Almost as good as the Smitten

What other product comes with these instructions?

1. Access the inconspicuous valve.
2. Gently bite the base and inflate in less than a breath.
3. Zzz...Zzz...Zzz...

Can you guess? Ok, I'll just tell you: the Pillow Tie. I came across this on someone elses blog and had to share it with you guys!

Guys, would you wear one? If you check out the website you'll see that they come in tons of colors and styles and they look like real ties. Until inflated, that is...

I don't know about you, but it seems like the perfect gift! Men are impossible to shop for. And Christmas is just around the corner. Would any of you guys be disappointed to receive one as a gift? I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed that there isn't an inflatable piece of clothing for women. I think an inflatable scarf would be awesome.

Hmm.... I just thought about how odd that might look. But that doesn't mean I don't want one. Don't you?

It is the perfect gift for the man who has everything. Women thought they had the clothing market sewn up. Now men get inflatable clothes. Who knew?

I'm getting a little sleepy just thinking about snoozing on my inflatable pillow scarf.

You totally stole that from TAMN! Ryan would die before he would ever wear one of those.

"Because most functions that require a tie...deserve to be slept through"
I love it! Ingenious!
I'm thinking an inflatable watch. You push a button and out pops a pillow...kind of like those emergecy pontoons...you know...but smaller...and comfy-er.

I have got to get one of these for my dad who in is a little bit older age...has begun to nap often.

Yeah, Melissa, I totally got it from Tamn! Since most of my friends don't read her blog, I thought it had to be shared. It's just too good.

Genius!! Maybe I'll try to pull off the whole girl-wearing-a-tie look again...

I'd like to see it inflate automatically, like Heather's pontoon pillow. You could trigger it with a button in the tip of the tie. A couple of changes, and instead of inflating the section below the knot, the loop around the neck would expand, cutting off blood to the wearer's brain.

Imagine that self-important guy from administration delivering you personal instruction on the appropriate procedure for reusing paper clips. As he hovers over your desk, breathing stale coffee fumes in your face, his tie dangles just above your fingers.

One little squeeze, and peace for the rest of the morning.

Heather said...

Oh mark,thanks for the laugh.

I love that the website shows a guy sleeping in the middle of a cross walk like the tie is so amazing you just couldn't wait till you got somewhere else to fall asleep. And they show a guy in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by sharks, using his tie as a flotation device.
