It all started with this nifty "airpot" coffee dispenser I bought and gave to the church.
Worked fine for several years, and then the pump lever on the top (which turned out to be plastic) cracked, rendering it unusable. Went shopping for another one, and couldn't find one anywhere! A friend recommended checking eBay, and pointed out, jocularly, that some folks were selling their old 70's style plastic airpots with tacky designs on the exterior and that I could get one of those. Well, I DID check eBay, and hadn't really made a final decision.
A day or two later, I stopped in at a Goodwill store, just to poke around. I found THIS:
Ah, the days when this was a selling point!
|Glad to know my coffee pot is free of poison, but, is that even a word?|
|So, I should set it on fire?|
|A bit blurry. $3.98!|
