OK, so you wouldn’t buy it.
How about if you saw it at the curb for free?
Would you stop and pick it up?
Or would you snicker and hit the gas pedal a little harder to get by it faster?
I would most certainly have picked it up, that’s a no brainer.
But I didn’t.
My sister-in-law did!
I got an excited phone call from her on Sunday.
She was in the car with her husband driving and spotted this.
“Pull over!” she exclaimed, “Rose would love that!”
Her Hubby, my brother-in-law, instead snickered and sped up. (sound familiar? yup, they’re brothers all right)
She got home, called me up and asked if I would want it. (at the time she thought it was a duck or something like that)
Me (dubiously) - “If it’s not plastic, yeah sure, it sounds cool.”
So she corralled her youngest son for help and went back and got it.
So now it’s in my yard, leaning against the fence and awaiting a new role.
It is metal, you can see where the paint has worn away in places….
Like the seat…
How many children do you think rode on this?
And look at the handle bars, where the paint is completely worn away by countless little hands holding on for dear life.
He’s got a bit of a scary smile going on, don’t you think?
So now that it’s mine, what should I do with it?
And by the way, I know it’s some kind of fish, but what?
Do you know?
I’m linking up to a new party I found through visiting Laurel at Chipping with Charm- it’s at Junker Newbie Stephanie’s place and the party is called “Would you buy it Wednesday”
I sure hope she doesn’t disqualify me for curbshopping it! I rarely actually buy stuff, but am faced with the same dilemma over whether I should pick something up from the curb or not.
