Remember how last year Jeremy got a cool stocking stuffer? It was a ReadyWrench…
And remember how he said that it wasn’t a cheesy tool?
And how I said that there was nothing wrong with being married to a cheesy tool…remember?
Well, this year, the fine folks at Black n Decker sent us the upgraded version (for free!) so that we could do a compare/contrast/review…it was the uncheesiest untooliest tool of them all….the Ratcheting ReadyWrench.
Dude. If you can’t remember anything else from this, I just want you to remember that if you have a leftover home improvement store gift card…or a bit of Christmas money…or if your Dad’s wallet just happens to be sitting unguarded, that you want to make your way to the Ratcheting ReadyWrench aisle and get one of these. (By the way, I do not endorse stealing your parent’s money…but if you happen to use Pop’s card instead of yours, he does get the rights to borrow this tool and for that, he will thank you.)
And this year, we put this sucker to the test…we gave it to my brother to see if he (being the wrench-weilding type) would give us the lowdown.
What does Tim do that makes him an expert ratcheting-wrench-judger? You see that trailer behind his truck? Yeah…he uses wrenches all day every day as he works with cars. Yeah…he’s one of those things-with-engine-lovahs. I don’t get it but whatever. He doesn’t understand ceramic birds…it’s amazing that we are of the same bloodline. And whenever I say ‘bloodline’ I think of being a vampire…and then I think of Edward Cullen….not the actor who plays Edward…my imaginary version of Edward…which is actually Jeremy with sparkling glitter-skin and a black trenchcoat.
Anyhoo…Tim, being a man of very few words…said the following of the Ratcheting Readywrench…”very cool”.
Did you catch that? Yeah…two TWO words! I don’t think he said that much when I told him I was pregnant with his future nephew.
And then he went on (!!!!)….he liked “the weight of it” (which I don’t really get) and how the socket sizes were colorcoded…AND how it was all-in-one (hello convenience!)….wrench and socket set. And then he ran off to tinker with it….which by the way is very different than tinkling with it 🙂
And Edward, err….I mean, Jeremy told me that the ratcheting action made it super easy to use. And that it was perfect for those folks who don’t need an entire socket set…just the standard 16 sizes.
So why am I telling you all this?
