Go to the store and purchase one?
71. Favorite T.V. Commercial?
The old 1980s California Raisins commercials, bar none. Also this one that only I seem to remember, from the same era–it’s a bagel commercial where this man is roofing a house, and then he’s paid with a hot, fresh bagel. The camera zooms in to the worker, and then he asks “A bagel–for puttin’ on a roof?” Pregnant pause. Then, his approval: “A bagel–for puttin’ on a roof!” Anyone else remember that?

    When you get the debt paid off, and you have the means, I highly recommend upgrading to the king size bed. My wife and I were able to do that, (Thank you Craigslist) and it has made ALL the difference in the world, and the little guy can even come in there with us and I don’t crush him accidently. I highly recommend the Tempurpedic line!
