Yesterday I had a few minutes to myself so I stopped at our local Goodwill to look for some “crazy” shoes for the Edel conference. Like any good thrift store run you always leave with a little more than you were look for. This day was no different, I came home with
|okay this find was enough to make my day originally|
And then I went home.
Boring story right? Except that when I got home I jumped online and jokingly mentioned to some friends that I had found an interesting book at the store, but had not bought it. I was expecting a laugh or two, but instead I was suddenly inundated with replies “Go back and get it!” “Buy it! If you don’t want it I’ll take it!” and at least one claim of hyperventilation.
Caught up in the excitement I climbed back in the car and drove back to the store where this book was still sitting on the shelf where I had left it.

*I know there’s issues over the buying of relics. For now I’ll maintain that I was not “shopping” for a relic, and that the Goodwill did not understand that it was selling something other than a normal book. If nothing else I was “rescuing” the item after discovering what it was, but will be looking into any further steps I need to take to make legitimate and correct. Any advice as to what to do with it is appreciated.”
