Steffi ‘n Zeini were making fun of me the other day for having old-fashioned electrical outlets in my house.1 I think they said something like,
Geez, what century are these outlets from? No USB Power? It’s 2015 you know!
Under their relentless teasing pressure I broke down and installed some cool new wall outlets with USB power! Hooray! No more ugly “wall warts!”
- This statement is essentially not true. They never actually said anything like this. Or not in English anyway. Who knows what they go on about in German!? In fact they were very sweet about things and complimented me profusely on the cool USB Charging Station in the Print Room. But it is true that while they never made any sort of complaints, the vision of Steffi’s massive USB & International adapters protruding from the dining room wall did make me realize the situation was sort of barbaric. So the motivation for a little home renovation did come from them after all. ↩
