Looky what I found today!
Here's how the deal went down.
Charlie/Ben/Me driving around our neighborhood (the entire hood is having a sale). We are lookin' for trucks. I see this guy pull this bike out of one of those pod things in his front yard. (** SCREECH **) I pull to the curb.
HI! How much for the bike? (try try try to remain calm, abby)
Uh, um, oh, gosh (sounding annoyed) I dunno. (like he's annoyed he's having a sale) "Make me an offer." (heart pounding - thump thump thump)
How do you come up w/a price on the spot like that????? Don't want to under price. Don't want to go overboard. I want the DEAL!!!!!!!!!!
"Hmmmm... (my best attempt at sounding casual), what about FIFTY BUCKS?"
S O L D!
We now have the cruiser I'd been lookin' for.
SOOOO EXCITED TO RIDE IT IN THE HOOD!
Thanks, Dad, for frontin' the cash. You'd think w/ my addiction to garage sales I'd be prepared w/ cash. But apparently, I'm not.
