Sam, this one’s for you.
We took Lloyd’s parents to the UNL surplus auction this morning. (Yay! A surplus action! Sam, this is where you stand up and cheer.) We saw all kinds of junk fine items there. The best thing there were these chairs from the dorm rooms. You could sit in them regularly, or lean back in them without bending any back legs. (When people lean back in chairs it’s one of my pet peeves because at school I’m the one who has to fix the chairs when the legs get bent or broken. I’m a big ol’ wet blanket, y’know.)
Lloyd’s mom is leaning back, and trust me – she is super comfy!
Despite Lloyd’s parents being there, this guy looked the most like Lloyd:
At the auction, Lloyd was the Bad Guy. There were sixteen tables and several eager bidders. Lloyd won the bid with $7 a table, and when asked, “How many will you take?” he answered, “All of them”. There was a collective intake of breath and general seething followed. I plucked the visual daggers out of his back later.
I didn’t buy this sign, but the sentiment is so, so true.
