Makes Beth Happy, October 9 ...
While the meaning of the word does not make me happy, the pronunciation of it surely does. Say it a few times. It's funny!
The Makes-Beth-Happy Recipe of the Day is:
I have a desperate, unfortunate infatuation with white flour, especially in the form of risen breads. Also, I like saying "challah knot."
And the Makes-Beth-Happy Objet of the Day is:
I have a bit of a lamp fetish. And while I never really pondered if I had a favorite shape, I surely am drawn to circles these days. Also, yes, I like saying, "Netto."
A little aside for Lowe's: The "Nobody beats our prices. Nobody." shtick is bunk, my friends. I first saw this lamp on Amazon. The price today? $112.05. Your price today? $186.78. And my options to obtain it? Pick it up in a store or truck delivery for $59.
Let's see how that stacks up, shall we?
Amazon: $112.05 + Free Shipping = $112.05
Lowe's: $186.78 + $59 Truck Delivery = $245.78
Difference = $133.73
On the product alone, you charge $74.73 more than Amazon.
And, for what it's worth, every other retailer that stocks this lamp – as ascertained through Google Shopping – charges less than you, by at least $30 (and that's The Home Depot, your arch nemesis).
Everybody beats your prices. Everybody.
