Our refrigerator unexpectedly crapped out on us this week, so Benny and I have been sitting around miserably watching our food rot shopping for a new fridge. It’s really hard to buy a new refrigerator these days if you live in an old house like we do; the new SUV-style refrigerators are too wide to fit into the cut-out space in the kitchen meant to house the fridge.
It’s also hard to buy a new refrigerator no matter what house you live in if you’re shopping with me. The problem is that I get too distracted in places like Sears; not only is Sears the home of the trusted Kenmore line of appliances, but also the home of these fabulous items:
Just look at “F” up there. Fur curtains. Made by Monsanto. Jesus crackers, those are incredible. Now, it’s true that the above image is from the fall/winter 1976 Sears catalog and not a display I found in any store, but I will bet you dollars to doughnuts that if you sent in your order form with proper payment, Sears would be able to find that item in a warehouse somewhere and ship them to you Cash On Delivery. And I ask you, who can think of refrigerators when somebody’s shoving fur curtains in your face?
