V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #49: gadget

The first time Ric cooked dinner for me, he pulled out a tall, slender stainless steel pot with a glass lid and a basket inside. I’d never seen anything like it.

“What is that?”

“An asparagus pot!”

I haven’t stopped teasing him about it, being the pragmatic woman that I am.

I would soon discover that Ric is the king of gadgets.

“What’s that for?” is a common query from me when he comes home with new purchases. I don’t see the need for many of his ‘toys’, but that’s just my conditioning. I’m a ‘make-do’ person.

Then, the other morning I wanted to do something outside, but wasn’t sure how cold it was. Then I remembered that Ric has a device that tells the temperature, inside and outside – front and back. This was useful.

It got me to thinking: what other devices would make my life easier?

So, I thought I’d shake things up here, and offer something completely different. Tell (or show) me about those gadgets in your life, or better yet, put on your creative caps and invent something new.

To participate, create a post on your own site (or leave a note in the comments), and link back here.

Looking forward to your responses.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
