Moving-Out Sale

Recently, I had to sell a lot of items from my home because I am trying to be a minimalist. Of course, the word has my own meaning that can be different from what the world thinks of it. Anyway, below is the list of items I was selling.

  1. A maze shaped sofa. Excellent condition. Perfect for uninvited guests and for guests who ‘drop by’ without calling.
  2. Hulk sized cot-sparingly used. The cot is perfect for a family of four with another family of ten soft toys sleeping cozily together.
  3. One TV unit with a bookshelf and a hidden tunnel that can hide your stash of.. whatever. Excellent condition. The tunnel is password and captcha protected. The password and captcha come for an extra price.
  4. A curved Asian sword. The edge of the sword is on the convex side of the beauty. Perfect for notifying noisy neighbors of their decibel levels.
  5. A chair that stands with poise on all fours. One leg has a scratch, but that does not deter its wooden spirit. Buyer will definitely not get a feeling of shoeburyness. (check Urban Dictionary for the word.)
  6. The Official Guide to GRE. I’m also throwing in an unofficial guide on ‘what-not-to-do’ for the exam based on first hand experience. The unofficial guide comes for free!
  7. An oven.
  8. A blanket, sparingly used.
  9. A collection of vintage pebbles collected from various places. Priceless but comes for a price.

Let me know if you are interested. Genuine buyers only.


An interested candidate sends followup questions:

Buyer: Can you send pics of the items? Also, tell us your number.
Me: Item list with pics is available here. (*hyperlinked*). Prices mentioned on the list. My number is:9876543210

Buyer: Do you have a single cot?
Me: No. I have a Hulk cot.

Buyer: Can you sell a single cot?
Me: I have a Hulk cot.

Buyer: Is the oven a microwave oven, a stove oven, or an oven oven?
Me: It is an oven that is spelled O-V-E-N.

Buyer: What kind of a blanket is it?
Me: As per the picture on the list, the blanket is a Genie blanket. It is a magic flying blanket that can transport you to places when you run out of gas. When you are not flying on it, you can use it on your bed.

Buyer: You didn’t tell me about the oven.
Me: Are you kidding me? Have you seen the photo?

Buyer: You are sick.
Me: You don’t get the pebbles.

Buyer: Absolutely sick.
Me: The items with revised prices are on the same list. (*increases prices for all items*)
