The Taylors Shop for Appliances
Antoinette finally convinced Tony to let her remodel the kitchen. It took a lot of doing on her part, but she finally did it. Today is the day to pick out the appliances.
Antoinette has given her standard, "Do not touch anything in here and no running around." speech to the girls.
Tony: I like this set.
Antoinette: Yes, this one is nice, but we don't need a new
Nikaya: Don't touch it, Zahara.
Zahara: I'm just looking at it.
Clerk: Hello ma'am. Can I help you fnd something?
Antoinette: We need a little more time to look around.
Clerk: No problem. Take your time. I will check back in a
Zahara: Why are you following me?
Nikaya: Mommy told me to watch you.
Zahara: No, she didn't!
Antoinette: Now this is what I'm talking about. Look at the size of
Tony: How much is it?
Antoinette: I could bake a lot of cakes in here.
Tony: The one over here seems to be a better value. You
get more for your money.
Nikaya: Oooh. You gonna get in trouble.
Antoinette: Honey, this fits into the budget just fine. Since we
are not replacing the cabinets, the dishwasher or
the sink, there is plenty of money in the budget
for these two pieces.
Tony: I trust you. I just wanted to make sure we were
making the right decision.
Antoinette: Have I ever steered us wrong? Oooh Kenaz.
You need a haircut, little boy.
Antoinette: This is definitely it! There is room for everything.
Antoinette: Shhhh. Lower your voice, please.
Nikaya: But mom, it does have a tv.
Antoinette: That's wonderful, but I can't do anything with a
Clerk: This is our newest model. Not only does it
have a built in TV, but if you push it gently,
there is a surprise on the other side.
Nikaya: Ooooh. An ice cream machine.
Clerk: Actually, it is a frozen yogurt machine.
Zahara: Mommy, can we get this one, pleeeaaaase?
Antoinette: So I can have another reason to tell you guys
to get out of the refrigerator. No thank you.
I can just imagine the mess now.
Tony: Sir, we are going to go with the commercial grade,
stainless steel set. How soon can we have that
Clerk: Follow me to the counter and I can ring you up
and check our delivery schedule.
Epilogue - I am in the process of creating the Taylor's home. The refrigerator and stove they chose is a repainted Kitchen Littles set. The other part of the set still needs revamping. So the next time you see their kitchen, you can expect a little chaos. That is typically what happens in the midst of a remodel.
