A Guaranteed Money Maker

It's cold in my office today. Would someone please invent a pair of gloves that a person could wear and still be able to type?

I know that Lorna in Wonderland would buy a pair. Old Horsetail Snake, are you listening? This could be a way for you to make your pile.

Stop by Wal-Mart and pick up a box of latex gloves (or the latex-free vinyl ones if you're latex sensitive). They should do the trick.

"vweoc"

Vlad wouldn't exsanguinate old chicks.

I have fingerless gloves that I got at REI or someplace like that--great for typing.

Ed Abbey said...

Dang... my fingerless glove idea has already been taken.

Jack - But, people will think I have some sort of toxic disease and I don't think they'll hug my fingertips enough...lack of sensitivity and all that.

(Excellent word verification thingy, by the way. People just don't use the term exsanguinate enough.)

Landismom and Ed - But, it's my fingertips that are cold.

I fear working in a law office with latex gloves on could be construed as a proposition, and may result in a sexual harassment lawsuit. xoxo Poodles

Poodles - Ain't it the truth!

Jack said...

I don't have anything to say, but the verification word was too good to pass on.

"xxtuzja"

"Xerxes' xenophobia typified Unitarian zealots' terrible animosity."


Then I typed it in wrong and it gave me "yeordz." An embarassment of riches!

"You're eating one really delectable zucchini!"

Laurie, I forgot to tell you. Dave moved the computer up from the Fortress of Freezing Crappiness to the back bedroom. It wasn't a competition, but I WON!!!!

Laurie said...

Lorna - Congratulations! It's only going to get colder up there so it was probably in the nick of time.

Jack - Those were good but it's going to take a lot to beat exsanguinate. That was so X-files.

*amfhwbqp* - After many frightening hauntings, we became quite perturbed.

Mmmhmm. I'm TOTALLY with you on that. In fact, I researched it once. LOL The Japanese have typing gloves that you plug into your USB drive and they're heated. Looks like I'm gonna be visiting Japan to get me some of THOSE!

Laurie said...

Jennifer - No way! I am checking into that immediately. You hear that Lorna?

Try counting money in an open window when it is below freezing. Box Office cashiers have prayed for gloves that function with money.



pesip--I think that says enough

Laurie said...

Zina - I never thought of that. Sounds miserable.
