★★★★★ (3 out of 5)
Hello, and welcome to my week-by-week review of everything in the world. Today I am reviewing Sky Mall.
If you ever get the chance to fly on an airplane, take a look at the reading material in the seat-back in front of you. Chances are there will be a copy of Sky Mall, a catalog full of amazing products, all of which are for sale. All of them!
And it’s not just regular stuff like a chair or a box. No, it’s amazing stuff that you didn’t even know you needed until you saw it. Like a chair with a seat warmer in it. And the box wouldn’t be regular either – it would have Mayan designs engraved on it. A perfect box for your patio garden.
Best of all, each item in the catalog is available for purchase immediately. That’s right, no having to wait until you land, because by the time you land you might forget. There’s a number you can call, and then I guess there’s someone just waiting to answer, and then whatever you want, it’s already made like they knew you were going to buy it.
Unfortunately, I’ve never actually bought anything from Sky Mall. Their prices are a bit out of my range. I keep thinking I’ll save my money for one item, but then I turn the page and discover a different item that I also want! There are so many amazing items I’ll never be able to save my money. If I knew how to make one of those sad faces I get in my email, I would make one here.
I do have some complaints about Sky Mall. The biggest is that it is not an actual mall that exists in the sky. Also, technically speaking, the name of the catalog should be changed to Land Mall when a plane is on the ground, but I’m not sure the technology exists to make that happen yet. Can a Kindle do that? I’m not sure, but it’s something to consider.
Please join me next week when I’ll be reviewing a Lamborghini.
