Oh happy news! I’ve decided to start posting product reviews for the enjoyment of all three of my readers. I’ll bet you’re clapping your hands and jumping up and down with joy at the prospect.
Seriously. You can learn a lot from a product review. Perhaps I should explain what that is. Well, it’s where you have a panel of people get together to discuss the merits of an item, the downsides, the potential problems, associated costs et cetera. Usually you have to pay a consultant a fee (not cheap) to tell you in painful excrutiating detail, everything that’s wrong with your product. While it’s in your best interests to do so, it’s not exactly a jolly time. It’s no fun to watch other people rip your dream idea to shreds. It doesn’t have to be that ugly and it’s usually not, I’m exaggerating. But still, you need to learn how to develop a critical eye and the best way to do that is do observe someone else’s product review. So that’s what I’ll be doing.
I’ll be reviewing items that I’ve made because I doubt anybody’s going to jump up and volunteer their products for public execution. I don’t care, I’ve made a career of making a fool of myself so I’m used to it. The first style I’ll do is style #12658 which is a coat I made for a friend of mine. And yeah, you may safely surmise I’m such a style-number nut-job that I even issue numbers for things I make for myself.
Did you get your yahoo ice cream? I thought that was really cool; that was a really neat thing to do for your customers. The boy and I went to Baskin-Robbins; he was kind of embarrassed -he looks like a mummy– but couldn’t pass up the free ice cream. The boy -admitedly PDD-NOS with high pain tolerance- scrubbed his face so hard, he burnt his skin raw. He’s been out of school two days this week. And in case you wonder, I’ve called him ‘the boy’ for years because calling him ‘my son’ doesn’t feel honest. He’s not my property; he’s his own boy and always has been. His name is Mike and officially, I am not allowed to talk about him, lol.
