Default You're not gonna beleive this....

Hey folks -

I was at Ikea in Emeryville a few weeks ago and a friend of mine was doing some shopping for her sister as well. One of the items she was looking for was a chrome extendable-arm mirror for the bathroom. The first thing she said to me was: "you're not gonna beleive this" I asked her why and she told me that the type of mirror was called a "Frack" mirror! I know, I know, the Swedes don't really pronounce it the same way....


No kidding, really!

Here, take a look for yourself:

Ikea Frack Mirror

Maybe life did "begin out there" but I'll bet you never thought that it would show up this way!

Best,
Bryan
