After Brenda posted about the "Lucky in Love" auction on eBay right now (http://www.ebay.com/itm/LUCKY-IN-LOVE-Vintage-Pyrex-RARE-UNIQUE-RAREST-OF-THE-RARE-MID-CENTURY-DIE-/281166148848?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4176cef4f0), I of course went to check out the bids and enjoy the show. Mind-boggling.
When my husband (who is my beloved Pyrex-enabler) came home from work last night, I described the auction and the background of the piece. It was a busy night, though, so he didn't have a chance to look at the piece online. This morning, I got a series of very entertaining texts from him:
At 10:50 a.m.: I think Lucky in Love is pretty dumb looking.
Just googled it.
At 11:29 a.m. : It seems like an after hours creation from a Pyrex intern.
At 11:44 a.m. : Well, I guess it's not that bad.
It's so 1950's.
At 12:12 p.m. : It's like something Dean Martin would come up with.
And finally, the punchline that only a true lover of Pyrex (albeit one who was forced into the habit) could ever say:
At 12:33 p.m. : I'd still love to find the piece in the wild though.
