Got Newspaper?

Get Your Own Piece of History!! by chip py the photo guy

So were you able to pick up your super special election edition of the Washington Post last night?  You know, the one that was supposed to be available at 3:00 and then showed up at 7:00?  The one that cost $1.50 instead of $1?

I went down to my local 7 Eleven at 5:00 and saw that the newspaper stands were empty.  I asked the  clerk if they’d already sold out and he said to come back between 6:30 and 7:00.  When I arrived at 7, everyone in line had several copies and there were no more left.  “Oh well,” I thought.  I really didn’t know why I wanted one anyway.  What was I going to do with a newspaper?  Save it until I’m 100 years old and give it to my grandkids?

Just then I saw a line of people on the corner and a guy with stacks and stacks of newspapers in the back of his SUV.  It was like he was selling hot DVD players or something.  I got in line and a few minutes later purchased four newspapers, one for me and several copies for my friends.  Score!

How long did you wait in line?  How many copies did you buy?  What are you going to do with yours?
