Immediately after my heart transplant, for some unexplained reason, I got hung up on INFOMERCIALS. I was also hung up on HGTV, but that will be another post.
You’ve seen them on TV. Those almost annoying 30 minute, non-stop commercials for a product that “you just have to have”. It was a good thing my family took all my valuables, credit and debit cards or I would have spent a fortune.
This obsession started after I got out of ICU and was on the nursing floor. I had some issues sleeping at night and would find myself totally engrossed in these “must have” products in the middle of the night. Number one on my list was the “Tobi Ironing System” (see pic) for my wife, who happens to love to iron clothes. I was sure she would love this gadget, as it would save her untold hours. When I showed her the item online after I was back home and recuperating, she just laughed and said, “Dear, I’ll just keep my old steam iron”
This fascination with these commercials lasted probably a month or so after I returned home. I took notes, I investigated, I comparison shopped.
Now, almost 2-1/2 years later, I can still remember the top ones that I just had to have.
#1 ~ The Tobi Ironing System
#2 ~ Nuwave Infrared Cooking System
#3 ~ A “Guaranteed” Stocks & Bonds Picking System
#4 ~ An Outdoor grass & weed trimmer.
#5 ~ Geaorge Foreman Grilling Machine
A side note is that as hooked as I was, I never made the call and ordered ANYTHING. I think it was just another part of my recovery.
