I'm sorry, I can't hear you.
After years and years of using my grandparents' classic old Oster blender, circa 1957 (beehive shaped, brown), I broke the jar and ordered the new jar from eBay but had since thrown away the blade part and the new jar didn't come with the blade part and finally I just decided to give up and buy a whole new one.
After half an hour of deliberation at Target, I bought a new Osterizer, same as the old Osterizer. Except even more old school, since the Grands' had had a rheostat to control the blade speed and this one is so retro it just has an on-off toggle switch.
Merely 2 weeks after bringing it home, I dragged it out of the box to whip up a batch of Minty Lime Coolers.
The noise the thing made defies description. Your noisiest hair dryer does not begin to approach the volume. A leaf blower? Maybe closer. A snow blower? Dunno, I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA hahahaha.
Jet engine before takeoff? Yes, exactly. Exactly. The dog bolted in fear. I almost wet myself. Again.
Back to Target. Any suggestions?
