Mom goes shopping, gains $142.51

My lovely husband Anthropapa just sent me a link to this, which is the funniest eBay offering I have ever seen.

Who knew that someone could get someone else to pay that much for a package (opened, even) of Pokemon cards just for writing a witty description? Makes me want to consider my “I’m not a writer, I’m an editor” stance.

Sometimes I wonder why Anthropapa isn’t doing something more constructive with his time than perusing Digg, like cleaning something or writing that grad school essay, and then I remember to be thankful for the entertainment break, and go back to my own constructive work, blogging.
