I was browsing through the racks of a store at the mall yesterday when I noticed something I didn’t know existed: a glove design that gives you both gloves without fingertips and mittens. They also came in great colors, so I decided on the spot to get a pair, even as I’m in saving mode.
I just couldn’t resist. They were so much fun, and so very useful, given that it was the first day of snow over here, and that my hands had been freezing.
I’ve never owned fingerless gloves before, but I realized at some point that they can come in handy these days, given that we need to use our smartphones on the go. I don’t instantly go to my smartphone when I ride a bus or the subway, for instance, but I keep noticing that more and more people do: they check their Facebook, play games, check their messages, write texts to friends.
