I’m in this small town that I used to live in, like immediately after we got married And we didn’t have much money, and we had to just save as much as we could by shopping at the bent and dent store So this is the bent and dent store that we used to shop at and One day my wife, thought it would be a good idea to economize on one particular product that you just don’t economize on and It was a defining moment in our marriage, so let’s go see if they have it still.
