something I don't need

Browsing aimlessly on craigslist, after ad after ad of mind numbingly banal furniture, I found this ad and suddenly developed a fit of object lust.
As you can see, it's an old card catalog, and beautifully made too. And reasonably priced.

Of course, I have absolutely no room for such a thing, or purpose.
I'm just hard wired to want it. I can't help it.

I only hope it will fall into deserving hands.

You'll make room. Get it.

And quickly!

it will come in handy next time you need to organize your dewey decimal system

I say get it. My hag has one. I don't know what she puts in all those drawers, but it definitely looks cool in her place.

She's a bit of a literary snob and will begin teaching English in the Fall so it's only natural, I suppose.

Well, it's certainly not going in my house. DAMN IT! I called, and it's gone. I'm not surprised since the ad is a week old, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I've always wanted one.

Miss J understands the appeal.

Oh, I knew it would have long been snatched up.

And good luck to your friend, Sam.
God bless her.

I often lust after objects I have no room for. See my previous comment about 70s Playgirl models.

Everyone can find room for one more '70s Playgirl Model, Colleen. They don't take up much room.
