I’m feeling defiant. Like I want to throw away anything that might seem conventional in any way, shape, or form. This morning I went in for my regular Americano with soy and proclaimed boldly and proudly: “No soy! I’ll add half and half today!” It was exhilarating. Okay, maybe that isn’t the best example. But we all reach a point where we just get so sick of the routine, don’t we? Those times when you can feel the boxes society puts you in closing in on you and you just want to punch through them and be something new, something evolved. I’m not talking full-scale revolution here, no need to quit your job and fly to India to live on an ashram for the rest of your life. But to find those simple, mundane things in your everyday and shake them up so that they’re fresh and exciting once more.
Just look at the things on offer at hammacher.com. A Killer Whale Submarine. A Laser-Image Chase Toy for your cat. A set of authentic Yankee Stadium Bleacher Seats for use in your home! Think what you will about these things, there’s no denying that they’re different, new, fresh.
