It Could Be Worse

Yikey-shnikeys, I just read this hilarious ebay listing: Lot of Pokemon Cards That My Kids Tried to Sneak By Me. If you've got 5 minutes, read it, laugh, and feel better about your life, your kids, and your last grocery trip.

Then get this lady to write your next ebay listing so you can make lots of money.

That was so hilarious!! I was laughing aloud, enough so that I got a raised eyebrow from my hubby and got to share this anecdote with him. How did you come across that? I am going to send it to all the moms I know.

I guess if you write a zippy description you bid up the price nicely.. it's now at over $140.

Well just to be clear, I didn't find it by searching for Pokemon cards on ebay. I'm on a Yahoo group for parents in my neighborhood and someone posted it on there. I laughed out loud as well and decided it was blogworthy.

I don't know if that posting got her all the attention or if her blog was popular before, but I checked out her blog and she has over 100 comments on each thing!!! Some have over 300, whoa. I think the ebay listing just got forwarded and forwarded around, like we're doing now. Marie, I bet your mom would find it especially funny.

I intend to pass it along today. (I'm playing catch-up after a delightful, but long vacation). Oh, and I checked out the author's blog and found a particularly surprising stat - 77,000 hits in ONE DAY (I was skimming, so I hope I got that right). She had her in-laws watch her kids so she could respond to all the e-mails and comments.
