I know the term ‘changed my life’ is thrown around a little too liberally there days.
Can a green juice change your life? Doubtful. A new pair of shoes? Maybe.
But a few weeks back I did find an object which changed my life, and I will tell you why.
I’m always cold. ALWAYS.
In summer I still need to wear sleeves to the office, and in winter my fingers and toes could probably snap off with a bit of force.
It’s likely due to poor circulation. Or maybe it’s the fact that air conditioning is sexist. Either way, I’m always friggin’ freezing.
Then, a few week ago, I got to road-test a heated throw rug. A throw that had a baby with an electric blanket. A Pulitzer Prize-worthy invention. (Yes I am aware those awards are actually for journalism, but you can feel my enthusiasm.)
I know heated throw rugs aren’t brand new. But that doesn’t make me any less excited.
The one I’ve been road testing is called The Jason. That’s only moderately awkward for two reasons.
1 – I’ve been using it at work (please refer to sexist air conditioning).
2 – My CEO’s name is Jason.
So on the day I got it when I’m fiddling around with all the buttons, working out what they do and finding my ideal setting (there are eight heat levels, for reference, and level four is toasty perfection in my eyes) I enthusiastically proclaimed “My Jason is amazing. So warm. Makes me not want to leave my desk unless I can take Jason with me. Everyone needs a Jason!”
