A Sad Farewell...

A beloved member of our family passed away today. Steve and I have been the proud owners of our "Conair Pro Style Mini Dryer 1250 Watts" for nearly 30 years. Lots of people talk about planned obsolescence in appliances - but here's one small appliance that bucked the odds. It was the brave little blow dryer that could. It's not like we kept it wrapped up in cotton and gingerly used it occasionally. This blow dryer had been dropped on the floor countless times and dropped in the toilet at least once or twice. I sort of wish that we had given it a name.


Is it too late to name a dead blow dryer?

GASP! I loved that blow dryer! It could whip my hair into shape no matter the humidity! Sniff! AND,that was on my 'inheritance' list of assets: when you croaked that blow dryer was mine (I know there wasn't anything formal but it would have disappeared quietly.) Snork! May it rest in piece(s).

Isn't there a movie named after this exact blow drier?!

I think I had that same hair dryer. Like 30 years ago. I am so sorry for your loss.

I now have to go find a new one...it's so hard to replace the irreplaceable.
