This is an Amazon dash button. I know - I had never heard of one until today either.
How it works is that you set it up with Amazon and when you need to order more Macaroni and Cheese you press the button and Amazon delivers it and charges your credit card.
No I don’t know who would use it either. The mind boggles.
But there are lots of dash buttons for lots of things and I am sure soon there will be one for absolutely everything. Houses will be festooned with dash buttons that you can push as you do the housekeeping and cooking.
The dog ate my slippers – where is my slipper dash button?
Damn it does not work! Where is my dash button to order more batteries for dash buttons?
Next thing they will invent shopping list apps that you can put in your iPhone.
Combined with Amazon drones you will know – as your shaking and malnourished hand edges towards the dash button – that once you press it your mac and cheese will be on your doorstep in an hour. All you have to do is heat it up – no – you are so famished and mac and cheese deprived that you will eat it raw.
Or perhaps Amazon will soon have personal chefs who arrive with your mac and cheese – warm it up for you – and feed it to you in tiny and delicate morsels as you recline watching Dr. Phil and wonder why on earth people would go on TV and tell the viewers things that they really should have taken to their grave.
In the meantime.
Georgia had her first (and last) car wash experience yesterday. She was alright until the thingies started flapping on the windows and then she tried to climb onto my head. It is difficult for a 45 pound dog to do this but she gave it her best shot.
I fought hand and paw with her for about a minute until we emerged into the sunlight and she finally settled down – quivering.
This has been added to the list of things that Georgia does not like - along with brooms, buckets, boxes, vacuum cleaners and saucepans.
She is now also very scared of Monika - who weighs 5 pounds. Whenever Georgia chases or barks at Sissi (Monika's daughter) - Monika chases her around the house and whacks her.
Loud yelps follow.
It is a tribute to Georgia's limited mental capacity that she still chases Sissi knowing full well what the outcome will be.
