so chris sold the old boat on ebay last night (for all of $400 or so less than he bought it for).. the auction winner emailed him saying he’d like to meet on thursday night to pick up the boat…. IN JACKSONVILLE. i guess in this crazy auction winner’s mind, that’s the halfway point – and apparently he wasn’t paying attention to the fact that the winning bidder was responsible for pickup/shipping.
chris sat there looking dreadful and said, “i don’t want to have to go back to jacksonville.” bless his heart, right? who would even CONSIDER doing something like that? so i said, “chris! you’re NOT! … i FORBID it!” i really do appreciate the fact that he’s so nice, but he’s not doing an unexpected 10-hour drive to meet this guy halfway.
