Okay, so I’ve been seriously slacking off on my personal blog posts. Mostly I post stuff on Facebook, and usually lots of small posts each day. I really need to update the personal blog, though, since not everything needs to go on Facebook.
What could have been 8 or 10 or 12 years ago, I mentioned on Facebook that I didn’t have adequate pockets on my gym shorts and sweat pants – either no pockets at all or such skimpy little pockets my keys would fall out. I have a ‘thing’ about keeping my keys on me at all times, so it was a problem for me.
Someone on my Friendlist sent me a marvelous little product called a RooSport — a small pocket device with a magnetic flap that you could attach to the waistband of your shorts so the pocket part was inside your shorts and the flap went over and attached to itself with magnets. The pocket had a little hook-and-loop closure. If I remember correctly, my friend had gotten it free as some sort of promotional and maybe even prototype product. She didn’t need it, so she sent it to me.
I have used it almost daily to keep my keys on me at all times, except when I was wearing regular pants with regular pockets. It has become an essential part of my daily wardrobe, I guess, and I have gotten much use out of it.
Recently, however, I felt a poking on my hip and discovered the inner plastic form had come loose. Ouch.
Call me crazy, but getting poked like that is just not acceptable. So, I went online and discovered that this original product is not available, but RooSport is still very much a thing. You can visit their website to see how the product has been improved. The don’t have the original model, so I ordered the smallest one available, and just received it this morning. It is larger than the original, and I don’t carry my phone or wallet in the Roo, just the keys. But I’m happy to have a replacement now and grateful for the many years of service I got from the original. 🙂
And with that, I am off into the day to take care of what needs doing.
