THE BICKERSONS GO REFRIGERATOR SHOPPING

Yesterday we went to IKEA + scored some amazing bargains for our kitchen.

You’ll just have to take my word for it, though,

because just like “ALL the professional bloggers”,

I left my camera at home.

Oh, dear.  Let’s try to move on.

Check this out:

IKEA white fridge

NUTID S23 White counter depth refrigerator

Regular: $1,899.00 / Clearance: $699

IKEA fridge -- interior

WHOA!!!  I know!!!  I still can’t believe it!!!

1. A mere $699 . . . AND . . . 2. counter depth . . . AND . . . 

. . . 3. the Kay-coveted WHITE!!!!???

Plus, 4. it does not say IKEA on it,

+ 5. it does have the acceptable (stainless) handles —

not those cheapie-looking white plastic ones.

I’ve got my standards.

“But why white?” you ask?

Stainless is what we have now, but I wanted to be different.

If you really must know, here’s why I went over to the white side:

Yesh, that’s my designer lady crush, Sarah Richardson,

.who, in one of her most recent projects,

 chose white kitchen appliances.

Sadly, I am not Sarah,

nor is G.O. anything like Tommy (Sarah’s main gay):

LOVE him!

Nope.  G.O. nixed the idea of the white appliances!

The humanity!

 I’m kind of glad that I forgot the camera,

because the Bickersons in the IKEA kitchen department

wasn’t such a pretty picture, after all.

He protested, as he does, + I just listened stared at him.

I then marched over to Mr. IKEA Man

+ asked if, at that price,

the (3 remaining) white refrigerators would be soon be gone.

When he said “today”, that was that — for me, anyway.

OMiGosh!

G.O. color-shamed me,

right there in front of Mr. IKEA Man! —

 saying that “everybody on HGTV wants stainless + granite!!!”

I, of course, was mortified + refused to engage.

At this moment, however, Mr. IKEA Man,

who’s probably heard it all, at least a bazillion times,

brightly offered this patented conflict diffuser:

“I always tell people that, if they want white,

they should get white!”

I couldn’t agree more . . .

. . . aaaaaand they’re delivering our white refrigerator tomorrow.

Thanks, Mr. IKEA Man.

Oh, + IKEA, too, for offering these at such a deep discount.
