gadget geek

You might not know this, but I married a gadget geek. OK, geek might not be the exact term, but it was a nice alliteration, and that should count for something.

It was already dark when I got home from work last night. There was an empty packing box by the door, so I knew something had been delivered. I don’t always remember in the two days since I ordered something what I ordered.

It was this. It’s a gadget, no denying. Heavier than it looks. And Mr. Macy was ecstatic and eager to demonstrate its powers.

I’ll go out on a limb here. I’m going to say that you have never in your life seen a dimmer like this one. I wish now I had taken video instead of this still pic so you could actually experience the way this dimmer dimmed that lamp. It was nothing short of astonishing.

A video would also surely have captured my dear man in full laughter mode. It felt so good to hear him laugh. We laughed about buying one of these for each room in the house, about how sure we are that all of our kids need one in their Christmas stocking. And even if it doesn’t work to the purpose for which it was purchased, we were NOT sending it back!

How many manly dimmer switches do you have at your house?
