Margie: Edna, come look what Cousin T bought us at the flea market. He found an old Sears catalog. This sure brings back a lot of memories. Remember all the uses Mama could find for a Sears catalog?
Edna: My lands, I sure do. Mama sure was resourceful, wasn't she? I remember how she used to wrap Christmas presents in the pages when times were tight.
Margie: She sure did and she'd use some pages to start the morning fire. Mama always wanted the house to be warm when we got out of bed.
It sure wasn't fun using those pages in the outhouse though. My behind was always... never mind.
Edna: You always give our readers too much information, Margie.
Margie: Lawsy me, Edna. Look here. Remember when we ordered these pretty slips? They don't make them like this anymore. Look at that price!
Edna: I know, and those slips lasted for years, didn't they? Longer than some of your marriages, anyway.
Margie: Dear readers, I'm not talking to this moron. I want to say to you all that I have fond memories of the Sears catalog and the main reason is because I cut the models out and made paperdolls. I hope you all have happy memories like this.
Edna: I bet they do. You know Margie, I'm an old woman, you need to get to the point faster next time.
