The things you can find on craigslist! Too bad the shopping season is over, because you could have saved a bundle on foodie gifts. There were some free glass jars for the jam-maker -- just add a ribbon and you've got a gift that says, "Please fill me with labor-intensive homemade jam and give me back!"
Or maybe your fun-loving friend would enjoy the occasional surprise of a warm beer from the "mind of its own" refrigerator. "The last time we plugged it in," it was cold, says the giver. Could be the cat's pajamas for a certain someone!
All for free, people!
Party in Walter Hill -- it's a yam giveaway! But wait -- there's more: tropical fruit and peanut butter, too.
Will someone be monsching on a free pumpkin, which the giver says doesn't seem rotted at all?
I thought this next one, a free plate of food, was a sly commentary on the nutty things people offer to give away. But it isn't -- it's an open-hearted offer to bring a turkey dinner to any elderly person in Spring Hill on Christmas Day. How precious is that? And how good to have people like this in our midst in the bleak midwinter.
