    A certain microwave Mac & cheese with cut up burger meal. Only 17 ounces, but incredibly delicious!! After heating the mac and cut up burger pieces, you cut the cheese packet and pour it on top, then swirl it in, and enjoy! Two things though, you provide your own spoon or spork; and you can't tear open the packet (despite the instructions saying you can).

    Out comes my CRKT M16-13SF. Sharp as a razor. Made short work of that packet.

    Used my Nitecore MT2A and Fenix E05 to see groceries in the back of my Dad's truck.
    Used the E05 to see in the bottom of a closet.
    Used my Zancudo to cut through packaging of various cans/boxes of food items
    Used the scissors on my Style PS to cut off an annoying sticky bag closer thingy on a bag of bread rolls.

    Believe it or not they let me use my pocket knife in the labor and delivery room tonight!

    No ben Rubenstein they didn't let me cut the cord with it. They were having trouble getting an IV in my wife and when they stuck her the first time it resulted in a bit of a "leak". They decided to replace her admission bracelet and the nurse was dumbfounded trying to remove the old one. In striped the Kizer Gemini! I was secretly really excited.

    A day or two ago, I dropped a micro SD card under my desk. Those things are tiny, and on dark carpet, :censored: near impossible to find. Luckily I had my Olight i3s eos to light my way to the dark corner where it ended up. If I couldn't find it, I probably would have given up for the day haha

    At the church I go to, there's a small lobby area with the main doors that is between the sanctuary and the rest of the building. There's a pair of chairs and a small table there and folks like to sit there after church to talk. As part of the decorations in the church there was a glass bowl with some rocks in it sitting on the table. Some of the younger children were hanging out there waiting for their parents to get done talking and drinking coffee and one of them bumped the table, which was a little wobbly to begin with. Next thing anybody knew, there was a pile of rocks and shattered glass all over the floor. I used my handkerchief as a place to put the glass temporarily while cleaning it up, and then gathered the four corners of the hank together and dumped the glass out into the trash. I love carrying a handkerchief because it's such a simple thing, fairly inexpensive, and yet has so many uses.

    Used my Vic spirit to pull some half inch PEX from deep inside the 4" PVC tube I store it in. Ate an MRE for an early supper while I sit at the dealership having truck maintenance done on the work truck. Also, am typing on my new iPadPRO :D

    I usually get my lunchtime sandwiches from the same counter at work and generally have a quick chat with the bloke who works there. Yesterday he was complaining that his new fleece had shed pale fibres all over his black work shirt leaving him looking like he'd been rolling around in a dog basket!

    I unrolled a short length of duct tape from my pocket card wrap, looped it back on itself and left him (very surprised and grateful!) with a makeshift lint remover.

    I had to replace some Smart Dimmers Today on a job and it was not a planned call.
    Only had my Skinth but only really needed my Alox Cadet anyway.
