Finger Tray

47441395_2c5b3973f5_m_3

Way beyond sublime is this wonderful drink tray, designed by Martino d'Esposito for Ligne Roset.

In white, red or black formed plastic.

Just like a bowling ball except there's a place for every single one of your fingers.

Balances nice and steadily on your hand.

Amaze your friends with your newfound serving skills.

So cool.

You'll have to contact Ligne Roset or visit one of their many stores around the world to get one — no can do online.

Then there is the problem of how do you get plates and glasses to sit flat when the finger molds stick out like that. Not a very useful invention.

Whoa...I can see a major injury waiting to happen and tendonitis aplenty. Carrying a tray flat-handed allows tray and hand to separate if the tray starts to rotate. I did my stint as a waitress in a Greek restaurant in Chesapeake VA-- the Purple Possum.

Sure, you show me this now. But where was it back in my grad school days, when I was a waitress at Burkett's Radiator Shop & Cafe (I am not making this up, I swear) in Hattiesburg, Mississippi? I could've concentrated on remembering what the customers wanted to eat instead of not spilling their food on them, because at Burkett's it was considered an insult if the waitress had to ask you what you wanted for lunch. The women, besides myself, had all worked there for 20 years and knew that Earl wanted chicken and dumplings (no salad, green beans instead) and sweet tea because it was Tuesday and the sun was shining.

Right when I was finally getting it all down pat and damn well impressed with myself, one of the (tenured) waitresses had a daughter who unexpectedly lost her job and needed employment post haste. Thus ended my four-month stint as a waitress - my services no longer needed right when I was starting to finally be of service.
