Rarely will I see anything in gadget magazines and think, “Holy crap, I need that thing!”
I’m typically pretty damn cheap, and I will look at stuff that appeals to me at first glance, and assure myself I don’t need it.
Oddly enough, this is one of those residual childhood psychological things. When I wanted something as a youngster, my mom made me wait 24 hours before buying it.
At the end of 24 hours, if I still wanted it, I could buy the item … with my own cash. Often, I would bail on the item for something else. And by the time I got around to buying anything, I would lose interest in all of the items.
Why do I go on these tangents?
But I really think I could use this doohickie you stick into a lemon or lime to spray your food with its juices. The thing is called “Stem” and you can see more about the product here.
I like the idea of having a spray bottle for olive oil, too. Sometimes I don’t need to drizzle it on things. I need it to spray.
So if you’re looking for mid-January gifts for yours truly, these are the things I would like.
