The Big Lie

Did I mention my flexihose? I bought it last week. It crossed my mind that if this hose were so good why were the stores still selling the conventional, more expensive varieties, and the expensive, bulky hose carriers. When I tried out the new hose the other day I learned why. It has to be completely unrolled, straight, before the water is turned on. Or else kink city, worse than any kinks I have ever gotten in a conventional hose. The sprayer attachment has a small reservoir for soap or herbicide but no way to turn that part on or off. If you put stuff in there and use the sprayer you had better use it until it's all used up. It doesn't roll up particularly easily, either. I still have to work on it to bring it back in line.

I was just starting to use the hose when Mike drove up Friday. I laughed about it. The Big Lie, I said, the advertising for the product is for the very qualities that it does not have.

So I figure I'll get all that crap together and bring it back to the store. I bought it in Santa Maria, unfortunately, so I have been thinking of what else I might want to do while I am down there. I have had enough bread today, so no pretzel. But maybe paint. I am thinking of just painting my bedroom, just to see how it looks, if my instincts are okay.
