A gift – answer

14 Jul

So – what was that gift that Li brought home?

It was a seat cushion.

But not just any seat cushion – a seat cushion with small holes that when you sit on it is cool.  It’s like a mini-airconditioner for your bottom, but without any wires or electricity.

I don’t know how they do it – but I’ve been sitting on it for close to a month now and it makes a huge difference when it is this hot.

Since the box (which I threw away before taking a photo) was entirely in Japanese I am not 100% sure of the intended purpose, but our theory is that it is probably for a car – so that when you sit down on a hot car seat it will be cool.  I don’t have a car in China.  The cushion resides on my couch.

Congrats to David, Mona and Sarah , who all used excellent observation powers to get to the correct answer.

It was a great gift.  The only question is – Why don’t they sell them in China?

Any thoughts?
