Something Fun To Do With Your Hands

It's the little things.

Yes, I can be awe struck by large, beautifully designed buildings, like the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.  Or, appreciate the stunning blend of cables and steel that create the St. Johns Bridge in Portland, OR (I'm lucky to have it in my backyard ;-> ).  The sheer mass of these structures catch my eye and make me say 'Wow'. 

But there's a functioning design that made me so happy, and even embarrassed my kids a little bit with my giddiness.  Have you checked out the Dyson air blade hand dryer at Costco?  (Have I embarrassed myself by sharing how much fun I think these are?)

I feel like Tom Hanks in "Big" when he starts jumping on the big piano.  If there's any way to make drying your hands fun Dyson has found it.  After washing my hands I was looking for the hand dryer and saw, what I first thought, was some kind of electronic garbage can hanging on the wall.  I stood over it for a while and saw the illustration for a hand.  Looked around some more and saw "airblade hand dryer".  Um, ok, I'm going in.

You put your hands into the machine and blasts of warm air whip the water right off!  You slowly pull your hands up and out, then naturally check your hands to see if they're really dry.  (They are.)  Other visitors came over to see what was going on and started playing with it too.  I was so happy I wasn't the only one who likes interesting "toys".

Yep, for me, it's the little things.
