The garage sale

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.

Small success!
