I recently listed a “gently-used” set of Ikea shelves on Craigslist for $15. That’s fifteen dollars. Here’s a response I got to my post from “Eury”:
hi i am very interested in this book shelf i want to give it as a Christmas present to my girl friend . how ever i don’t have the 51 dollars your asking but i can trade u some things for it ..it would mean a lot to me if u would consider my offer..
i could trade u 2 DVD players plus some jordan sneakers and a georgio armani leather jacket which was actually kinda very expensive and only worn 3 times because it fits me kinda large but i am only 5 feet and 5 inches tall so its not hard to understand why
please call me to the following number and let me know if u are interested asap or email me back..thank you
Weirdly enough, i didn’t take Eury up on his offer. Did I err?

Wow…O. Henry is alive and well and living in Queens. I love it!
You always have the most…interesting “stuff” stories. Me? I just put a washer/dryer on craigslist, some guy bought it, The End.
Yeah, but you’ve got crack ho’s in your local alleyways. That’s something, right?
Anyway, if it makes you feel better, the girl I sold the shelves to was just a nice normal NYU co-ed.
Normality – pshaw.
On the other point, I hate to make the obvious joke, but just when I think the spectre of Marion Barry has passed on from our fair city, I get reminded of it. And/or he gets re-elected to something.
Honestly, I think part of the reason DC doesn’t have representation in Congress is three words: SENATOR. MARION. BARRY.
Not that I’m defending our disenfranchisement, but you know.
Still, I want to be a fly on the wall at Eury’s house.
DVD players, Jordan sneakers, Armani jackets — I’m thinkin’ “fell off the back of a truck,” am I right? Russian mafia, all the way. Who knows, if I’d called him back, I might be dead now!
I think you’re totally right. Or you might have an awesome new wardrobe. 😉
Wait! a counteroffer!
Wait! I have for trade you some disco pants, a pencil, a bowl of ramen noodles (out of box and cooked but still good for eating) and a giant clock with visible gears! all for your lovely norweigan shelves. Thank you!
