There is a company in my neighborhood that advertises these three things for sale. My question is why? I can (obviously) see the pianos and organs bit, but why waterbeds? How are they related? Other than they are all large items, (physically) I can’t see any other relation. Do waterbeds go together with pianos somehow? Do people often buy a piano and think “Damn, a waterbed is just what we nee - oh, look, honey!”
Please help me. This has been nagging at me for years and I finally must tell someone about it. And no, I have never been inside the store and don’t plan to? Why should I? I have no need of any of the three!
There’s a store in a town near where I grew up that sells sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. It’s even called The Place that Sells Sewing Machines and Vacuums or something like that. Well, at least the name tells you what you can buy there, though I don’t know how those two appliances go together either.
The only thing I can think off is that if they sell them second-hand, they’re probably all things that people unload when they move rather than deal with the hassle of trying to move them from one house to another.
“Hey, Joe, why dontcha open up a bridle 'n tack shop?”
“Come again? Bridal and tack shop? Ain’t that, y’know, kinda an odd combination?”
“Hell, no! They were made fer each other, can’t sell one without the other y’know.”
“Well, alright, if’n you say so, but there’s gonna be a lotta sore brides come honeymoon night…”
