A Story About A Little Plastic Super Secret Spy Listening Kit

When I was 16 – 1990 – I had this friend who had this younger sister. This younger sister had been given a “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit”. It consisted of a little satellite dish – about 10 inches round – and a pair of little plastic headphones. I don’t think it actually worked, but it was a neat little plastic toy anyway.

Somehow, the little plastic satellite dish part of the “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit” ended up in my friends car – a 1985 Cutlass. I kept holding it up to his head while he was driving and telling to say something so I could listen to it in a “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit” fashion.

We were driving down I-270 at about 75mph, and I had the bright idea to see if I could hold my hand out the window with the the little plastic sattelite dish part of the “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit” in it with only the wind holding it there.

It worked…for about 3 seconds.

After that it went flying out of my hand and smacked into the hood of the BMW following us. You can’t believe how much damage the little plastic satellite dish part of the “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit” can do to the hood of a $60,000 car going 75mph.

My parents were not very impressed.

And the little plastic satellite dish part of the “Super Secret Spy Listening Kit” was pretty much destroyed, so my friends little sister was even less impressed.

And that jerk driving the BMW didn’t even offer to pay for it…
