…then it’s good enough for me!
Yes, my family is gonna have us a yard sale today. (OK, technically I’m logging this on Friday night. But as I get up at 5-frickin-AM to get started, I won’t be in any mood to be a-blogging.) You’d think after reading about Solly’s yard sale folly, I’d know better. Nahhhhhhhhhhh……
Of course, we don’t live in the oppresive Florida heat. So we ought to be safe from melting. Actually, we’re sweating whether or not it’s gonna rain.
I really hate doing these things. (My day job is retail management. So I take a day off from work to do what? Sell stuff? At home?) And we do them every year, sometimes twice a year. But at least a bunch of junk gets out of my house, we get a little bit of scratch cash, and most of the junk stays out of my house. (Making more room for new junk!) At least my wife has relented in recent years, and is allowing me to cart off much of what’s left at the end of the day to the Goodwill Store. Only a small portion of it gets packed away for the next sale…… and it resides in the garage.
Wish me well, or laugh thinking of me all day. (Hell, if you knew me well enough, you could laugh thinking about me most any day….sheesh!) Maybe the Rasreth family will even land here in time to have that laugh in person.
I’m gonna practice…. “No, I won’t take a quarter for that! It’s marked fifty cents, and that’s what I’m gonna get! Awwwwwwww, alright. A quarter. Thankyouverymuch.”
