Ebay Listing

Up for bid: One slightly used soul.
Great condition. Slightly tired.
Once was lost but then was found in 1998.
Washed clean in 2001. Since has seen some heartache and loss.
Been permanently tarnished by unforgiving hatred in the past.
Most wounds have healed completely with very little scarring.
Instant ticket to heaven upon death!!!
Need desperately to sell to pay off government loans!!


Not really, but what if we could really sell our eternal souls? Would kids sell them for a candy bar at a young age? Or maybe at sixteen we would have bartered it for a really nice car - "Man, I would give my soul for a Shelby!" Or even as an adult, would we have given it away just to find some true love? It's hard to know.

Note to Self: There is a peace that passes understanding that guards my soul.

SM - It is a dangerous concept. I think my soul could at least get me a nice house in Sun Valley...

I have to say - I am glad we can't! Our worlds would be a much scarier place.

Matt said...

So how did your blog score in that site you submitted it to?

Did you get the results back?

Sorry, I know this has nothing to do with your post but I am curious!

Hi MJ,

How else do you think most politicians get elected?

MJ said...

CM - So true.

Alison - It would be a scary place. Soul-less people walking around without impunity... oh wait, we already have lawyers *chuckle*

Matt - Haven't gotten reviewed yet. I probably won't for a few weeks. But I promise to keep you posted, even if I get a bad review.

Grit - LOL. My thoughts exactly...

I'll take it, always good to have an extra.

Did you submit to 'Ask and Ye Shall Receive' for a review?

MJ said...

FF - It would be good to have an extra. Kind of like how I always keep and extra pair of socks around... y'know.. just in case...

And yes, I did submit there for review recently. It was after I read the nice review they did for you.

Matt said...

A few weeks?

oh, the suspense...

I bet mine would never make the reserve price at auction.

I would like to bid 37 cents.

MJ said...

Matt - I know! It's killing me!

PE - I don't think mine would either.

Livin - You overbid.
