My mom, on the garage sale:
“I’m glad you guys made some money. I think I lost money. Who has a garage sale and comes out with less money than they went in with?”
I ask how much.
Maybe ten bucks, she answers.
This from the woman who was giving things away for 10 cents.
She sold my childhood stuffed cow for a dime.
She sold as many books as kids could carry for a dollar.
Overall, Mike and I each came out of it $55 richer.
And I got to introduce Nancy Drew to some little girls who didn’t know who she was.
We didn’t sell the oak desk, so if you’re in the market, hit me up.
