SWAP MEET WITH THE IN-LAWS

I don't mind my in-laws. I realize that in-laws are generally the target of jokes and the prop of many sitcoms, but I actually enjoy my in-laws. They were here all last week, and played games and went to a swap meet at the local fairgrounds.

That swap meet sucked. At least I think it sucked. Maybe I don't understand what a swap meet is. In my head, a swap meet is a place where a bunch of folks have garage sales in one place, and everybody wins. Consumers get stuff for cheap, and sellers get rid of stuff they didn't want anyway. Sure, some of the stuff ends up being crap, but at least it's inexpensive crap. This swap meet I attended was filled with people selling "antique" and "antique looking" stuff for WAY too much money. I don't get it. Isn't that just like... a store? I dunno. Whatever. I'm going to try another swap meet next month in a small town called Elma. Small rural towns have a lower cost of living, thus driving down the prices of otherwise decent products. At least I believe that to be the case. We shall see.
