Title: Retro Dreams
Post by: Paul on November 18, 2009, 02:35:25 PM
I was at some flea market, and saw a 1540 drive sitting on a sewing machine. Some kind of gunk was plugging up the screw holes on the bottom. I asked the lady how much; she had a heavy accent and said $6.50. I asked her if it still worked, and she said she didn't know. I told her all I would offer was $5. She said I could have it for $5, took it from me, and told me that all items had to be "Delivered." She then walked into the back room with the 1540. I protested; I didn't want it delivered. Then I could see her in that back room, putting the 1540 into its original box, then she taped up that box. She came back and gave it to me with a smile and said, "See? Now it's delivered."

As I was walking away, boxed 1540 under my arm, my alarm clock woke me up.
