Slow News Week...

So the Pembroke Express finally ran their feature article on Yard Sale Buddy! I haven't seen it yet, but he called me up all excited to read me some excerpts; specifically, the ones where I was quoted. I listened with half an ear as he went on "Mr. Yard Sale Buddy is affiliated with Salvage Chick of Salvage Chic Antiques on Route 14..." blah blah blah "Salvage Chick says that Yard Sale Buddy is one of those people who just can't bear to see anything go to waste..." WHAT? Wait a minute, Back up, Read that again. I KNEW I should not have granted that Lois Lane Chick an interview. She TOTALLY misquoted me. "Oh really?" said Yard Sale Buddy with genuine concern; "you mean because she said your shop is on Route 14 instead of Route 27? Maybe we could have her print a correction." NO - the part about you being unable to bear seeing anything go to waste. "You didn't say that?" he asked incredulously; "Did you say something close to that?" I fought back the giggles. "What I SAID was 'He's the cheapest guy I know'. Dead silence. Now I was fighting back tears of laughter "and the One Time he pulled out his wallet and bought me an ice cream Moths flew out that last saw daylight during the Nixon Administration." More silence. "AND, he'd sell his own mother for 5 bucks." That's when he caught the joke and gave his patented deadpan response: "I'd have to get at least ten."
