The other day I was talking with a mate about bikes. While the weather’s been in a good mood – not too hot, not too wet, etc – I’ve been cycling between meetings. I should clarify by saying I cycle between sites. Apparently, it’s frowned upon to pop a wheelie as you hit the corridor. It startles some of the sleeping staff. 🙂
So, H said that being a fairly keen commuter cyclist, that he’s – and to use his own words – a bit of a tool tart. That’s not a phrase I’d heard before, and it made me chuckle. My Dad would probably use the words Gadget Monster, but that has different and possibly Godzilla style connotations. 🙂 Tools, meh. But shoes or the ideal mascara? Now you’re talking!
I’ll leave you to generate your own alliteration to cover those words. 🙂
But, before I sign off, riddle me this: do we all have a thing we like to collect? I know not everyone is defined by material gubbins, but is it the gadget or the experience that we’re chasing?
