I was actually looking for information on where in the world I can buy a goddamn Nintendo wii for my kids for Hanukkah (if you know, please tell me). I detoured off to Best of Craigslist because of an article I read recently (You Say Fake Ads, They Say Satire – NY Times 11/15/2007) about how writers test their worth by writing fictional Craigslist posts (which I’ve written about before) and I thought it might be a fun change of pace. It was. Today, this one just cracked me up. I don’t care if it’s real or not. The poster is ostensibly from Ann Arbor, MI.
To The Stoner Who Works At Cottage Inn Pizza
Date: 2007-09-18, 11:30AM EDT
You: the guy who answers the phone at cottage inn pizza
Me: Hungry and stoned out of my gourd
I called you from my cell phone but had completely forgot who I was calling by the time you answered the phone. Of course, you were also baked to bajeezus and forgot to tell me that I had called Cottage Inn.
When you answered and said, “Whatsup?” I thought about it, and after a 20 second pause I told you that was hungry. You suggested I try a pizza, and I agreed that it was probably a good idea.
Then I asked you if you sold pizza and you said that you could make me one. I said I wanted anchovies and something else on my pizza. You asked me what that something else was.
We spent five minutes listing toppings until we figured out that I was trying to remember how to say: “Sun dried Tomatoes.” When you said: “We’ll bake that right up for you,” we both started laughing uncontrollably.
It was the best pizza I ever had; I just wanted to thank you for helping me out.
That’s just poetic.
