I wish I had bought it much earlier.

Happy Birthday, Sam!

I think about camping so, so much. I know I will hardly ever actually go, but I obsess about the stuff near-daily. A while back, I did not resist buying a tiny little air pump to inflate air mattresses. It’s so tiny!

Yes, those are my keys, and yes, it is that tiny.

It comes with several different attachments that fill different sizes of things. Here’s the setup I need for the double mattress:

As wonderful as it is for inflating stuff, its true value has been in the shriek-y sound it makes. Ralph. Is. Terrified. When he’s sneaking around my bacon in the morning, I now just have to show it to him and he runs away! Total win!

    It was worth buying if only for the reason that it saves your bacon.

    It’s so portable! Could you rig it to blow air into your shirt on hot days?
