The first call came at 12:45am.
“Hi, I’m wondering if you still have the cat mailbox?”
“The cat mailbox! I just saw the ad on Craigslist.”
“Posted about a half hour ago – it’s darling.”
Lady, it’s the middle of the night, and I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Do you have any idea how many people in Middle Tennessee have been waiting their entire lives for a free mailbox in the shape of a yellow tabby cat? 27. TWENTY-SEVEN PEOPLE have called me in the past 15 hours, responding to an ad on Craigslist that I did not post – but that clearly stated my name and phone number.
This is worse than a “Call for a good time” scrawled in a bathroom stall.
