Everything and the Kitchen Sink
We are looking for fixtures for the new house, and decided to go to Lowe's to see some in person. It is nice ordering on the Internet and getting things shipped, but sometimes you need to touch things to get a good idea of size, quality, etc.
We looked at lighting first, then went to the washers and dryers, then over to toilets and bathroom sinks. After that it was on to faucets for both bathrooms and kitchen. On the way there, we passed the displays of kitchen cabinets, set up with countertops, sinks, faucets, wallpaper and flooring. A mom and her two sons were just leaving the area.
The younger son, probably 5 or 6 years old (I didn't see his teeth, so I was not positive) pointed to a display and said, "That's a beautiful kitchen! I didn't know they sold kitchens here. How do they get them out?"
I could see the mom smile slightly, trying not to laugh, as she very seriously told him, "I think they take them apart." They passed by me not knowing that I'd heard the exchange.
I love the idea that a kitchen could get delivered to you all set up and ready to use. The only thing better would be if you could order it that way online and it teleported into place.
