Now I remember why I didn’t have a windshield sun shade in my car for all these years — they suck. This weekend I threw a “Magic Shade” into Merrin’s cart at Target thinking, “Hey, it’s summer in Texas. I probably need this.” Yeah, like a hole in the head.
First, it’s not magic. I was neither transformed nor transported. That being said, for $12.00 I really didn’t expect much. What I did expect, though, is something that I could actually fold when I’m not using it. Seriously. When the directions say,
…fold the shade into a taco shell shape, palms facing up and in. Twists wrists inward slightly and cross wrists…
I don’t even know what the directions are after that because I have to go to the flipping ER ever time I try to wrench my taco wrists into some preverted twister formation. Seriously, if a guy has to spend this much time torquing his wrists, he ought to get some satisfaction out of it, right? Magic? I’ll settle for getting the damn thing to fold.
