Thus, in the face of this quintessential first world problem, it is imperative that we remain vigilant and hopeful in our dedication to solving our other first world problems and our cantankerous urges to splurge with products offered from SkyMall (or as I love to call it, "the company that sells every thing that I never needed"). So The Steel Trap has devised a plan of sorts: if we all buy something from SkyMall, we can save the company, right? RIGHT?!?!? Okay, fine. That might not work. It's been a long time since I had an economics class, BUT if my plan actually would work, here are the ten items that I would totally buy:
|Ice Shoot for Icemakers|
|Oval Office Presidents' H.M.S. Resolute Desk|
At a cool $5,499.00, "this historic desk is a replica of the one created from the timbers of the British H.M.S. Resolute, given to U.S. President Rutherford Hayes in 1880 by Queen Victoria and used by most American heads of State since. A presidential 6-feet in width, this solid mahogany masterwork features hand carving that includes a nothing-short-of-amazing American eagle on little John-John Kennedy's opening panel and an enviable, tooled antique brown leather top with gold tooling. This extraordinary Victorian replica boasts letter and file drawers hidden behind doors with metal pulls along with three shallow drawers up top to hold your mighty presidential pen. Sure to be the signature piece in home or office, this stunning work is almost unparalleled among pieces that carry a rich American history." And, SkyMall offers curbside delivery on this item. Boom! I can now reenact my favorite scenes from Scandal in the privacy of my own Oval Office.
|Kitty Washroom Cabinet|
At $99.98, cat lovers can hide "the messy litter box inside this handsome piece that instantly enhances the look of your bath, kitchen or laundry room.. The front swings open like a door so you can easily scoop or change the litter. Two shelves offer added storage and display space; the stainless steel bar gives you a convenient place to hang your scoop." We can also hang the pooper scooper next to our hand-towel. Wait... is that kind of gross?
|Personalized Sand Names Print|
|No Blind Spot Rear View Mirror|
|Great White Shark Sculpture|
|NFL Casserole Kimono|
|Italian Replica Globe Bar|
|Mischievous Moose Bottle Holder|
Final thought: maybe I need to organize a 5K to raise awareness as well? Who's with me? #SaveSkyMall
