I don't know about anyone else's day, but...

A few minutes ago, a posting was taken down from craigslist, which is I'm sure not terribly unique. In this case, a person placed an add in the free column offering up a baby grand piano to whoever would like it. Apparently, her husband ran off and left her*.

I will just say, kinda wanna find out if she meant it. Now it is gone and we can only mourn and marvel at a man who has never read snopes in his life and apparently didn't think this through too well. I am not so much celebrating destruction or such of personal property, but embrancing the spirit of freecycling she obviously was trying to teach. As one does.

This? Is a good day. And it does not hurt I have tomorrow off, which means my joy is tenfold and my cup runneth over.

*Yes, it could be fake, but isn't it so much funnier if it wasn't? Do you really want to take that away from me? Do you?

See now, you present an interesting question. Because you are awful funny when things upset you.

I don't think it was fake, you should keep your enthusiasm!

I gave away an upright piano at the weekend - it warbled horribly, was ugly, needed tuning and I wanted the space. And, okay, so a baby grand is rather nicer and more valuable than an ancient upright. But, I wanted someone else to do the heavy lifting of getting rid of mine, she wanted to kick her ex in the nads. The charitable principle's much the same...

When I sold my (ex-husband's) motorcycle on Ebay, I did put in the listing that it was his and wasn't now neener neener.

Sold it in 10 hours with a Buy-It-Now to an Iowa lesbian.

Life is good.

(I didn't do anything like that with the ugly piano he bought me with my money. There's no need for stories when you're *giving* stuff away)

Probably not fake. If you don't play it, baby grand pianos mostly just take up space.
