642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 29

This one is obviously inspired by my travels this week.  Leave your answers below! 🙂

“What would you buy from the SkyMall catalog? Why?”

I’m actually looking at a SkyMall catalog right now and my goodness, there are so many things that I would totally buy from SkyMall.  Some are “practical,” some are blatantly ridiculous.  I have to say, the stuff in the catalog is a lot tamer than the multitudes of amazing that you can find on SkyMall.com.  But I did steal a SkyMall from my flight last Tuesday for the purpose of doing it old school, so that’s what I’m basing my selection off of.

First off, I kind of feel like I need to draw attention to this:


It’s called the Travel Tank Top.  It strikes me a little bit odd that something that hides items in pockets that are on the side of your body (where it’s arguably undetected by the x-ray scanners) is probably maybe not okay particularly when the item’s description starts out with “Keep your valuables out of sight and out of harm’s way.  Compression Security t-shirts…”

ANYWAY.  I just thought that was an interesting item to sell.  What I would pick if I could get one thing out of the entire magazine is the Sogno DreamWave by Inada’s World’s Best Massage Chair:

sogno-dreamwave-worldsbestmassagechairWhy?  BECAUSE LOOK AT IT!  It’s like the experience of getting a pedicure without anyone actually touching your feet.  Who needs ZzzQuil when you can have a glass of wine and get massaged from head to toe?  I know, I know.  Lame choice, but I still would rock that shit every night.  I almost went with the Floating Desk with Storage, because I would also totally rock it (think of how easy it would be to vacuum under that!!!), but at the end of the day, this one edges that out.

And here’s a little bonus one for you, because let’s face it, I would also use this pretty much daily as well:



Think of how great the selfies could be (that’s what she said) with the iStabilizer Monopod.  Aaah, I want that.  I wouldn’t even have shame when people looked at me funny in restaurants while using it…

What would you get from SkyMall?  Leave your answers (and links if you want) below in the comments.
