The Snuggle Snorkle and other things that should have been invented


Ya know, growing new people leads to lots of fun and random side effects, like a runny nose prone to easy blockage and reduced space for lungs in your ribcage and an inability to get comfortable contributing to the torturous feeling that can sometimes steal upon you, when for once you have found the perfect position in bed, your back doesn't ache, your lodger is quiet and relaxed, and you are just perfectly snuggled under the duvet in the nicest warmest perfectest spot... until you realise - you can't breathe here - there's just not enough air around when you've snuggled to that sweet extent... So why oh why is there not an easy to use "Snuggle Snorkel" for such an occasion, to allow you to enjoy the cosy nooks of your own bed? dagnammit?! That could have been my protest subject if I'd thought of it in time...
I haven't really thought of anything else that should have been invented... but c'mon, give me a break - have you?

A floating bed for mothers to be that will glide them off to sleep in heavenly comfort......and if not that then an automated bulb planting machine so that 120 socks wouldn't have to wake up with a strained shoulder after planting 500 of the blasted things!!1

Automated bulb planting machine, will add it to the list socks

You'll be laughing when your flowers come up,,, am I to take it then that Benson won't go around eating all the flowers just before they blossom by the way? as a certain meticulous dog in my house would never let that happen!

I really think the wheel should have been invented by now.

Or an under-duvet fart/ smelly feet aroma extractor.

Not that I need one.

Knew someone would come up with that eventually, it was only a matter of time...

I should like a housekeeper(TM). Has anyone invented a housekeeper yet?
Alternatively, a small running machine for the dog. Which releases a variety of smells on a timing switch to keep him interested and engaged. For use on VERY wet days like this one.

or a shouting machine for when they start digging in place they are not allowed, again for moist days when digging is easy...

Why not make yourself a snuggle snorkel? Market it even? It has potential.

I always liked the idea of a semi-rigid bag, all cushioned on the inside, that you could crawl into. It would have light, radio, space for snacks, books/CDs, even a laptop. You could zip/velcro yourself in for as long as you liked (well, until you needed the bathroom).

Dominic - that reminds me of your igloo!
Sorta like a tent then, or a mini house... I'd call it the coccoon... it'd be seen as a little antisocial, but I can imagine it bein pretty nice.
