It’s John here, your final substitute before Liz gets back from vacation. I get to work with Liz every day, but I know you miss her, so I promise to keep this brief.
I’m here to confess something: I’m a fidgeter. Sure, I’m calm and composed on my Zoom meetings with colleagues, but that’s only what you can see on the camera. Under the desk, my knees are bouncing and my hands are fumbling with something — a pen, one of my kids’ toys, or my keys.
I just have never been very good at sitting still.
From time to time, my wife will bring home various toys and trinkets so that I’ll have something new to play with.
For those of you who have similar fidgety tendencies to me, here are four of my favorites, along with dizzying, maddening GIFs of them in action.
I’ve also put in Amazon links if you’d like to buy them. I’m not affiliated — I’m just a fidgety fan.
1. This one is two links of what looks like bike chain looped with key rings. It seems pretty low-tech, but it spins smoothly. Find it here.
2. These are magnetic rings made of plastic. You can flip them, spin them, and rotate them. Want 'em? Here they are.
