Some things in life ARE free

Like this pool table that was given to my husband recently-- all he had to do was pick it up, take it apart, transport it to our house, put it back together and find a spot to keep it while we advertised it for sale. A quick, easy $200. It would be there tops, two weeks we figured. Surely someone was looking for a great deal on a pool table and willing to part with a few hundred dollars for it, come and pick it up and everyone's happy. Sounds good in theory.

Except that's not what's happening. Now we have a pool table sitting in our garage in the spot where my husband used to park his car, and we are wondering if we can even give this thing away.

The mornings are getting colder and while the pool table is nice and snuggly warm, the car is very chilly. I guess we should have wondered why we were getting it for free. Now we know.

We've had that same pool table experience. They are hard to get rid of! Maybe because they are such a pain to move, and not a lot of people have that kind of extra space in their home. We actually enjoyed ours (my car has never seen the inside of a garage anyway), but when we moved we left it for the new owners (who may be cursing us right now...)
