Last weekend my husband came into the bedroom at 8:30 a.m. to nudge me awake. He looked at me with his soft brown eyes in a way that told me he was feeling frisky. Reaching for me with that secret smile on his face, he knew exactly how to get me going on a Sunday morning.
“Parri,” he whispered. “There’s an estate sale on Craigslist.”
“An estate sale?” I sprung to life. “Where?” Suddenly I was as alert as if I’d had three venti espressos.
“Palmetto and Gomez.”
“Come on. Someone’s getting our deals!”
I hopped in the shower, scrubbed up and was out in two minutes flat. With no time to waste, I stuck my hair in a headband, grabbed a diet Dr. Pepper and raced out the door, ready for the thrill of the find.
