    ha! I have the same gloves in screaming orange… they are much better than the mittens… think I will wear them on the street now too :o)

      These are great gloves!!! After a year of trial grabs, we gave some as Christmas presents. Perfect for grilling, and snatching pans out of the oven. And fish smell completely washes out of them. Orange certainly is a bright choice – a must have color for UT students – and Bronco football fans who take grills to tailgate at games.
      We went for green – well, not because these are environmentally green, it’s just Molly tends to seek out red/ orange things to “play” with. HA HA
      Thanks for cooking up a comment

    Those gloves look like they’d be wonderful for nighttime grilling. Turn all the lights out and just have the flame from the grill and the glow-in-the-dark gloves. I don’t know about wearing them out to the movies or to dine out. Might be a bit hard to navigate chop sticks for example. Very colorful – I must “hand” it to ya!

    Short and to the point – indeed! I have seen these gloves but did not quite trust them but I will take your word that they work. They would be easy to find!

      We’ve test grabbed with these gloves for a year and they keep on saving fingers! Your choice of colors: bright blue, scarlet red, Dayglow orange or green. We went with red and green for Christmas presents for people, however, blue seems much more appropriate for cool mitts. Thanks for toasting up a comment to leave

    Now that’s a perfect Phil mouse post! What the hell are those gloves???!!

      Such elegant ladies having a chat. Improves the texture of life?
      Their workplace is pretty hot: grills, ovens, moving heated pans – with ease they grasp the situation and move in protecting those silly humans that can’t seem to keep their hands off hot things. (temperature “hot”, not “borrowed without permission with no plans to return hot”). And even better grilled fish and shrimp smells wash right off…pizza sauce, too. Then they easily perch on water bottles and just stand around until dry. Considering they are hard workers, time is allowed for their conversations. The secret lives of workers…do they trash their employers, do you think?
      Thanks for handing over a comment!

        Now I’m completely sold. I need a pair just for the entertainment value. Plus I burn myself often…

          Ditto. They are getting more use than intended here, too. (Hmmm, I can see some real possibilities as robot hands for dishing out candy on Halloween …). Hands down, these things have creative uses.

    The glove pair is perfect for Valentine’s day!


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Feb 16 2016 8:36 am

      See, now a red pair would work for Christmas and Valentines and Lunar New Year. These two seemed to be in deep conversation over St Patrick’s Day plans…shrimp, perhaps? Thanks for adding a holiday glow!

        Any time! And yes, red would be more winter holiday, but green is looking toward spring. Nice touch; I like where you’re headed.

    A lot to think about here. But maybe NOT those gloves.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Feb 16 2016 8:35 am

      In nightmares, perhaps. Am a bit worried they noticed I noticed they were having a conversation…..
      Thanks for watching the shadows in sight and risking a comment!

    Could those gloves get any more green?? I think not!! lol

      They are downwind from that biolab….and a good baseball player could toss a rock at the NASA complex (“They are out there!”)..Maybe hidden in plain sight in the community! Thanks for sounding the green alarm with a comment

    I lovelovelove everything about this. EVERYTHING. Great gloves, wonderful philosophical exploration, total brain-fun!
    The writing reminds me of Bob’s wordsongs. Did he have a part if this? If he did, please give him our best (esp from Pickles).
