity - the snow globe.
When this notion crossed my mind, it became painfully obvious to me that it would be ideal if I could bring back a snow globe for my loved ones as a keepsake from my hospital trip. But what would a snow globe from a hospital look like? Well, it would need to have a medical scene inside - that is for certain. It would obviously need snow. It would need to be in some sort of globe and - at that - what sort of globe is there to be found in a hospital? Well, urine collection cups, of course. and, if you are already going that far, you might as well go all the way and fill it with urine. Hence, the idea for a urine snow globe was born.
Although, fortunately, I go to the hospital far less these days, the idea of making a medical-themed urine snow globe has stuck in the back of my mind. I knew that sooner or later this had to be made simply to get it out my system. And so, I finally got around to making this. I see this as a great way for people to commemorate any notable illness (physical or mental).
