This thing, which sort of looks like a snowshoe, or maybe a dog sled for chihuahuas, has been in the slush cabinet for more than a year now, awkwardly butting against the pile of CDs and occasionally, to my frustration, sending them scattering. I had really come to hate it, not that I knew what it was. But the other day, in the great 2008 spirit of understanding our enemies so that we may one day love them, I hauled it out and gave it a little attention. (A diagram explaining how to use it is helpfully woven into its straps.) And damned if it didn’t feel pretty good to stretch out those pitifully coiled hammies of mine! Better still, I mentioned it to my squirrelfriend, who can run for freaking ever, and she was all, “Hell yeah! Bring that thing home!”
My hope is that we may see redsquirrel’s more thorough product review in the comments section sometime soon.
