Blast from the past: Throwback ice cube tray — Episode 2: Price break

Hbijpijipj

Every year around this time I like to break the mold — as it were — and feature a simple, nostalgia-laden object that reminds me of summertimes of old.

Like this classic aluminum ice cube tray that drove me and everyone else nuts back in the day.

Bet it still does.

From the website:

    Aluminum Ice Cube Tray

    The original is back and our customers are thrilled!

    Classic, hard-to-find aluminum ice cube tray works without the struggle of modern plastic versions.

    Simply raise the handle and 18 cubes tumble right out.

    4"L x 1-3/4"W x 11"H.

...................

And where does it say that a "price break" is synonymous with "lower?"

Hmmm?

Not in my dictionary.

Actually, it's not surprising that the price has gone up 50% since last year, what with water being more expensive and all.

Wait a minute....

$8.99.

FunFact: Henry James said that "summer afternoon" was his favorite phrase in the English language.
