My last post discussed my need to trust people and the garage sale purchase of a hair dryer that no longer warmed the air. Many of you shared your feelings about the seller and a few of you had suggestions for alternate uses. Hot flashes would appreciate this hand held fan, I am told.
David came up with a possible "excuse", if you will, for the seller. Perhaps, he suggested, the lady's young adult daughter (or son) moved out of the house and left the defunct dryer behind. Perhaps Mom was cleaning out the cabinet and located the apparatus. Perhaps Mom plugged it in, heard the appropriate noise and said to herself, "Why did that child leave this perfectly good hair dryer behind?" Thus, the "I just want to get rid of it" one dollar price.
It could happen! Now, don't we all feel bad for not giving her the benefit of the doubt? ha!
Here is the hair dryer/hand held fan: (Zita, the background is a blanket box at my house)
What to do with it? Hmmmm.... We didn't think it would be a very nice gift. It really wouldn't be good will to donate it to Goodwill. No White Elephant parties in our near future. Sooo, we dismantled it. Here are the parts:
What, you ask, will we do with the parts?
Well, I am thinking we just got ourselves some Junk Pumpkin parts. Maybe a little something like this will happen in the fall with our new found junk.
David and I feel good about what we ended up with. There are happy endings, after all!
