Unreal Wants This Bathtub!

Posted By on Fri, May 22, 2009 at 3:14 PM

Unreal has long coveted the Cardinals bathtub that stands in the display window of the Henry Plumbing Supply on Kingshighway. Actually, truth be told, we only have a stall shower in our apartment and would covet any bathtub, but good God this one's a beauty.

Honestly, we kind of covet her feathery bath mules, too.

Yesterday we finally summoned the nerve and our crack reporting skills to make an inquiry.

"It's hand-painted by Clearwater," a cheerful spokeswoman named Gail informed us. "It was made for display only."

"Darn!" we said. (This was the mildest expression of our feelings.)

"But we'd sell it for $4,200," Gail continued.

"$4,200!" we exclaimed. That seemed rather steep for a bathtub, even one with hand-painted art.

"Well," Gail said confidentially, "I'd be willing to give it to you for $1,200. Do you live in the city? And do you rent or own?"

"Um, actually," we said, "could we get a Blues logo instead?"

"We can get anything put on it, if that's what you want."
