Oh, dear. I bought the thing that lets you make hardboiled eggs without the shells.

It seemed like such a good idea at the time..but now I realize..WHY would you even want to do that?

But I am endlessly fascinated by the reality that if you tell someone they want something--over and over--eventually they will begin to believe it's true. Weird.

Oh, dear. You're supposed to wear DIFFERENT clothes?


The craziest thing I bought wasn't on a commercial. It looked like the end of a banana with a clip kinda thing on it. Theoretically, you'd use it to keep half a banana fresh. I HEAR YOU GROANING. Yes, I was that stupid. My husband will never let me forget. :)

I'm with you on the DVR, Kris. Elementary is the only show on network TV I watch, so fortunately very few hyper-sell commercials. A good thing since I'm such a sucker for useless plastic gizmos. :)


Hank, I have noticed a lot of those products do seem to be geared to different ways to cook eggs. People must be unhappy with their eggs.


Mary, they really can make anything seem like a reasonable product, even a banana clip. I hope you found another use for it.


I bought those blue balls for my dryer too, but I still use a fabric softener sheet.
And my cocker spaniel was not fond of fetch either. After one or two throws she would look up at me and say - I'm done, YOU go get it.
But my friends cocker was addicted to fetch and would never stop. You had to hide the ball from her.
Different strokes, as they say.


Karen, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who tried those blue balls to replace dryer sheets. Believe me, you dodged a bullet with your dog. Having had a fetcher, although not a cocker-fetcher, I have to confirm what your friends reported. Dogs who love fetch are so addicted, they don't want it to ever stop. We used to have to hide anything she could play fetch with when we were too tired to play.
