small appliances

i was up late last night trying to buy things on amazon -- specifically, a heavily-discounted twin pack of sonicare replacement electric toothbrush replacement heads. they'd been discounted heavily, to the point where they missed the cutoff for free super-saver shipping by 86 cents. a small part of me said "you cheap bastard. just buy them and pay the shipping." but it was a very small part of me and easily crushed; after all, how hard can it be to find something useful and needful on amazon for less than $10 and also eligible for super-saver shipping? 3 hours later, having rejected a four-pack of 200-yard dentotape dispensers, a 12-pack case of listerine mouthwash, and a discounted carton full of small assorted moleskine notebooks sold by a vendor in taijikistan, i ended up with this. now amazon will not stop foisting kitchenaid mixers, dutch ovens, slow cookers, and miscellaneous small kitchen appliances on me.
