Sock Market Addiction

Post by unseentangerine » Sun Mar 29, 2015 7:00 am

I bought my first toe socks on Ebay three years ago. It was a rush like I'd never felt before. I stole the socks for just twelve cents each, and free shipping! I couldn't believe how easy it was. Eventually, I started buying socks I didn't need. I had thousands.
Then it hit me. I too could sell a few pairs, for say, twenty-four cents each and make a profit. I bought socks and resold them like shares of NASDAQ. I know that's what others buyers did too.
My empire crumbled after some argyles turned out counterfeit. I lost everything.

:? I don't really remember writing this. . maybe I was asleep? I don't know. I fixed the first sentence too.
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
