I've Been What??
.....outbid? Say it isn't so.
I try to stay away from ebay as much as possible. Every once in a while though I'm in the market for something and I'll check to see if any are available on the site. Normally I'll find the "item" but it's not in the right condition, or size or color so you would think I've been saved from the unnecessary anguish and stress from a bidding session right? So totally wrong because I tend to wander about.
I have a love/hate relationship with ebay. The problem/addiction is that I'm very competitive in nature. You know the saying "its not if you win or lose, it's how you play the game?" fuck that happy horse shit cause i.want.to.win.
It could be a bottle top with a picture of Betty Boop on it, if I get any sense of wanting it, my game is on and watch out bidders, I play ruthlessly. As the minutes tick down to the end of the auction I'm there with sweaty palms, breath held in tight against my chest and brain cells clambering a mile a minute to make sure my best strategy is in play. When I win, I calmly sit back with a smile on my face and gloat inwardly for the next few minutes. If I lose, I hang my head low and feel like I've just pitched the softball that got connected to the winning home run.
This place is not a good place for me to visit on a regular bases. Right now I'm in the middle of a session that should be/has.to.be.done by tonight. There are already some very sweet winnings on their way to me but this last one, it's going to kill me because I have to win. Damn it, I will win.
Mrs Jude? She doesn't have a clue so shh it. Yes, she sees the empty boxes, looks at my smiling face and shakes her head but then again she was always on the sidelines watching me pitch so more than likely, she knows.
btw, hp? stands for horny people ;)
