- order online, pay standard shipping charges, and wait nearly two weeks for delivery
- order online, pay express shipping charges, and probably receive it later this week

Once I reached the Burlington Mall, there wasn't really much to it - I found the store, found the breathalyzer, and just after noon today, I became the proud owner of a brand new AlcoHAWK Pro. I then commenced to search for another toy I'd like to obtain - a portable digital voice recorder. I checked the Brookstone in Burlington - no luck. After lunch, I returned to New Hampshire and tried the Fox Run Mall, but there isn't even a Brookstone there, despite the company website saying otherwise. I decided to take one more shot at the Brookstone outlet store in Kittery, and came up empty there too. Upon returning home, I checked my computer again and saw that the recorder isn't even in their stores. D'OH!
The packaging for my new breathalyzer contains probably the most brazen example of legalese I've ever seen. Look at note 3 below the table of specs, and then look at the little photo above the table. Very curious.
So do I intend to operationally test the AlcoHAWK Pro this evening? You bet your behind I do. If it goes well, I'll seek to introduce it to a wider spectrum of subjects in the near future.
