Big Boy Says It All

So, we're in the middle of packing, throwing away, reworking, revamping, downsizing, blah blah blah. We had this HUGE, GIANT computer desk and hutch to get rid of. It's in three unwieldy pieces, heavy, awkward.....and in the basement. Not so pretty with two gay boys who hate to break a sweat dragging that mother up from the depths. So, I run an ad on Craigslist at 8:30am.... saying that it's "free" and to be picked up after 10am. At 9:45 we're hauling piece by piece out to the curb and, low and behold, here sits a truck already waiting...... with daddy and two boys inside. And guess what one boy was wearing and looked like:



Pic is a little hard to read...but it says "Anorexia Survivor" on it. Oh my.

The t-shirt is a winner! And where were they when you were dragging that monster up the stairs? You should have advertised "free, you move" and let Mr. Anorexia Survivor and his kin haul it up the stairs.

If I can find a way to avoid breaking a sweat, I go for it!

That's why he's like that:people like you doing all the work.
Don't over do it.

Holy chow. He needs to lift a few desks.

We're getting rid of a bunk bed in a similar fashion. We told the teen next door she can have whatever she gets for if she sells it. She needs the money for college. And she and her boyfriend have to disassemble and move it. Everybody wins.

When you say free on Craig's list, it goes fast! I do that for the left-overs of my plant sale.
