Dear Opp Shop Gods
They say that if you send it out to the Universe it will come to you.
On Sunday at Ben's 2nd birthday Jen made a passing comment about needing a Sunbeam Mixmaster and asked me to keep my peepers open. On Tuesday on the way to pick up gloves I dropped into my favourite opp shop and behold there was a classic Mixmaster with two bowls and a juicer. Just the same as both my and Jen's Mums had. They had a particular smell these Mixmaster, of hot meringue, a Proustian childhood smell.
OSGs you made it very hard for me. I had a little Devil on one shoulder saying 'keep it for yourself' and a little Angel on the other telling me to call Jen and tell her I had found what she had asked for. I'm sure the man serving me was a little worried as expressions of greed and altruism fought across my face. Well the Angel won and Jen is coming to pick up her 'new' mixer tomorrow, so I was just wondering Opp Shopping Gods whether you can view this as a tick on my side of the Opp Shopping scoreboard and if you could possibly see a way of, perhaps, you know, maybe sending something special my way sometime in the near future. Just a thought.
All the best and keep up the good work
