not getting stabbed is always a plus

My sister, Pee (yes, this is her real nickname - don't ask) and her husband (I'm thinking his pseudo-name should be SonofaDutch, but I'm not sure that does him justice because it sounds kind of bad & he's actually quite nice.  If you know him, you'd get it.  If you don't, just laugh & picture him however you want.) and their delightful 8 month old daughter are getting ready to move. 

I guess people nowadays don't have moving sales.  They just put their stuff on Craigslist.  Craigslist is like a yard sale without the awkwardness of sitting around trying to not watch people judge your stuff.

I myself have never used Craigslist.  However, my sister and her hubby have had great success with selling some of their furniture.  In fact, I spoke to SonofaDutch on the phone today & he mentioned that they just sold their very large sectional couch for a really good price.  I said something like, "That's great!  Craigslist has really been working for you guys.  You have gotten all cash buyers and no Craigslist killers."

To which SonofaDutch replied, "Yes, Craigslist is great, and not getting stabbed is always a plus."

Not getting stabbed is always a plus. 

I like that phrase, because it's always true in pretty much any circumstance.  I'm trying to think of a time when getting stabbed would be a plus, and I can't come up with anything.

Yes, I must say, not getting stabbed is always a plus.  (But I'm also probably never going to use Craigslist because I can't say it without following it up with the word "killer".)


  1. That SoD guy sounds pretty awesome! Cool nickname, too. I think the key to not getting attacked on Craigslist is posting your wares under a tough nickname like "NavySealTeamSix".

  2. Good point. Since you have taken that one, I guess I'll have to think of a new one. Maybe "idial357not911"? Totally just kidding, I actually prefer a 9mm. kidding. again. sort of.
