Double Up

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, which is way easier to do if you have four hands.

When I woke up one morning to find an extra set of hands had grown out of my stomach, I didn’t ask why or how. I just said, this is what the universe has given me and dangit, I’m going to make the most of it! And man has it been great! I can carry in all the groceries in one trip. I can hold the phone to my ear while I’m busy chopping onions. And best of all, I can take pictures without having to drop everything to fish my camera out of my fanny pack!

There are two problems here, though: 1) I’m a total photo nerd, so I demand quality, and 2) we’re talking about some hands that just grew out of my stomach earlier this year, so they’re not the most coordinated of all appendages. That’s why I bought this Panasonic Lumix 16.1MP Digital Camera. It’s got face-recognition and can take stunning high-quality pics, but it’s also not as burdensome or difficult to use as some of the big professional cameras!

It’s so great that I’d say Nikon could build a whole campaign marketing it to people like me, but then again, I understand if they don’t. After all, we are kind of niche group.
