There are many things that I wish were never invented, and I mentioned eight of these in last Tuesday’s post, but there are also many things that I wish were invented.
If you’re one of those clever people who can just make stuff and the stuff actually works, then here’s my wishlist for Christmas:
1. An ipad appliaction that scans my pantry and fridge and tells me what I can make for dinner, and of course prints out the recipe for me. It would be handy if it could also decide what I need to buy for next week, send the list to Woollies and my food magically appeared in a delivery.
2. An automatic photo editor. I want to plug my camera into my computer, then I want all my photo’s to download (as they do…), edit, crop and spin themselves right way around and then insert themselves into an online photobook that I can print off at the end of each year. It’s possible…or it might be by the time I’m 60.
3. I seriously need a stroller stabiliser so when I’m strolling around the shops, buy too much stuff and it outweighs Miss Princess, that she doesn’t end up flat on her back looking up at the ceiling. It’s happened…a few too many times to admit to in public. So I need a little weight thingy that senses the stroller is getting too heavy in the back and adjusts the weight accordingly, avoiding much embarrassment for me and a sudden shock for Miss Princess.
4. Can someone PLEASE invent a memory jogger. You know, for those moments when you’re mid sentence and suddenly can’t remember the point of your story, or when you walk to the fridge to get something out and then stare blankly at the shelves having absolutely no clue what on earth it was you were getting. Maybe a little electrical zap in the brain could help? No?!
5. Dishwashers that actually dry Tupperware. Now there’s a novel idea!
6. A child reminder. Not to remind you that you have a child, let’s face it they’re hard to forget, but something that gives a little zap (harmless…of course….*insert evil laugh*) for your child if they try to leave their classroom in the afternoon without bringing home their water bottle, lunchbox, jacket and homework. Master Sporty’s hair would be standing up on end by the end of every week.
7. Automatic earmuffs, for those times when your whingey, whiney three-year-old (I’m looking at you Miss Princess) starts whingeing and whining. These awesome earmuffs appear out of nowhere and attach themselves with great accuracy and speed to your ears. “You want what, Miss Princess, I can’t hear you?”
8. The ability to become invisible. I’m sure many scientists have been working on this for thousands of years but come on already. Surely someone out there can make some spray that turns you invisible, I’ve seen it on tv, someone is holding out on us mum’s that just want to go to the toilet in peace. It would be perfect! I need to wee, whip out the spray, voila I get to go to the toilet in peace. It would sell like hotcakes.
Is there something you want invented to make your life easier?
P.S. If you do invent one of my most wanted inventions then I want royalties and the right to have one for free. That’s all
