He's so proud, our Hick, every time he finds treasures at Goodwill. I can only imagine if his auction was still operating. He would be beside himself. And NOT beside ME, at least one other night of the week!
Here's the latest. He was sure to send me a picture and the details as soon as he unloaded them over in the BARn.
I'm sure you can figure out International Man of Espionage Hick's cryptic message:
Duck 50/ash trays 50 each /brush 1.00/hat 1.00/mail box 1.00/mask 2.00
He spent a grand total of $6.50 on that collection. Which is...um...about $6.50 too much in my opinion. But Hick didn't ASK for my opinion, now did he? Much like that last lawnmower purchase (if only THAT had cost $6.50. Or even $650.00, instead of $1700.00) or his shoe inserts from The Good Feet Store (which would have been another bargain at $6.50. Or even $650.00, instead of $1000.00).
Seriously. That mask is just downright creepy. Is Hick throwing a Mardi Gras party? I'd rather bite into the plastic baby in the King Cake and owe everybody next year's cake and party rather than see somebody (ESPECIALLY HICK) wearing that mask!
I could understand the shoeshine brush, to go with Hick's...um...SHELF that the cat uses for a bunk.
But I don't think Hick is gonna be battin' for the Cardinals any time soon.
Unless he's taken up smoking without telling me and without stinking, I see no need for the two ash trays. Perhaps he wants the New Mexico one to go with his tiny Texas collector plate. That Yum Yum Tree ashtray is not good for anything but flinging at Hick in a fit of rage. (note to self)
A man with a yard full of real, live chickens does not need a fake duck.
And that mailbox is WAY too tiny to be useful.
The joke could be on me, with Hick planning a special shack for each of those items, to fill with like treasures from future shopping sprees. I'm not laughing.
