A month ago I stood in the kitchen with mascara running down my face and my eyes burning while I chopped an onion. And because my family doesn’t even bat an eye as I loudly blurt out expletives while attempting anything in the kitchen, it didn’t surprise them when I exclaimed “Surely someone has invented some !@*^$% onion cutting goggles..!?”
I reached into our school supply closet and gave the science lab safety goggles a try. No luck. Duh. But I was determined.
Then, as it happens most of the time when I turn to Amazon looking for whatever I’m hoping that someone has invented, onion cutting glasses do, in fact, exist. This may be old news to you, but it was news to me.
And what better time to share this find than as part of the WordPress Daily Prompt to write about something that I think is the best thing since …well, you know… sliced bread.
So there you have it. Hands down the best new gadget to come into my life … my special onion cutting glasses, in fire engine red. The foam around the eye of the glasses blocks out all vapors. And, as a bonus, I’m always ready for an extreme Airsoft challenge if one occurs in the backyard while I’m chopping onions.
