First of all, this product does not come with batteries.... Just thought you should know....
Secondly! Details matter. Writers are told this all the time: get the facts, the details, the little things about your character, your setting, your plot right, lest your reader be thrown into a mild attack of panic, should he happen to pick up on your error. Panic could lead to heart palpitations, which could lead to cold sweats, or gasp,...lawsuits!--none of which are pretty (remember James Frey's A MILLION LITTLE PIECES?--superbly written, btw, just a bit murky on facts). Which is why I feel inclined to share the following warning--which doesn't have anything to do with writing.
It has to do with baking. Another hobby of mine where details matter.
Attention Bakers! Both New and Experienced! If you happen to be a user of Blue Bonnet sticks of margarine, then BEWARE! Santa's cookies are at risk! As well as any other goody you happen to be baking for the holidays. Because after months of cafeful observation and monitoring, I have come to the undisputable conclusion that sticks of Blue Bonnet margarine don't appear to deliver what we, the consumers, are led to believe we're purchasing. Each stick appears to be a tablespoon too short. Rather than 8 tablespoons, each stick seems to have a 1/2T cut from each end, leaving you, the baker, with only 7 tablespoons.
Thus, if you're baking your favorite batch of cookies that call for two sticks (i.e., two cups), and you blindly dump those two Blue Bonnet sticks into your batter, then you will end up Two TABLESPOONS short.
And what does that mean?
Dry! Dry! Dry!
Take heed, my friends. I want you all to have a happy set of holidays. ;)
