Yesterday, on my way home from a trip to the supermarket, I stopped in at a local second hand shop. Whilst chatting to the owner I spotted a waterslide – made in 1988! – on the top of a shelf. Upon enquiring about the price he said it not for sale and more for show – he liked it because the box looked so outdated. So did I.
A little bargaining and he agreed on a $20 price tag and the assurance that I could return it for a full refund if it was missing anything, as it was open on one end. I figured it was worth a chance (I had been meaning to buy one all summer), and took it home without checking the contents.
Immediately following breakfast this morning Ruben was keen to try it out. We unpacked the box and were most delighted – it had never even been used. How amazing – 26 years old and never opened.
A lovely sunny Sunday morning spent slipping and sliding on our front lawn. I hope you had a lovely weekend also.
