. . . you spent $40.00 for a 1.25L Visions casserole and lid, just for heating your lunchtime can of soup in the microwave oven at work.

When you tell the appliance salesman an the local mom and pop appliance store that, "Ill never buy a new washer or dryer from you; your job is to keep my Maytags from 1977 in harvest gold, working." His answer is, with a smile on his face. "I know it and I can still get parts for them."
The same goes for my 1990 electric Whirlpool stove too. New parts are in for that; all he needs to do is to install them.

I did buy a new freezer on the bottom whirlpool fridge from him 4 years ago.
His parents started the business in the 50's and sold Easy, ABC, Speed Queen and Norge. I love talking with him mom, she remembers a lot about those halcyon days.

You have a dream of being in a laundromat the size of a warehouse with endless aisles of every make and model of vintage coin-op machines, deciding which ones to use, just to wake up before you can start and sit there in a foul mood for a few hours.

 . . . you can't stop lamenting "A life wasted boiling water" every time you make a no-boil baked pasta entree.

While I was taking a nap:

I dreamed I was using all these heat lamps, space heaters, and bare light bulbs and a neon sculpture & perhaps a real bug zapper to rid a closet of all these bugs, when my daughter woke me...

And last month, I dreamed I was trying too sneak into the shower at my dad's house, when he was washing his hands at the bathroom sink on a CELL PHONE (my sister got him subscribed to a Trac Phone, that he'd never used, let alone, let it be the only phone in the house, refusing to replace his obsolete land-line he still uses; the only phone there is in my sister's old bedroom on the floor) so he actually gabbing on it & even saw the empty holster for it on his belt, though I wonder how I got a front view of him at the sink, as if I were on the other side of the mirror, when my wife woke me...

Naturally, the daughter waking me was OK, it didn't interrupt anything, as that dream seemed finished, but my wife WASN'T, as that dream wasn't done & she had NO reason to wake me & to get me up for what she did...! (Kind'a yelled at her for disturbing & breaking up my dream, too)

. . . you ran the numbers and realized you've been shaving with Norelco shavers for 50 years.


And, yes, the first one was a Christmas gift when I was 13.

Wow, Joe, you're about the same age as me. I've only been shaving for 46 years - you started early.

I have 3 nephews, and neither of the older 2 shaved until they were 19. The youngest (different father) started when he was 12!
