Getcher Fresh Hot Computers!

May 17, 2008

Journal, Lauren, Lloyd

That’s just the third of it, baby.

Lloyd had his computer sale at school today. He and some hard-working students set all the old-old stuff out on tables in the commons and then take people for all they’re worth. (It’s not the new-old stuff that he has bought at an auction this year, it’s the stuff that stuff replaced.)

They had pretty great attendance this year, and Lloyd says it’s because in past years he advertised in the ‘computer’ section of the classifieds. This year the ad was in the ‘garage sale’ section. Gold mine! People came in droves at the start and snapped up over half the stuff. They sold almost all the rest by the end of the day.

I wasn’t much help, except for making the signs. That’s right, they say “Computer Sale Today 9-3” both ways. And yes, those are repurposed Ron Paul signs.

So professional!

I ran my errands, and came back for lunch and was so tired. My sleep schedule is getting out of whack, so I really craved a nap. As I ate my cheeseburger in the school office, my eyes wandered to the nurse’s office. Hmmmmm….

Sweet, sweet cot!

Second gold mine!

    So “Garage Sale” people will buy crap more readily than “Computer Sale” people. That’s good to know…
