For some people, the 70s never ended

This wireless X10 wall switch comes with a perforated sheet of labels, so you can mark what each switch is controlling. The labels on the sheet include all the possible locations you can imagine having a lamp: “kitchen,” “bathroom,” “study,” etc., etc., etc., … and “cove.”

I can’t shake the image of some overweight guy, his garishly colored shirt open to reveal copious gold chains and chest hair, reaching out for his X10 remote and saying “Hey, baby, let’s go to my cove.”

But maybe you can.
