Perusing Craig’s List merely for the purpose of obtaining goods and services to meet your needs is somewhat akin to bringing home the Russian classics to keep the paperwork from blowing around on your desk. Really, both are meant to be savored, yes?
Today, for instance:
Lovely sofa and love seat – $300 (Inner Loop)
This lovely brown textured love seat and sofa was less than a year old when I left my husband because I caught him sending and receiving inappropriate photos with the lady in New Jersey that is now his dominatrix.
Since our separation, he went through a period of not bathing himself or the dogs, drinking Makers Mark, smoking Marlboros and having casual sex.
As such, this otherwise beautiful living room set smells of dog, booze and despair.
“Being at a loss to resolve these questions, I am resolved to leave them without any resolution.” ― Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
