Since I am moving on a strict budget I have been searching for a lot of things that I need on Craigslist.
I ventured over to the “Free Stuff” section of Craigslist and ran across an ad that said the following:
Title: Free Bucket of Candy and 2 Vases (mid-city)
“I have two pumpkin trick or treat buckets full of perfect good halloween candy and two small vases I’m giving away for free. If you want something you have to take it all.”
I guess it’s because my vice is candy and that I have a weird sense of humor but I sat here laughing at this ad for a few minutes to myself.
I DESPERATELY want to know if anyone responded to this ad and if they did who are they? How old was the person? Were they 29 and addicted to candy like me? Was it an old creepy man that came by to pick up the candy wearing a t-shirt with cats on it?
I think I am going to write them an email and ask them if anyone came and picked it up.
………a few moments later.
Ok I wrote them. This is what I said:
“I think that your ad is really cute. I love candy but I am a grown adult so I am going against everything in me to not go for it and take this candy off your hands. I just really want to know if you actually ended up giving this away and to who (gender/age)…..I am just strangely curious about this. Good luck!”
I promise to post their reply if they end up writing back.
You see….this is what happens when you are 29, your boyfriend lives in another state, you aren’t into the “crazy night life” and the idea of a nice Saturday is filled with ideas of watching Dateline, taking a bubble bath and maybe eating a nice bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I guess I have too much time on my hands. BAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA
So I am moving into a studio which means it doesn’t come with a refrigerator. Apparently that’s the rule with studio rentals in Los Angeles
During my time browsing through the “Free Stuff” section I also ran across an ad for a free mini fridge that is going to be put in an alley way at 10am tomorrow for whoever wants it. The way I just worded that sentence totally sounds like the ending to a bad morning…….
Anywho, I am interested in said free fridge considering I was checking them out at Lowe’s tonight and they are $150-$300 and frankly I would rather spend that money flying to see my boyfriend OR paying my bills. Priorities.
Here is what I wrote to the creator of the free fridge ad:
“I am really interested in coming to pick up your fridge but I don’t want to run into an awkward encounter with someone that also wants it. I’m not sure what we would do….perhaps play a game of rock, paper, scissors? I am writing you to ask you for specific directions to the “alley” where this fridge is going to be placed in the event that it isn’t an obvious location. Thanks so much!”
I think I may be enjoying responding to these “Free Things” ad a little too much.
In fact, I am enjoying this so much that I just got done fantasizing about having a roommate that I can go on “Free Adventures” with during the weekend. We could sit around on a Saturday morning checking out the free stuff on Craigslist and go out and retrieve all of our new fun things. Maybe we could even start an Etsy store and sell all of our new stuff or just start a junk pile and laugh about all the crap that is in our house.
But then I remembered, I will have no roommate.
DREAM SEQUENCE OVER.
