A Love Letter To Craigslist

by Katy on September 28, 2010 · 6 comments

The following is a reprint of a previously published post. Enjoy!

Hello my darling craigslist, I think it’s time I start calling you Craig.

Cause I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Your silky smooth listings, your sweet smelling connection, your quick response to my touch.

Every time I worry that you might not provide for me, you come bearing gifts.

Free rocks for the backyard, a $50 dishwasher, an antique chair for the living room.

I know a relationship is doomed if it’s too one sided. That’s why I gave you a rocking chair, a bin of Duplos, piles of free fill dirt.

Oh, the dirt!

I worried you might fail me when I offered you the dirt. Yard after yard of free fill dirt. But I should never have worried, I know you’d never fail me.

That doubt now shames me. How could I have doubted our bond, our connection, our love?

Sometimes I wonder if I ask too much from you. I don’t want to be, dare I say it — needy.

Yet needy I am.

Furniture, appliances, landscaping goods.

I wonder how I ever lived without you.

My sweet, my love, my craigslist.

I am forever yours.

You forgot to mention that Craig is great at helping you find dates.

My husband is loving Craigslist right now. He turned his Star Wars room into a weight room over the summer, and he posted a bunch of his collectibles on Craigslist on Saturday. Within hours, he’d already sold a bunch of it. He’s made almost $300, and it’s only been 5 days.
