Me: 
Friend – you really do have some great things.  Let us barter.

Alex:
ok what do you have?

Me:
Well, what is it that you seek?  Not only do I have material objects but I also have great knowledge I would be willing to share with you… for the right trade.

Alex: 
Look stop wasting my time. Give me a list of what you are offering. I seek anything and everything. I dont need great knowledge as I already have that so what material objects do you have.

Me:
I did not mean to upset you or “waste your time” – Forgive me if I did.
 
I have many things you may like.  I have some original paintings (some framed), a coffee maker, broken microwave, popcorn maker (it burns the popcorn alot of the time though), two life size statues of dwight eisenhower (they accidentaly sent me two) a big cd collection and some very interesting books.  I also have an old bike and some shovels.  My jacuzzi is not for sale/trade though, so please dont ask.
 
Which items of yours would you like to trade for mine?

Alex:
do you have pics of the statues and the old bike?

Me:
Here is a picture of my eisenhower statue.  The other one is just like it but its in storage.  Also here is a picture of my bike.  It is very comfortable and has been through alot of funny stories that I can tell you if you want to know them.  Like the time I rode it naked through my college campus (THATS A GOOD STORY – YOULL LIKE THE END!)

Alex:
What do you want to trade for the statue.

Me:
How about the guitar/amp, waterfall and either the laptop or the car sound system?

Alex:
Ill give you the guitar alone for it.

Me:
You drive a hard bargain.  Eisenhower was a great president and this is a great statue.  He looks really funny when you put different hats on him  (One time my friend put a KKK hood over it – really funny looking) – What kind of guitar is it?

Alex:
Fender. How much is the statue worth?

Me:
It is truly one of a kind so I would say it is almost priceless.  What kind of Fender?  Strat? Telly? Is it American made or Mexican?

Alex:
american strat the neck was replaced a year ago.

Four days later…

Me: 
I am embarassed to admit this, but I broke my statue while trying to get it ready to trade with you.  I have been trying to put it back together for the last couple days, this is why you have not heard from me.  I got most of it back together, but it doesnt really look like Dwight D Eisenhower anymore.  Still interested?

Alex:
nope

Me:
It sort of looks like a down syndrome Tom Bergeron now.  So maybe that could be interesting?

Alex:
maybe not.

Oh SNAP!  

Just think, with this one trade, Alex could have become the world’s foremost conniseur of “Tom Bergeron afflicted with Down Syndrome” art.

Looks like you missed the boat on this one Alex! 

Well, maybe I’ll invite you to my T.B.A.W.D.S gallery when it opens.

maybe not.

Namaste.
