The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
Well, see, I talk with my best friend Alison (I've talked about her before) almost nightly for up to an hour or so. Her husband is so understanding. Since we live 150 miles apart and rarely see each other this is our version of having coffee together each morning (except its at night ... you get it don't you?). Well during our conversations I would sit and hold my phone to my ear. And do nothing. Well I listened, but when you talk with someone every night you don't have to listen with 100% attention 100% of the time. It's not like we're solving world hunger. (Alison, don't get me wrong - I completely listen to your every word).
With my bluetooth headset I can fold laundry, pick up the house, brush the dog, wash dishes (ugh, I hate washing dishes). So I can talk and be productive at the same time. What a concept. I liked it so much I talked Alison into getting one. This way when I'm folding laundry she can be rug hooking or doing her laundry too.
Why did I wait so long before getting one? It's the best thing ever. Except for one little thing. I must have deformed ears. I can't keep the darn headset to stay on my ear for anything. I tilt my head and off it falls. Eeh, nothing is perfect.
What's your favorite new piece of technology?
