Why I Hate Yard Sales 101

During a recent reprieve from my better senses, a yard sale was to be had in my front yard. So, THIS PAIR OF SUNGLASSES: PLUS THIS PAIR OF BOXER BRIEFS:
ON THIS GUY:

Rode off into the sunset on his bicycle. I'm still trying to figure out why I'd go to anyone's yard sale and buy a bright blue pair of sunglasses and their boxer briefs and ride away on my bicycle. I've got horrible thoughts in my head. Is there any reason I hate yard sales?

LOL!!! Only you Lewis! What a tale! WHEW, what an unusual fellow this guy must have been.
PS- love the new pic. of you in the header!

K-A said...

That’s crazy, but terribly amusing. You're header picture is also crazy and terribly amusing... you 80's poster child, you.

Nathan said...

Wait wait, you put your old used undies in your yard for the whole world to see? Am I misreading this?

Well how much for an autographed photo of that groovy guy in your header?

Hmmm... wrong decade.. I meant to say how much for that rad guy in your header?

afod said...

I thought I saw those items on Ebay. The text about you and the sale accompanied the pictures on their site. ;-) Adorable header!

Maybe he had a themed costume party to go to and he was running late?

Eeeuw.

just nasty. I hope he enjoyed them....

Breenlantern said...

you could have sent me your boxer briefs for my birthday :-(

Seeing anyone cart away from my house anything I don't want is a welcome sight to me. It doesn't happen often enough. On the other hand, I don't put my underwear up for sale.

Keep putting up those modeling shots! I smile every time. Did they really consider those clothes good looking back then? Yeah, me too.

those sound like incredible bargains. You love garage sales!

Billy said...

Love the new header pic, style queen!

As for somebody else's underwear - eeeeuww! (Well, unless being used in erotic foreplay - but I digress!)

dit said...

LOL, The blue glasses cause everyone in used underwear looks better through them? I'm just sayin. lol

Laurie said...

Creepy!!!! I hope the boxer briefs
were at least clean.

HUGS!!

CJ said...

Did he try them on while there? He wore them as he rode off? That's not right Lewis.

Java said...

Oh, darling, I just ADORE the new header picture!! You are one sexy hunk o' man there!!

christopherc said...

The sunglasses I can see... actually, we've all wanted to be in your underwear, so I can see that too.

LOL


Hope you're well and all around you also.

i have to ask the tough question here
which is worse- buying the used boxer briefs, or selling them?

The Neighbors Will Hear said...

I don't get it. What else was he supposed to do with his bicycle besides ride off on it? Carry it over his head?

He was probably just poor. You have to be poor to buy someone else's underwear. And something of a skinflint to sell your own.

You should have offered him the pair you were wearing, too. You could have gotten a premium, I'm sure.

Greg said...

Dig the blue glasses, but the used undies? Hmm....

RAD said...

why are you selling old skivvies? must be a hot mess.....I thought you went commando anyhow?

Wayne said...

OMG! I can't believe you'd sell old briefs in a yard sale!
But then......go figure!

Jimmi said...

Don't even get me started on the yard sales. They are a dime a dozen in Phoenix and lets just say that people go to the good sales, low ball them, then go sell their shit on the corner of their apartment building... Ghetto!

Will said...

I bet he wasn't even LOOKING for undies until he caught sight of their former occupant and . . . .

The sunglasses are retro, so that explains them.

But the yard sale itself--does this mean that the condo has been found and the deal has been done?

Michael Guy said...

I can't believe you didn't 'silent auction' those undies right here.

I'd bid.

Timmy said...

I recently had a yard sale and sold some unusual items but not any of my undies. Is that a common practice in your neck of the woods? :-)
