feeling: Fine

So, I am baffled by some of the shit on Craigslist.

See, for those of you who live under rocks, you can list things for sale or trade on Craigslist. It's great. I might sell my Bass Amp through it. It's been sitting in the garage for over a year now. Boo.

ANYWAY. I was on there tonight and I found this: dallas craigslist > items wanted > TUMMY CREAM/CELLULITE

The body of which reads something like this:
"TUMMY REDUCE CREAM.WILL BUY OR TRADE FOR BLOND HAIR COLOR OR LOTIONS."

This baffles me. Why would one trade someone else for this relatively inexpensive item? Why would someone who has this relatively inexpensive item trade for another commonly available relatively inexpensive item?

And why is it so urgent as to require typing in all caps? wink
