Weirdest puck ever?/Stickhandling games/tips

Okay so yesterday I needed something to stickhandle and couldn't find a roller puck for my living room (hardwood floor) or a ball, so I used an almost full and sealed bottle of aspirin.

You'd be amazed at how those little pill bottles slide on wood floor. And if you properly roll your wrists it can go back and forth straight, but when you're sloppy it slides but it spins in a circle. It's also surprisingly easy to control, if you don't believe me try it on any smooth surface like wood or linoleum,

Anyway, what are some of the weird things you have ever used as a puck to stickhandle or shoot? I like to shoot small rocks in my driveway sometimes, I once found myself near the woods with some friends and I just pick up rocks and start bouncing them on my stick. Sometimes I try to catch my shoe, or use a ping pong ball to bounce off the wall and keep it away from the cat....

Also, cats are very good at hockey and make usefull stickhandling practice partners when you are bored, you can pass a small ball to them or bounce it around the room to practice your hand eye and keep it away from them
