My new sex toy!
Recently, a young writer came to my home to be the writer in residence for six weeks. Before zee came, zee asked me how zee should pack zer Magic Bullet. For those who are lost, zee identifies as gender neutral, so zee and zer are the correct pronouns to use, zee informs me.
I thought, what a clever name for a vibrator. “Oh, the customs agents have seen sex toys before,” I said. “Just put it in your suitcase.”
When zee arrived I learned that Magic Bullet is not a vibrator but the blender that everyone in the U.S. apparently owns.
The last thing I wanted was a new blender. I am a careful editor of my kitchen equipment but I still own enough to sink a ship.
One twist of zee’s Magic Bullet and I marched into my Mexican Costco and bought one. Cheaper than it could be had in the U.S. it turns out. You can also buy them here.
In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know about the Magic Bullet, you heard it here. Last.
