So, while reading her blog a couple weeks ago at home (wink) I see she has these metal numbers for sale...I love numbers and knew I had to have them. I mean, seriously, the 1 & 4 will be adorable on my mantel in February for Valentine's Day. Hello! Cute! OR just the 4 on the 4th of July! Hello! Cute!Then the next day I see this necklace she posted and loved it! So, I emailed her and bam...it was mine! Hello! Cute! So, she sends the great metal numbers to me today, along with the necklace and inside the package is an added bonus: this spoon with JUNK GIRL on it! My blog name! Hello! Cute!
The two charms I already had and I think the three go together well. It's SO me! How did she know?! Please check out her blog by clicking here: http://www.artsyfartsyfinds.blogspot.com. The girl has me in stitches daily with her great humor/stories, and she will you, too. So, today I thought I'd tell you a "funny" story myself, and it just happens to be junk related.
A couple years ago a house in town was being torn down, and word on the street was they were selling everything in it - doors, windows, woodwork, etc. The guy at the house asks me if I am looking for anything in particular and I ask if there were any old cupboards. He tells me there are some, down in the basement. Well, I proceed to follow him down in this dark, damp, smelly basement to find the cupboards were ugly and not at all what I wanted. So, I follow him back upstairs and leave. A few days later I find out the guy is a REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER. Oh, nice one! Just dandy. You have to understand: 1) this would only happen to me, and 2) don't tell my husband because he has no idea I was an IDIOT and went in a basement alone with a complete stranger. After the horrific discovery, I unfortunately made the mistake of blurting it to my lovely co-workers who understandably have never let me live it down to this day. No, I wasn't attacked and thank God I evidently wasn't interesting prey. They tell me I would have gone down in that basement even if I had known, since they are aware I have gone to great lengths for junk. Uh, NO!!
Hey, if you've got a great/fun/inspiring or disturbing story (like mine) to tell, please leave a comment. After all, we could all use a good laugh!
