It’s Must Have Monday when I’ll reveal some of my favorite products on the planet…and since now I am living in less than 700 square feet with two dogs, two cats, and one Frank, an item has to be pretty cool to make it into our space. This particular prize came to me for my birthday this past summer.
Now, in the past, I have gotten some snazzy gifts including:
An Etch-a-Sketch portrait of my favorite childhood photo.
A cooking class on how to make salads…seems a little oxymoronic, but it was great.
My complete astrological chart.
A donkey…and not just any donkey, but a retired basketball playing donkey.
But my absolute favorite is the tool set that Frank bought me when I turned 45. It wasn’t one of those condescending pink ones specifically made for women that contain little more than a worthless miniature hammer, dainty Phillips screwdriver, and flimsy tape measure. Nothing is more annoying than when halfway through the job, your tape measure goes all limp and worhless…except perhaps when a penis does it. This was a real three drawer Kobalt tool chest filled with goodies. I'll be honest...I don't even know what some of the tools are for. But, I plan to find out. I vow, within the next year, to use everything in those drawers.
I may not be able to build an actual house, but I bet I could build one hell of a birdhouse.The sharp scissors will come in handy if I temporarily lose my mind again and decide I need to cut bangs. And, I can use the level to hang some art, even though it’s a little difficult to use on a rocking boat. And, the box cutter will serve as a great weapon if I ever need to defend myself against Burgin’s criminal element. And I can use my channel locks and screw to open a wine bottle. And, one day, I am going to ratchet the hell out of whatever it is you ratchet. In my book, a Kobalt portable tool chest is a Must Have.
