I was solicited outside a grocery story today by an artist. He really, really wanted to show me his drawings... he said, "it would really make him happy."
I said, "Why?"
He is trying to sell them. They are "awesome" circles and black dots and lines on lined college rule paper. He is only selling them for $1 and $2 each. I should have just bought one to scan in.
I said I didn't have any cash. Of all the things I could have used as an excuse, I felt bad. I might as well have said, "They are terrible."
As I started walking away, I turned back. "Have you tried Craigslist?"
No, thank you, he replies. I think he thought I was trying to invite him someplace.
I took a step closer and said again, "Have you tried selling them on Craigslist?"
"No. I don't have a camera."
"You could use the public libraries scanner."
"No. I don't want to."
A new thing - I started a new thing where I relay my husband's strong opinions about consumer products. It's called Justin's Opinions. So far there are posts about coffee...
